Epigraph
Dedication
Dedicated to the members of "Task Force Cunningham"
To the chief, as always
To the two Kathys, who helped reacquaint me with the English language
And to Sherrill and Laurel, who instructed me in the care and feeding of a heroine
First words
"Awake and about, woman!"
Quotations
The strength of twice three thousand horse
That seeks the single goal;
The line that holds the rending course,
The hate that swings the whole;
The stripped hulls, slinking through the gloom,
At gaze and gone again --
The Brides of Death that wait the groom --
The Choosers of the Slain!
