Two old-timers lock horns in this lean, affecting short story set in 1923 and permeated with nostalgia for the Old West.

Years later on a stopover from Oklahoma, Starlight and his party of eight Comanche men demand that Bird donate his largest bull, Shakespeare, for a sacrifice. What is unspoken between the two protagonists--mutual respect, a nascent fraternal bond--is at least as important as what is made explicit
