Eli's family and friends are returning to Tulsa after being
away from home a month.
The Blasingames are traveling with them, with plans to
leave from Tulsa on their trip back to Abilene, Texas.
They come upon a work crew along the railroad right-of-way
and Eli meets a man who will bring a whole new way of life,
not only to him and his family, but to others in the territory.
On the 20th of May, the Blasingame brothers and their wives
leave for Abilene. Their daughters are staying to help fence
their new lands.
