Knibbs, Henry Herbert: Jim Waring of Sonora-Town. V1. 18 Dec 2009
Knibbs, Henry Herbert, 1874-1945, wrote 13 novels and six books of poems.Rembered most for his Western Poetry.
Waring picketed his horse in a dim angle of the Agua Fria Cañon, spread his saddle-blanket to dry in the afternoon sun, and, climbing to a narrow ledge, surveyed the Cañon from end to end with a pair of high-power glasses. He knew the men he sought would ride south. He was reasonably certain that they would not ride through the Cañon in daylight. The natural trail through the Agua Fria was along the western wall; a trail that he had avoided, working his toilsome way down the eastern side through a labyrinth of brush and rock that had concealed him from view. A few hundred yards below his hasty camp a sandy arroyo crossed the cañon’s mouth.
