1: The Trail of the Meat
spruce forest frowned on either side the frozen waterway.
The trees had been stripped by a recent wind of their white
covering of frost, and they seemed to lean towards each other,
black and ominous, in the fading light. A vast silence reigned
over the land. The land itself was a desolation, lifeless,
without movement, so lone and cold that the spirit of it was
not even that of sadness. There was a hint in it of laughter,
but of a laughter more terrible than any sadnessa laughter
that was mirthless as the smile of the sphinx, a laughter
cold as the frost and partaking of the grimness of infallibility.
It was the masterful and incommunicable wisdom of eternity
laughing at the futility of life and the effort of life. It
was the Wild, the savage, frozen-hearted Northland Wild.
there was life, abroad in the land and defiant. Down the frozen
waterway toiled a string of wolfish dogs. Their bristly fur
was rimed with frost. Their breath froze in the air as it
left their mouths, spouting forth in spumes of vapour that
settled upon the hair of their bodies and formed into crystals
of frost. Leather harness was on the dogs, and leather traces
attached them to a sled which dragged along behind. The sled
was without runners. It was made of stout birch-bark, and
its full surface rested on the snow. The front end of the
sled was turned up, like a scroll, in order to force down
and under the bore of soft snow that surged like a wave before
it. On the sled, securely lashed, was a long and narrow oblong
box. There were other things on the sledblankets, an
axe, and a coffee-pot and frying-pan; but prominent, occupying
most of the space, was the long and narrow oblong box.
antiqued paper is delicately laced with a subtle hint of gold
in the creases creating an almost magical look. (Although
its difficult to catch with a camera, you can see in
the image below how the shimmering is caught in the light)
