Three days later they are taken from the dark cell into the sunlight and put on a flatbed truck with  three guards. They are heading back south to Saltillo. They stop for a break, and the captain has  ordered a guard to take Blevins away from the other two. Before he goes, Blevins takes off one boot  and gives John Grady his money. The captain and the charro take him into the trees and after "a  long time" John Grady and Rawlins hear a pistol shot. In Saltillo the truck makes various stops before they arrive at the big prison. While waiting in a room,  John Grady tells the captain he didn't have to kill Blevins. The captain tells him, "A man does not  change his mind." They are locked in a cell and sleep on iron bunks with greasy mattresses. After  breakfast in the morning, they are turned loose into a common yard where they have to fight all day.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
