Trivia

Cobb refers to the area as the "staked plains". This is a reference to the expedition of Francisco Coronado in 1541. Faced with an endless sea of grass and concerns about finding their way back, Coronado had his men plant a series of tall wooden stakes in the ground. In the decades that followed travelers would see the remnant of these stakes, which gave the region the name "Llano Estacado", or staked plains. See more »

Goofs

At the end of this episode the men can be seen around several camp fires. There is not now, nor has there ever been, enough burnable things in the Jornada del Muerto to have even one camp fire, let alone several. See more »

Quotes

Caleb Cobb: I'm a seaman. I never expected to die in the middle of the desert. I ought to be on my ship. What in hell am I doing here?
