The second day two of their sheep plunged into a morass, where they and their burdens were lost; two more died of fatigue a few days after; seven or eight perished with hunger in a desert; and others subsequently fell down precipices.
На другой день два барана увязли в болоте и погибли со всем грузом; два других околели от усталости несколько дней спустя; семь или восемь подохли от голода в пустыне; несколько баранов сорвалось в пропасть.

It would not do to be found in the desert under these circumstances: firing wildly into the cactus from a car full of drugs.

A subject, this, fertile in good resolutions, which impelled him to renounce all earthly goods, and dwell on that fond dream of a desert life, beneath the solitary wealth and luxury of a vast blue sky.
То была благодатная почва для добрых намерений, ибо эта мысль приводила его к отказу от всех благ земных и возвращала к часто лелеемой им мечте о житии в пустыне, единственным богатством которой было бы безбрежное синее небо.

Well, last year, about St.Peter's day, I went again to that desert--the Lord led me there--and I saw standing in his cell that very thing, a microscope; he had ordered it for a great sum of money from abroad.
Ну так вот, прошлого лета, в Петровки, зашел я опять в ту пустынь - привел господь - и вижу, в келии его стоит эта самая вещь - микроскоп, - за большие деньги из-за границы выписал.

And certainly, though Valetka's extreme thinness was a shock even to an indifferent observer, he still lived and had a long life; and in spite of his pitiable position he was not even once lost, and never showed an inclination to desert his master.
И действительно: хотя Валетка поражал даже равнодушного прохожего своей чрезмерной худобой, но жил, и долго жил; даже, несмотря на свое бедственное положенье, ни разу не пропадал и не изъявлял желанья покинуть своего хозяина.

With a roar and a grunt the Biharin rose to his feet and plunged forward toward the desert, his driver following with shouts and lamentation.
Бишарин с глухим ревом вскочил и стрелой помчался в пустыню. Погонщик с криком и проклятиями кинулся за ним.
