Related in alternating chapters, the first tale centres on the Englishman’s boy, a young man who ends up in a posse of cowboys chasing Indians suspected of horse stealing.

In his turn, the Englishman tells Santiago that all he needs is found in books; but the Englishman finds nothing important in trying to listen to the desert or by searching for omens.
