From the direction of the tracks it was evident they were going south—and in a hurry. Pete would have traded half his life's span right then for a horse. He looked over the campground and found a number of imprints of Betty's shoes and a small, lace- edged handkerchief which he guessed Betty must have left pur- lope that it might be found.
