The depths of fear in a fearless man
moments after a gunfight
in which Wild Bill killed three men
from the novel / film, "The White Buffalo,"
novel and screenplay by Richard Sale (1977)
Wild Bill: Question is, which way?
Charlie: New camp forming up north. Place called Deadwood Gulch.
Wild Bill: Charlie, you know what I hate more than anything else in this world?
Charlie: More than Indians?
Wild Bill: Even more than dying.
Wild Bill: Being afraid.
Charlie: What, you mean in there? (Pointing back to the saloon where the gunfight took place.)
Wild Bill: I mean out there.
Charlie: Easterly? That's Sioux land. There's nothing out there but the Big Open and the Black Hills.
Wild Bill: And the white buffalo.
