Grabbing the canteens, she headed for the spring.
Pouring water from one of the canteens into his hat, he watered the horse.
She filled the canteens and started back to camp, pausing when Bordeaux emerged from the bushes below.
She surrendered the canteens to him along with a scathing stare.
They emptied all the water into four canteens and took four empty ones with them.
Each carrying two canteens, a rifle and a lantern, they started off into the long shadows of the sand dunes.
They shouldered the full canteens and, picking up their rifles, started back to the camp.
With the canteens full, they started for the cave entrance and then stopped.
