meaning of words "drive" and "draw" in the given passage Rosemary loved the roundups except for one thing – she secretly rooted for the cattle. She thought they were kind, wise animals who, in their hearts, knew that you were leading to their death, which was why their lowing had such a piteous tone. I suspected that from time to time, she’d helped the odd steer escape. One day, well into the drive, Jim noticed a stray siding up a draw and sent Rosemary after it. Rosemary rode back out all innocent-eyed, declaring that she couldn’t find the steer. Would be please explain what the words drive and draw mean in the context to the passage above? Thanks!Correction: Would you please explain what the words drive and draw mean in the context of the passage above? Thanks!

Drive = It is the descriptive word used by cattle ranchers when they are taking their cattle from A to B, or rounding up the cattle to be sent to market. Draw = if have no idea what this is perhaps it is a creek.

A draw is a type of terrain. It's hard for me to explain. Check out this link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Draw_%28terrain%29
