Even his cuff-buttons were engraved with hieroglyphics, and he was read: more inscribed than an Egyptian obelisk. Once when he sat down to chat, he told us that in the immigrant car ahead there was a family from across the water whose destination was the same as ours. They cant any of them speak English, except one little girl, and all she can say is "We go Black Hawk, Nebraska." Shes not much older than you, twelve or thirteen, maybe, and shes as bright as a new dollar. Dont you want to go ahead and see her, Jimmy? Shes got the pretty brown eyes, too! This last remark made me bashful, and I shook my head ^id settled down to Jesse James. Jake nodded at me approvingly.I do not remember crossing the Missouri River, or anything about the longdays journey through Nebraska. Probably by that time I had crossed so manyrivers that I was dull to them. The only thing very noticeable about Nebraskawas that it was still, all day long, Nebraska. •£fb * 4 ^HHIH f r I had been sleeping, curled up in a red fe-. ^BP plush seat, for a long while when we reached Black Hawk.

In the red glowfrom the fire-box, a group of people stood huddled together on the platform,encumbered by bundles and boxes. I knew this must be the immigrant familythe conductor had told us about. ITie woman wore a fringed shawl tied overher head, and she carried a little tin trunk in her arms, hugging it as if it were ababy. There was an old man, tall and stooped. Two half-grown boys and a girlstood holding oilcloth bundles, and a little girl clung to her mothers skirts.Presently a man with a lantern approached them and began to talk, shoutingand exclaiming. I pricked up my ears, for it was positively the first time I hadever heard a foreign tongue.Another lantern came along. A bantering voice called out: Hello, are you Mr.Burdens folks?

  • 44. i9H5) Reading Performance Assessment Task 2 High Scliool - 2009 - My Antonia wide leather band and a bright buckle, and the ends of his moustache were Notes on my thoughts, twisted up stiffly, like little horns. He looked lively and ferocious, I thought, reactions and questions as I and as if he had a history. A long scar ran across one cheek and drew the read: comer of his mouth up in a sinister curl. The top of his left ear was gone, and his skin was brown. Surely this was the face of a desperado. As he walked about the platform in his high-heeled boots, looking for our trunks, I saw that he was a rather slight man, quick and wiry, and light on his feet. He told us we had a long night drive ahead of us, and had better be on the hike. He led us to a hitching-bar where two farm-wagons were tied, and I saw the foreign family crowding into one of them. The other was for us. Jake got on the front seat with Otto Fuchs, and I rode on the straw in the bottom of the wagon-box, covered up with a buffalo hide. The immigrants rumbled off into the empty darkness, and we followed them. I tried to go to sleep, but the jolting made me bite my tongue, and 1 soon began to ache all over. When the straw settled dowTi, I had a hard bed. Cautiously 1 slipped from under the buffalo hide, got up on my knees and peered over the side of the wagon. There seemed to be nothing to see; no fences, no creeks or trees, no hills or fields. If there was a road, I could not make it out in the faint starlight. There was nothing but land: not a country at all, but the material out of which countries are made. No, there was nothing but land—slightly undulating, I knew, because often our wheels ground against the brake as we went down into a hollow and lurched up again on the other side. I had the feeling that the world was left behind, that we had got over the edge of it, and were outside mans jurisdiction. I had never before looked up at the sky when there was not a familiar mountain ridge against it. But this was the complete dome of heaven, all there was of it. I did not believe that my dead father and mother were watching me from up there: they would still be looking for me at the sheep-fold down by the creek, or along the white road that led to the mountain pastures. I had left even their spirits behind me. The wagon jolted on, carrying me I knew not whither. I dont think I was homesick. If we never arrived anywhere, it did not matter. Between that earth and that sky I felt erased, blotted out. I did not say my prayers that night: here, I felt, what would be would be.Reading and LiteratureOregon Department of Education Office of .Assessment and Information Services
