Chapter 10 ~ The Guardian of the Gate
When Lion woke, the group continued their journey down the yellow brick road toward the Emerald City. The forest turned to a beautiful countryside. People watched as they walked, but no one spoke to them. Once the group grew tired and hungry, they stopped at a farmhouse. They were greeted warmly and given a delicious meal. When they told the farmer’s wife they were going to see Oz, she told them he took on many forms, so no one knew what he looked like. The group spent the night in the farmhouse, then headed toward Emerald City the next morning. They arrived at the city’s wall. Dorothy rang a bell, and the group was allowed entrance. They were given spectacles, so the city’s glow would not blind them.
