Hope Is An Animal - Cavemen Speak - The Blind Man Woke Earlier (CD)

In spite of this, Maurice is often gripped by bleak periods of depression, during which Isabel struggles in her resolve not to succumb to the same depression. Isabel fights it by inviting friends to visit, but both she and her husband find they prefer being by themselves. Isabel is surprised when Maurice agrees to have Bertie for a visit.

Before Maurice lost his sight, he and Bertie did not get along at all. So deep was Maurice's seemingly inexplicable resentment of Bertie that before Maurice's second tour fighting in France, Isabel broke off her friendship with Bertie entirely. It has been two years since they last spoke or wrote to one another. However, this period of silence ends when Isabel receives a note from Bertie unexpectedly. In the note, he asks Isabel if he should put up a "tombstone to their dead friendship," expressing his genuine sorrow over her husband's malady.

After mentioning the note to Maurice in a relatively off-hand manner and without expecting a positive reply from her husband, Maurice raises the idea that Bertie should come to visit. Therefore, Bertie will arrive that night. Related summaries: books by D. After Dutch and four others travel back from GuarmaArthur and Sadie Adler scout the penitentiary using a hot air balloon and later manage to bust John out of prisonbefore returning him to the camp in Beaver Hollow.

However, Dutch berates Arthur and Sadie for getting John back earlier than intended, even though the law began making plans to have John hanged. Dutch begins to develop paranoia, and is convinced that John is a traitor although this can partly be attributed to Micah manipulating him.

With tensions in the gang at an all-time high, some other members of the gang such as Bill also suspect that John is a turncoat, and distrust him as a result. During this operation, Arthur convinces John that he and his family should run away from the crumbling gang, once they have enough money. The two begin making plans, and John informs Arthur that Abigail knows where the gang's money stash is.

The feeling that they need to get out is escalated even more as Dutch descends into madness, in addition to becoming increasingly influenced and corrupted by Micah, who acts as his new right hand man.

John is later present with the rest of the Van der Linde gang during the battle against the U. Army at the oil fieldsalthough he plays a minimal part in it.

John takes part in the final robbery of the Van der Linde gang, which involves robbing army payroll from a train. When uncoupling a burning train carriage, John gets shot in the shoulder by a train guard and falls off the train. Dutch goes back to save him, but ultimately decides to leave John to die. After the robbery, John is presumed dead by the rest of the gang. When rescuing Abigail who had been captured by PinkertonsArthur and Sadie learn from Agent Milton that Micah had betrayed the gang, having given information to the Pinkertons since the gang's return from Guarma.

Arthur sends Abigail and Sadie to safety at Copperhead Landing while he goes to camp in order to confront Micah. During a stand-off between Micah and Arthur about the former being a traitor, John makes a shock return, still injured, claiming that Dutch left him to die.

John and Susan Grimshaw side with Arthur, while the rest of the gang sides with Micah. Dutch then draws his revolvers and demands to know who is "with" him, and who is "betraying" him, ultimately leading to the gang uniting behind him and against Arthur and John, holding the two at gunpoint. Before the pair can be gunned down by the others, the standoff Hope Is An Animal - Cavemen Speak - The Blind Man Woke Earlier (CD) interrupted by a Pinkerton assault on the camp, causing the gang to flee.

John and Arthur flee the area using the caves underneath the camp. Once they get out of the caves and try to escape through the forest, Arthur tells John that Micah was the rat and that his family are safe at Copperhead Landing. They are then forced to run while being pursued by Dutch, Micah and the others, declaring that the pair are traitors. After John and Arthur outrun their pursuers, their horses are shot from under them. It becomes clear that the whole area has been surrounded by Pinkertons and their chances of getting out alive are slim, and Arthur has to make a decision.

The following set of events will depend on the player's choice:. Either way, John manages to escape and reunite with his family along with Sadie and Tilly at Copperhead Landing, while Arthur dies, either from his Tuberculosis or from being killed by Micah. John and his family planned to live an honest life after leaving the gang. Sadie and John also vowed one day to kill Micah for his treachery, should they ever find him. Years after the gang disbanded, inthe Marston family have an incident at Roanoke Ridge which involved John shooting someone, and head to a destination unknown.

They eventually arrive in Strawberry to try their luck there where Abigail and Jack land a job in the town clinic and, under the pseudonym "Jim Milton", John temporarily gets a job working for the general store, delivering goods to David Geddes at Pronghorn Ranch. John arrives at the ranch on time and manages to stop the Laramie Gang from harassing the ranch. After this, John receives work as a ranch hand for the Geddes. His reunion with Abigail starts uneasy friction after she receives news of John's actions prior to their arrival.

Nevertheless, Abigail and John manage to get by with their newfound life. John helps Mr. Geddes and ranch foreman Tom Dickens with more ranch work such as teaching the David Geddes' younger son named Duncan Geddes how to tame and ride a horse and build fences around the ranch.

During these times, John briefly connects with Jack, teaching him how to ride a pony and retrieving mail from Strawberry. However, their journey in collecting a package at the post office goes wrong, due to John and Jack being followed by three men connected to the incident back at Roanoke Ridge. John is forced to kill them, which triggers Jack's anxiety. After they return to their ranch, Abigail becomes increasingly worried after seeing Jack anxious and John failing his promise to her.

This concern ignites after the Laramie attack the Pronghorn Ranch, and steal cattle. John and the ranch hands head to Hanging Dog Ranch where they successfully fight the gang and retrieve the cattle. John also kills their leader for mocking him. The event angers Abigail and she leaves John quietly the next morning. John continues to work at the ranch and after some time, Marston asks Mr.

Geddes to put good faith on his name so that he can borrow loans from the bank and buy a plot of land. John attempts to buy Beecher's Hope to convince Abigail he's changed, with the intention of turning it into a ranch.

John successfully buys Beecher's Hope after clearing away squatters living there. He reunites with Uncle in Blackwater and Charles in Saint Denis, who help Marston build his ranch, as well as Sadie in Valentine, who provides him with various bounty hunting jobs to pay off his bank loans. Abigail and Jack head back to John after receiving a letter from him.

John spends more time with his family, such as fishing with Jack Hope Is An Animal - Cavemen Speak - The Blind Man Woke Earlier (CD) Rufusand going to Blackwater with Abigail. During their trip to town, John proposes to Abigail on the lake. Eventually, Marston comes across information leading to Micah's location. He, Sadie, and Charles go despite Abigail's pleas not to. In order to reach their nemesis, the trio track down Cleet in Strawberry, who reveals that Micah and his gang are at Mount Hagen.

The player can then decide whether to hang Cleet or spare him, though the latter results in Sadie killing him instead. The three journey to Mount Hagen, where Charles and Sadie both sustain injuries; with Charles getting shot in the shoulder by a sniper and Sadie having been stabbed in the abdomen during a scuffle with one of Micah's henchmen, John is forced to continue on without them.

He soon confronts and kills Joebefore eventually finding Micah. A shootout ensues between the two and they end up in a deadlock, which ends when a wounded Sadie appears and holds Micah at gunpoint. However, Dutch makes a sudden appearance, emerging from a cabin with his revolvers drawn, resulting in Sadie being subdued by Micah and held hostage.

After an exchange of words between the three, Dutch eventually shoots Micah in the chest, mortally wounding him and freeing Sadie. Enraged, Micah then tries to shoot Dutch and John in a last-ditch effort, but John outdraws Micah and shoots him numerous times, killing him.

Dutch then takes his leave without saying a word, ignoring John's attempt to thank him. Marston subsequently finds the Blackwater ferry robbery money stash and returns to the ranch with Charles and Sadie. Afterwards, with his mortgage having been paid off thanks to the money stash, John formally marries Abigail, with both looking forward to living a new life on their ranch with Jack. Sadie and Charles leave Beecher's Hope and the Marston family on good terms.

Edgar Ross, the newly appointed head of the Bureau of Investigation catches wind of the events on Mount Hagen and goes to investigate, finding nothing but Micah's frozen corpse and no trace of the missing Blackwater money.

Alongside his new subordinate, Archer Fordhamthey begin a manhunt for the culprit, questioning various people until they trace the murder to John's location at Beecher's Hope. John continues working on his ranch with his family for the next few years, unaware that his revenge on Micah meant the Bureau knew exactly who he was and where to find him.

Four years later inthe old American West is dying. Encroaching technological advances such as railroads, telegram offices, and stronger law enforcement begin to integrate themselves into western society.

The federal government wants the Bureau of Investigation to aid in the process of civilizing the west by ridding the region of all of the savage gangs running wild and unchallenged, especially that of Bill Williamson and Dutch van der Linde.

Not wanting to make martyrs out of them, Ross decides to use an ex-associate of Williamson's that the Bureau had been watching to hunt him down: former outlaw John Marston.

By kidnapping John's wife and son, Ross forces him to comply. Thus, John is forced to roam the frontier once again to protect his family. John arrives in Blackwater on the ferry Morningstar and is escorted by Edgar Ross and Archer Fordham through town to be sent off by train to Armadillo. Once there, John finds a guide named Jake hired by the local marshal in the saloon.

The talkative guide questions Marston about his motives but gets no answers in return. He leads John to the walls of Fort Mercerthe main hideout of the Williamson gang. In confronting his old friend, Marston tries to reason with Williamson in giving up peacefully, but Williamson taunts John for his vocabulary, proudly proclaiming that he is now in charge of his own gang. John reaches for his revolver but gets shot in his lower right torso by one of Bill Williamson's men.

After suffering through the night and eventually passing out on the side of the road, Bonnie MacFarlane and her ranch hand Amos find John and take him to Nathaniel Johnston 's doctor office in Armadillo. After treating his wounds, Bonnie provides John with lodgingfood, and drink, on condition he helps her around the ranch. However, Williamson finds out that John has survived and is staying at the MacFarlane Ranch, and orders his gang to set the barn on fire. John rescues the trapped horses and Bonnie promises to sell him some cattle when he settles on his ranch again.

After assisting U. Marshal Leigh Johnson with various jobs in and around Armadillo, John and the Marshal begin to plan an assault on the fort.

To gather a posse and the necessary resources to conduct the attack, John works with snake oil salesman Nigel West Dickens and, through him, Irish and Seth Briars. However, their plans are temporarily delayed when Bonnie MacFarlane is kidnapped, to which John volunteers to help Marshal Johnson save her from being hanged. West Dickens gives them a lecture about what is inside his "miracle" wagon, before rapping sharply on the side of the wagon to signal John, who shows himself and kills most of the outlaws while assaulting the fort.

He is forced to work for them to gain information on Williamson and Escuella. At the same time, John encounters the aging famed gunslinger Landon Ricketts who teaches him new gun fighting skills and commits raids on the Mexican Army. Marston also aids Abraham Reyes and Luisa Fortuna - two lover revolutionaries working to overthrow Allende and their president, General Sanchezwith numerous revolutionary attacks. He attempts to extract any information possible from both Allende and Reyes regarding the whereabouts of Williamson and Escuella.

However, Allende, aware of John's loyalties, betrays John and has his men attempt to kill him. However, Reyes and his rebels arrive in time and rescue John before he is executed. John kills Captain Espinoza in the ensuing battle and sides with Reyes in the revolution. Marston confronts Javier and holds him at gunpoint, although Javier manages to escape. Marston pursues him, and Javier is either killed or captured by John in the ensuing struggle. Eventually, the rebels lead an attack on Allende's villa.

In the midst of the bloodshed, Luisa is gunned down by Allende's men, although she is avenged when Raul Zubieta and two of his soldiers are killed by John in retaliation. As the rebels storm the villa, Allende and Williamson, who was also seeking protection from the Army, make their escape. With Williamson dead, John is required to head back to Blackwater in America to meet with agents Ross and Fordham once again.

Though Marston's business with Williamson and Escuella is over, Ross tells him that he still needs to subdue Dutch van der Linde, the former leader of the Van der Linde gang, if he wishes to get his family back. John, along with Ross, Fordham and other Bureau Agents engage in several skirmishes with Dutch and his gang of Natives across West Elizabethbut fail to capture or kill Van der Linde. He confronts Dutch himself, who warns John that the government will find a new "monster" to justify their pay.

Rather than dying or being taken captive by John, Dutch chooses to commit suicide by falling from a cliff. After the raid, John is released by the government and finally reunites with his family at their ranch in Beecher's Hope.

He settles down with his wife Abigail and sixteen-year-old son Jackalong with old family friend Uncleand attempts to return to a crime-free life as a farmer and rancher with his family. In order to get the ranch going, he returns to MacFarlane's Ranch to purchase some cattle, breaks some horses with Uncle, and goes out hunting with Jack, even saving him from a bear in one instance.

However, as per Dutch's warning, Edgar Ross double-crosses John. Marshalslaunch an attack on the Marston ranch. Uncle is killed during the shootout, while John and his son continue holding off the attackers.

John tells Abigail and Jack to run while he stays behind in the barn to defend them. Knowing that the chances of survival for John are slim, Abigail and John seal their love with a passionate kiss before the former rides off. In the end, John realizes that the only way to save his family from the government's crosshairs is to lay down his life. John sacrifices himself in a last stand against Ross and his men. After exiting the barn and standing before a large firing squad, he draws his pistol and takes out as many men as he can until they open fire on him.

Still standing, breathing harshly and with multiple bullet wounds on his body, he drops his revolver, falls to his knees and then eventually collapses back to the ground. As Ross watches Marston dying, he callously lights a cigar, satisfied with knowing that the final member of the Van der Linde gang is dead, before departing with his men.

It is mid-October now, and the weather is growing cold up here in the New Hampshire hills, but it will not succeed in freezing me out of these white garments, for here the neighbors are few, and it is only of crowds that I am afraid.
