Definition
to trade things of value without involving money
  • Reverend Pike spoke in a real loud voice, but I didn't catch a word—-except the first two, and three months later when Denver was ready for solid food and they let me out for good, I went and got you a gravestone, but I didn't have money enough for the carving so I exchanged (bartered, you might say) what I did have and I'm sorry to this day I never thought to ask him for the whole thing: all I heard of what Reverend Pike said.
