Abraham's Sacrifice

Excerpt from Abraham's Sacrifice The sun was about to set, and twilight was creeping slowly over the plain. Far away to the north the horizon was bounded by a number of small hills, behind which night seemed to lie in ambush, as if prepared at any moment to envelop everything in its dark, impenetrable veil. Over the weary veldt, which seemed equally without beginning and without end, came a troop of mounted dragoons. There were just fifteen of them; and although all urged and spurred their horses to the uttermost, the animals went only at a foot-pace, their heads drooping to the ground. Two officers, neither of whom was more than thirty years old, rode a few yards in advance of the men, in whose somewhat disordered ranks a sullen silence prevailed. The men's bearing showed that they were tired out, and their faces indicated that bitter vexation was at work within their breasts. They had now had a spell of three days in the saddle, and the annoying part of it was that their reconnoitring expedition had been entirely without result.
