To complete his transformation, he is now known as ‘Charles.” Charles is now ready to leave the ranch and find himself a wife.”
“Are you ready to leave?” asked Jacob, “Yes sir, I’m ready and I am looking forward to finding me a good wife.” “Well,” replied Zac, “Make sure you get a good one like Elizabeth and not one like Mary.” Jacob cut in, “No, you want a young woman, like Mary, and not an old one like Elizabeth.” Charles laughed and was grateful for the light banter between these two good men. He hoped he could find friends as true as they were to each other.
In Cookie’s journey to California in search for a wife, he finds there is a higher power that is directing his path in life. In Southern California he finds a young man stripped of everything but his underclothing. He has been beaten, robbed and severely wounded and left for dead.
