In chapters 12-13 henrys conversation before the shots hit him
Answers 2Add Yours
The fleeing men run around him, not seeing him. Guns fire from behind them. They ask questions, mostly about where roads lie. Henry finally clutches a man as he runs by. He can only stammer out the word "why." The man who he stopped screams, "Let go me! Let go me!" When Henry does not, the man hits him on the head with his rifle butt and runs away.
Henry never really gets shot in these chapters.
