Example text

They were remembered - though there may have been some confusion here with what occurred later - becauseone of the hunters claimed that the wolves had been accompanied by another animal; he had only caught a glimpse of it and could not give it a name, but what he had seen fq some reason the man was unwilling to describe. After the hunt was over the tribes teturned to their villages to divide up the spoils. Later the women had brought the men rice beer and then left them to feast,drink, alk, sing and dance their way through the night; but discussion soon furned from hunting to politics and the mood ofgaiety reverted to one ofapprehension over the cruel edict that would send them away as sacrificesto the 'great village of blood'.
