In chapter 6 of Shiloh, Marty shares the story of when he ate an ear off of a chocolate bunny and then lied about it. We also learn that David Howard is on his way back to Tennessee. Dara Lynn wants to go up the hill with Marty because she likes to explore and she is bored. Marty doesn't want her to find Shiloh so he tells her that there are snakes up there. Marty visits with Judd Travers and later not only has to lie about that, but also about having to go see David Howard.
