They were so drunk Mr. Grimes and Francis escaped, but the Natives came looking for them the next day.
In the story the protaganist is Mr. Grimes. He helps Native Americans and save people who are captured. Just like he saved Francis from those Comanche Indians. He protects people who need help. The antogonist are the Comanche Indians. They capture people like they did to Francis. Also they are harmful like when they beat up Francis. They also steal from trading posts and other people.
The mood of the story can be
alot of diffrent
things. You could get a happy feeling, sad, or even a scared feeling at times. The tone of the story is sad and not really happy. It is sad because Francis is took from his parents and Mr. Grimes dies. So it is not really a happy story.
