The Ancient One warned the tribe that the Fire Huntress was coming and would burn the prairie. "I smell her in the air. She will devour all who stand before her. Nothing can stop her. She will eat the land, destroy what few buffalo and animals are left. She will consume the very soul of the earth."
In Chesterville, Wyoming, others were also worried about the prolonged drought. What would they do if the prairie caught on fire? Could they save the city? Jamie Larson decided to buy a hand fire pumper, but that would protect his Lead Sky Livery and Dray and Sherman's Hotel and Bar. What about the town?
Asher Grubel wanted the Fire Huntress to come. He had a great plan. While the people fought the fire, his gang would rob the bank, the train, the livery, the stagecoach, and the hardware store all at the same time. Then they'd hide away in his house until it was safe to leave.
But it was not wise to challenge the Fire Huntress, for she went by her own rules. Everyone would find that out soon enough.
