Sin embargo, logró conservar la distancia, y en menos de un cuarto de hora se encontró en la orilla del creek. ¡Obstáculo infranqueable! El arroyo, convertido en torrente, arrastraba piedras, troncos y cepas arrancadas por la violencia de la corriente. Las aguas subían hasta el borde de las orillas. Lanzarse en medio de estos torbellinos era perderse sin ninguna probabilidad de salvación. 7 Oso gris, el más temible de la familia de los osos. 36 Sandre no se atrevía a volver atrás. Sentía al oso pisándole los talones, pronto a estrecharle con su terrible abrazo; e imposible dar a conocer su presencia a la Belle Roulotte, que apenas podía verse entre los árboles.

El viaje por el Oeste, la vuelta a Europa por la Siberia asiática, se hacía imposible por falta de pasaportes. Volver a Nueva York a través del Far West, podía hacerse evidentemente en condiciones habituales. Pero, ¿cómo franquear el océano Atlántico sin buque, y cómo tomar pasaje a bordo de ninguna embarcación, sin dinero para pagarlo? En cuanto a procurarse durante el camino la suma necesaria para semejante gasto, era poco cuerdo pensarlo. Además, ¿cuánto tiempo sería necesario para completarla?

En estas condiciones, se comprende que la Belle Roulotte se puso en estado de pasar a lo largo de las poblaciones, separándose de los pueblecillos. Si durante la marcha la caza podía bastar para la alimentación de su personal, eso les dispensaría de comprar sus géneros a los productores de este país abominable. No se crea que esta actitud era una especie de farsa de papá Cascabel. ¡No! Era natural. El filósofo que había tomado tan decididamente su partido en sus últimos infortunios y cuyo buen humor había resucitado después del robo de Sierra Nevada, se volvió triste y melancólico desde el momento en que pasaron la frontera de Nueva Bretaña.
