Latour and Jacinto set out at four in the morning. By afternoon, the travelers are in the midst of a  blizzard. Jacinto leads Latour to a cave. Jacinto tells the bishop that the cave is a secret ceremonial  place and that the bishop is to forget about it after they leave. Latour promises to do so. Beneath the  cave is an underground river that makes a tremendous noise. The next morning, the mules are gone. The pair walk through the snow to a cabin, where they rent  mules. They arrive that evening to find Vaillant in better health. Vaillant tells them that Kit Carson had  stopped to help him. Latour takes Vaillant back to Santa Fe. Latour keeps his promise to never speak about the cave, but he remembers it with a sense of  revulsion. Latour makes a point of meeting the white trader Zeb Orchard to ask about the customs of  the Pecos Indians. Orchard tells Latour that the Indians keep a fire perpetually burning in a clay oven

    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.
