The buss driver dropped them off too early far from the ranch.
The bus driver had told them the ranch was, "jes' a little stretch down the highway." It was actually more than 4 miles away.
From the text;
"Bus driver give us a bum steer," he said. "We hadda walk ten miles. Says we was here when we wasn't. We couldn't get no rides in the morning."
