While Faber is hatching his plan to go to St. Louis, Montag is caught by a Hound, a mechanical device that hunts down those who attempt to break the laws about reading. After Montag escapes the Hound and walks off the numbness that the Hound's bite caused in his leg, he goes to Faber's home. He finds out a new Hound is chasing him along with cameras and news crews.
Montag gives Faber money for the trip to St. Louis and helps him to remove Montag's scent from the house so the Hound does not invade his house. After this is done, Montag takes some of Faber's clothes to mask his own scent and escapes to the river where he floats downstream until he runs into a group of renegade book readers. He leaves with these readers to travel away from the war that has just begun.Learn more about Literature
