    The beginning of the tale I have is like this. Once there lived an old woman. Alone in a sacred spot in the woods. She lived in a little wooden house, no one lived with her. No human voice was to be heard, she heard nothing. She lived in a lonely spot, on a lonely piece of land, in a lonely house. An old woman. After a long or a short time she thought: “My shavings to dry my hands, to wipe off pieces of dirt, to wipe the dust, all are gone. I’ll go out to my brook, to the Khaslam brook. I’ll cut wooden shavings from pieces of sticks to wipe up dirt.” At that time there were no rags to wipe hands, only shavings. She took an axe and tied up her belt. The old woman went off to the Khaslam brook. She chopped wooden sticks and cut up as much as she could lift, as much as she could lift. She cut up rose willow.

    She carried it home, brought it into the house, and thawed it out. While she was thawing it, she scraped, scraped the sticks. She scraped like that, scraped, scraped so much, broke off shavings from the sticks and tossed them into a corner of the house, she was scraping in the middle of the house. She scraped, scraped, she scraped the next stick for shavings. Then they were finished, what she had brought, it was finished. She scraped the next stick for shaving until it got really thin, until it got narrow. She scraped the next one, dropped it and this stick for shavings broke in two. It broke in two, she wounded her hand with the knife. The woman. She cut it with the knife, blood appeared. When the damp shavings, the shavings not yet dried, and the bandage were soaked through with blood, she threw it into the corner. The blood just kept on coming, it flowed from her hand, out from under the bandage.

    She tired out, tired out, there were no more shavings, she took she took the bottom of the last bandage and tied it around. The shavings also got soaked through with blood, she unwound it and the blood stopped. No more blood came. She felt her head become heavy. She shook her head, her eyes and lay down to sleep. She fell asleep. She slept for a long or a short time and woke up, she drove sleep away. Where is such a noise coming from? Or is it a puppy yelping?–but she had no dog. Or is it the whining of some small child?

    Fine. She sat a good bit and listened. Something could be heard from under the pile of blood-soaked shavings. She stood up and went over, she took and slowly unwound it, she dug in the corner. She got closer and closer; something like the crying of a baby could be heard, a little child. And really, she took and pulled out a little boy. He was born under the pile of blood-soaked shavings. She picked him up, caressed him, kissed him, washed him with a bit of water. She wrapped him in furs and laid him down on the bed, the plank. He started to grow, a day passed and it was as if a month had passed, he had grown so much. And when a month had passed, it was as if a year had passed. The boy was growing so quickly.

    Fine. They lived together for a long or a short time, a little grandson had been found, a companion for talking, she would talk with him, she lived with him. The boy grew to be healthy and strong, he went outside, started to run around outside. “You,” she said, “don’t run far, play by the porch. Do you see anything?” “Nothing,” he said, “there are little insects on the tree.” “What kind of insects?” “Little birds and magpies,” he said. “Well,” she said, “don’t go far.

    Once the woman ran out of water. Down to the river she took an axe, a bucket, she took two buckets. She went down to the river to carry water. The old woman went to carry water. While the grandmother chopped the ice-hole, while she prepared the ice-hole and put water in the buckets, he went on further and saw, looking off to the south, some sort of black cloud or so, black shreds were sticking there. He did not look for long, a man in a black fur-coat came up to him. “Oh, grandmother’s grandchild,” he said, “hello! What are you doing?” He was too timid to speak. He stood there without saying anything. He smiled, he shifted his feet. The man in the black fur-coat who had come sat down and made an arrow from the blood of one of his legs, from the blood of his other leg he made a bow. He drew out a spinal tendon and made the bowstring.

    Where did he come from, on what path, the grandmother’s grandson does not understand the path he came on. He shot the arrow off to the side he has come from, in the direction of the southern cloud. The man who had come in a black fur-coat shot and arrow and the path he had come on, that path opened up. One could see that far off there the arrow had fallen. He had come on skis, he had skis. “Fine,” he said, “grandmother’s grandson, grandmother is climbing up, you climb up, too. If grandmother asks you, if she asks you what you saw, don’t say: I saw a man. Tell her: I was going and running with the tree insects.” So it was.

    So, he ran up and when he looked around, old grandmother was about to climb up the cliff with her buckets. He ran there, came up to her. She asked: “So, where were you, what did you see, where did you go?” “I didn’t see anything, tree insects,” he said, “were moving and I stopped to watch them.” They came home. They climbed up the banks, their water had run out. The next day or some other time came, they went to the river again for water. She took her grandchild along with her. He run along with her. While grandmother was chopping the ice-hole, while she was going for water with the buckets, he went off to the side and looked in the direction of the water’s end, some sort of motley shred was sticking there.

    He did not look for very long and a man in a motley fur-coat appeared and came up to him. He stood next to him. “Grandmother’s grandchild,” he said, “hello!” “Well, hello then,” thought the boy. He was still timid. This one, just like the man yesterday, sat down, the man in the motley fur-coat. He made a bow from the blood of one of his legs, he made an arrow from the blood of his other leg. He drew out a spinal tendon and made a string for the bow. He shot it off in the direction of the place from where he had come, towards the path and the path opened up that he had come on. Oh, he had come on skis, too, the skis were lying open. He did just the same miracle, he made an arrow from the blood of one of his legs, from the blood of his other leg he made a bow, from a spinal tendon he made a string for the bow. And he shot off the arrow just the same way, it almost reached the spot where the other’s arrow had fallen.

    “Well,” he said, “that’s the end of our task, of our miracle. Grandmother went a long ways, go catch up with her. If she asks what you saw, tell her: I didn’t see anything. I ran close by with the wood insects.” Fine. What the man told the grandmother’s grandchild to do, that is how it was. Well, fine. He looked at the bank–oh–he could see his grandmother standing at the cliff together with the buckets and bending over. He ran down there and came up to her. “Grandchild, you went off so far,” she said, “where were you, what did you see?” “I didn’t see anything, the wood insects were moving,” he said, “I stopped to watch them.” “Well, fine. You stopped to watch the wood insects.”

    They set off, went up, after a long or short time, they ran out of water again. Again grandmother and grandson went down for water. Again they came down to the water. While grandmother chopped the ice-hole, while she filled the buckets with water, he looked off towards the north and a white cloud hung in the sky. He did not look for very long, next to him fell and stood a man in a white fur-coat. A man in a white fur-coat appeared. “Grandmother’s grandchild,” he said. “Hello!” “Well, hello, hello!” So, soon the man in the white fur-coat sat down and he made an arrow from the blood of one of his legs, from the blood of his other leg he made a bow, from a spinal tendon he made a string for the bow. He shot off the arrow along the path he had come on, toward the north. It fell on the snow, an open path lay there. The arrow shot off stuck near to the snowy path. It fell, you could see that it had fallen.

    They walked for a while, came to one place and one ski of the man going in front in the white parka fell off. Grandmother's grandchild came to the same place, one of his skis fell of, the other remained. He thought: “Should I yell? Does he know? Probably he knows. Fine. I’ll keep quiet. Maybe I shouldn’t yell.” This is what the grandmother’s grandson thought. Only one of his skis remained. He went on further, the man walking ahead of him also had only one ski. He also had only one ski, they walked on. They went on further, they went a long or a short time, the man walking ahead of him had only one bucket. He also had only one bucket. Again they walked for a long or a short time, the man had only one leg. He also had only one leg. Again they went and went. While the man walking ahead of him went on, his shoulders together with the arm up to the neck, together with the heart fell off all together. The boy also went on, his head also fell off, his shoulders stayed on. The heads rolled on alone, the mere heads went on like little balls.

    Oh, visible at some place there stood a demon and lifted a hammer. When he lifted his hammer, the sun was hidden. He thought: “This is really a bad place.” While the demon lifted his hammer, the head of the man walking in front rolled under the hammer. The demon struck with the hammer. One could hear the demon saying: “Ah, the iron nowadays is really hard, before, when you hit the iron it would bend. But now when you hit it with the hammer, only sparks fly off.” Oh, the demon picked up his hammer, his head came up, and the grandmother’s grandson head rolled under the demon’s hammer. The demon hit with the hammer but the blow fell on an empty spot.

    So, the mere heads went rolling on, rolling on, the head going on in front rolled down the path. They went on, while they were going, the head of the man going in front rolled back, his head rolled back, too, on the same path. So they came again to the demon’s eyes. While striking with his hammer, the demon just said: “The iron nowadays is so hard, the old iron would bend when you hit it.” The head of the man going in front went back. And he, when the demon lifted his hammer again, also rolled backwards. The demon struck with the hammer and stayed there. The old demon just said: “Nowadays the iron is so hard. The old iron would bend when you hit it.”

    Fine. They went back, the man’s lost flesh grew back and he disappeared. He was lost. He, the grandmother’s grandson, flew along the path all alone. His flesh grew back, his head and shoulders grew back. His legs and arms became whole again, while he was walking, he had his skis on again. So he went on. The other one had disappeared, who saw where he had gone. He flew along the path. After a long or a short time he suddenly came to a clearing. In the middle of the clearing he could see a house standing. This is where the path of the man going ahead led. He flew along the path, flew along it. He came there, it was a big, wooden house. It was a wooden house, and behind the wooden house there was a larch tree. The man going ahead had hung his skis on the larch. He had hung them up, and he also took off his skis, but did not hang them up. He went and put them on the ground.

    He went up to the door of the house. In the door two watchdogs were tied up and barked and barked, squabbled. From within the house a woman’s voice could be heard, a voice like the sun. “If it’s a person we need, lick off the snow, lick off the ice. Push him inside, push him inside. If the person has nothing to do with us, we will make mincemeat of him.” Fine. He listened to the conversation. The dogs sniffed at him, they licked off the ice, they licked off the snow. They pushed him in through the door. They pushed him in. He entered the house. A woman was seated, like the sun. She was sewing or doing something and behind her some man or other was lying. He had probably gotten drowsy and was lying down. By his head, on the house, on the walls skis were standing, skis were standing, small skis. A bow was standing, arrows were standing. But the old man was sleeping. At his head a golden bird was tied and gleamed with gold. And nearby and old woman was lying. At her head a bird was tied and also gleamed with gold. He looked and looked.

    The sewing woman woke up the sleeping man. “Get up! Get up! Guests have arrived. You’re sleeping long.” Still he just did not wake up. And what did she do? The woman took the sewing knife and turning to him, thrust it into the sleeping man. Oh, did he ever wake up! He said: “I was sleeping so deeply. I see guests have come. Hello, hello, grandmother’s grandson!” He kissed the grandmother’s grandson. Fine. The man got dressed, belted up. He put on the little skis standing at his head. He took the bow, there were arrows, he took the arrows and hung them over his shoulder. The sleeping man rolled through the opening of the mouth. He rolled there. He disappeared and was gone. Those remaining behind looked, but who saw him? They looked and said nothing.

    He waited for a long or a short time and sat down. The man who had left through the opening of the woman’s mouth rolled out and brought the calf of a wild deer. He had just killed it, it was still completely fresh. He placed it on the floor, he placed it on the hide and took the hide off, the hide of the wild deer’s calf fell off. He took a pot, cut up the meat and put it into the pot. He put a woman’s knife and a man’s knife into the pot. He said to the person who came to visit: “Go, look for an eating companion, we’ll eat fresh meat.” But he just thought and thought: “There’s no one outside, where will I find myself a companion for the meal? Where will I find people?” “No, no,” he said. Not listening, he said: “Go out and bring an eating companion.”

    Just as was ordered, just as this person ordered, he did everything. He went out. It was very embarrassing, there was no companion for the meal, where should he find one? He leaned his back against the wall and stood there chewing the big finger of his mitten. He thought: “What shall I do? Where shall I find a companion for the meal?” So, while he was standing there, he felt himself being pulled up by his forelock. He glanced up. “What are you waiting for, standing for? Are you thinking?” she asked. The woman was on the roof, [talking] from the house-roof. “Well,” he said, “I’m waiting for an eating companion.” “I’m also waiting for an eating companion,” said the woman. “If you’re waiting, too,” she said, “come here, come down, let’s go home. Food is being prepared for us, let’s eat.” This made him feel good.

    So they lived together, they settled down in the house apart, they became a married couple, they became man and wife. They lived together. They became like a family. He just thought whether time remained for long or short, he thought and did not speak with the woman, he stopped talking altogether. The woman asked: “What has happened with you? Before you used to talk all the time, I think you’ve thought of something. You’ve stopped talking altogether.” Then he said: “I’ve had such a thought: before, on my land, on my land where I lived and grew I had just such water, I had just such land. I think about my land, about my water.” “Oh, if that’s what you are thinking of, I’ll tell my brothers,” she said. “Maybe they’ll send us there.

    The woman went to her brothers and said: “My husband has somehow completely stopped talking to me and is angry. I asked him and he said the following words: I also have my land, I also have land and water where I grew up. I have started to think about my land, about my water.” “Just like any person,” said the brothers, “he is a person who has a land. He has started to think about his land. He is a person who has water. Naturally, he has started to think about his water. If he has started to think like this, go. Tomorrow we will prepare you and then go. You will live on his land, on his water. When the thought comes to us, maybe we will travel to drink tea and visit.” She reported these words to her husband. He said: “They are sending us, they are letting us go.” It felt good, the grandmother’s grandson was happy.

    They spent the night. The next day noon arrived and from outside the sound of clanking hooves, the sound of horns knocking could be heard. They went outside and the full extent of the glade was filled with wild reindeer, the beginning and the end could not be seen. They ran around the house, went around the house, swarming everywhere. Only the clanking of hooves and the thumping of antlers could be heard. A caravan was being set up, sleds were being harnessed with reindeer. They harnessed up, the grandmother’s grandson harnessed three white reindeer, took down the tent and loaded it onto the sledge.

    The tent was taken down and loaded. Their things, beds, poles, coverings, the whole house was placed (on the sleds). And the people talked, the older brother said: “So, go,” he said to the grandmother’s grandson, “you will go for a long or a short time, don’t look around until your wife says so. The time will come and your wife will tell you, the time to stop will come and when you stop, look around at once, look behind you at once.”

    Tied up to the harness was a dry female reindeer, her antlers were all dried up. “Such a female reindeer is tied up to the harness.” he thought. “It will go along behind us.” He took the sled with the three reindeer, sat down and set off. They went for a long or a short time, as they went it was not permitted to look back and he did not look back at the land behind him. Suddenly his wife screamed. “Stop now, stop, the time to stop has come.” He reined in the leader, climbed down, looked around and from them to the place where before the people were standing, where the little wooden house stood, behind them the herd stretched out and the place where their house had stood was cut off. This extended herd stretched out till there and closed the glade, a black herd. His wife said: “So, this is all they have released for us. What is left over they will take back.” He said: “There’s enough for our whole life, we have so much.” He and his wife talked like this.

    His wife said: “Where are you going? Do you know the way to where you’re going?” “Who saw it, I have forgotten,” he said, “where to go.” “You,” she said, “harness your sled behind mine, tie your harness to the line. I will pull you. Come up to the women’s sleds and I will bind your eyes, so that they cannot see, so that your ears cannot hear. When the time comes, I will stop and only then will you be able to look. What is necessary you will be able to see, what is necessary you will do.” Well. And the way the woman said everything to the grandmother’s grandson, that is how he heard it all.

    His wife sat him down on the floor of the sled and tied him up. She left only a chink for breathing. Oh, he heard how she started to move off, that woman. With the team, with the herd. She went for a long or a short time, he heard, he heard only with his ears that the sleds were slipping, they were hitting against some sort of steep place, against knolls. They knocked for a long or a short time, they went on for a long or a short time, suddenly he heard that they were stopping. She said: “Stand up, get out.” He crawled out of the sled, crawled out and with a smile looked here and there, looked round to see what the land was like. He looked and as it turned out they were in the upper world, they had climbed down from the sky on a ladder, there was a ladder standing. So they climbed down the ladder to the flat earth, as if they had come to his land where he lived and his water where he lived.

    He looked for a long time or a short time, he looked here and there. He saw that there was an opening in the sky, a sky opening had remained, but there was no ladder or anything. Their herd jumped here and there around them. So it seems he would become the master. The woman said: “So, up to now I have taken you. Where your path takes you, where your mind goes to, go where you find a place to spend the night and sleep there. We will live for a long or short time with these animals that fell to us, that were given to us. The things for spending the night are here, meat for eating will appear.” “So,” he said, “fine.” He took the sled lines, harnessed up and went for a long or a short time. He found a wonderful glade to build a house in, found wonderful land to put a house on. He turned up earth from below, there was reindeer moss for the reindeer to eat, there was everything. So they spent the night.

    They built a house and the poles of the house turned out to be iron. They were iron. The floor, too, and the plank beds and everything were there, and the oven, the oven was iron. The oven, for lighting a fire. The covering of the tent was all made of reindeer skins. They went inside and made a home and around the house the reindeer all crowded round, they ran, they walked. Only the sound of their horns knocking, only the sound of clank of their hooves was to be heard. Such was life. They lived together as husband and wife.

    While they were living this way there was a town hero. While the sons of the town hero were hunting, while they were fishing, they saw the reindeer, they saw the heard of the grandmother’s grandson. “What animals are there with sharp horns on their crowns? For the whole human era there have been no such animals on this land, we haven’t seen them, where did they come from?” Then they went on and met the grandmother’s grandson who was guarding the heard. “Where did you get them from?” they asked. “Are they your animals or whose?” “Of course they’re mine,” he said, “I’m watching here to guard them. If they are not watched, they disperse and each one goes where it wants. If you watch them, all of them stay together and all of them are full and live.”

    Fine. The next day or some such time arrived and the man came. He came, they went into the forest. They walked in the forest and talked with each other. “Well,” he said, “we’re going to make a miracle, you want to search for horned animals, we’ll open a path of horned animals, we’ll make a miracle. If there’s a possibility, we’ll do it.” The grandmother’s grandson sat down, from the blood of one leg he made a bow, from the blood of the other leg he made an arrow. He pulled out a spinal tendon and the other was standing there looking at him. He was standing or sitting. He sent the arrow on ahead and a ski path appeared. This path had not been there before, fresh snow was lying on it. The path led on and he could see the arrow lying at a far distance, on the ski-track. “Now you too.”

    The other man sat down, too. From the blood of one of his leg … “Oh, it hurts, it hurts,” he screamed. “I said it was a difficult miracle,” he said. “It won’t be easy.” “Oh, oh, oh,” yelling, he did what was necessary, crying with loud cries, moaning. The other one thought: “What are you yelling for? You want to look for horned animals and I told you all of yesterday and before: this work is difficult. It’s a difficult miracle.” So, what should he do, as was necessary he pulled out a spinal tendon with a yell. He took the string of the bow, sent off an arrow, but the arrow did not reach the other’s, it fell in the middle. Fine. That’s the way it was. The path appeared, the path was visible. “So, let’s go.” Skis appeared for him, he put on the skis and set off down that path.

    They went for a long time or a short time, the other man had only one ski left. The grandmother’s grandson also had only one ski left. The other man cried out: “Friend, where are you going, only one ski is left.” “What are you yelling for?” he said, “if you have no strength left, we’ll stop. We won’t go any further, we’ll go back home.” “No, no. Let’s keep on going.” “Don’t yell any more, please. Silly person.” They went for a long or a short time. Again the grandmother’s grandson lost a ski. He yelled again: “Oh, you lost a ski again.” He also lost one ski again. They went on again, just as with the previous miracle. The grandmother’s grandson did such a miracle. They kept going for a long or a short time, he lost one leg again. The town hero’s son also lost a leg. He started screaming again.

    So, fine. That’s the way it was. Just as the miracle before, they did a miracle. Bare heads remained again. The bare heads kept on. When the grandmother’s grandson’s head rolled under the demon’s hammer, the demon could be heard. The demon had such a big hammer that when he lifted it the sun was covered. The day became dark. When the grandmother’s grandson’s head rolled there, he could hear: “The iron nowadays is so hard. If I hit it, I miss. If you hit old iron, it bends.” Oh, the town hero’s son’s head also rolled there. The demon lowered the hammer on that side. The demon hit and the hammer missed. After the hammer fell there, they rolled for a long or a short time, they rolled, the grandmother’s grandson’s head fell to the opposite side of the path. But it kept on rolling. His head. The demon was talking again, and hit the empty spot, the empty spot again. “Ah,” he said, “iron nowadays is so hard. When you hit old iron, it bends.”

    So, fine. Be that as it may, there were still things to do. They went back on the old path. Their flesh, all that had fallen off before while they were underway, came back. They became whole humans once again. The grandmother’s grandson had gotten further, he was no longer visible. What had fallen off the town hero’s son also became whole again, skis appeared, he was on skis. The grandmother’s grandson was lost to view. He must have gone far. The town hero’s son ran along the path, he went along. He did not know, where his land remained. If he did not run along this path, where would he come to? Oh, all of a sudden the town hero’s son came out to a glade. He saw that in the middle of the glade some sort of a house was standing. He went up to it, he rushed along the ski path, he arrived. Behind the house a larch tree was standing. The man arriving before him had hung his skis and bow on the larch branches. He also hung up his skis, he took them and hung them up on the larch. The grandmother’s grandson had not hung his up before, he had put them below on the ground.

    A house was standing, on both sides of the house’s door two watchdogs were tied up, they were barking and fighting. He came up to the door and in the house he could hear words of a woman, like the sun. “If we need him, lick the snow off, lick the ice off, push him into the house. But if this man just came to look at us, make mincemeat of him.” The watchdogs sniffed at him a bit of snow, licked off a bit of ice, and pushed him into the house. Oh, he entered the house, a woman like the sun was sitting, a woman was sitting. In the back a man was lying, the soles of his feet were visible. They were covered with furs and poked out. At his head skis were also standing, bows were standing, arrows were standing. He saw the hunter, it must be a hunter. An old man was sitting at the head of the bed, a golden cage was fastened, a golden bird was fastened and glittered with gold. An old woman was lying. At the head of the old woman’s bed a golden bird was sitting and also glittered with gold. He had come to a miraculous place.

    The sewing and working woman lifted up the sleeping man. “Get up, get up, a guest has come.” She tried to arouse him two or three times, the third time she turned around, took the sewing knife and pricked him with the knife. The sleeping man woke up. “Oh,” he said, “we were sleeping really deeply, guests have arrived. Greetings, son of the town hero.” “Ah, greetings, greetings.” Not a taciturn person, he answered immediately. But before, the grandmother’s grandson had not greeted, he had pondered silently and felt embarrassed. So fine, the man got up, got dressed, belted up. He hung the bow on his shoulders, took arrows. The man who had been asleep disappeared through the opening of the mouth. He looked, just gazed with his eyes. He went for a long or a short time and appeared again through the mouth of the old sleeping woman, he was dragging the calf of a wild reindeer. He threw it on the floor, skinned it on the hide, cut out the meat, put it into the kettle, put out one woman’s knife, put out one man’s knife. “So, town hero’s son, go,” he said, “look for an eating companion.”

They sat down to eat. They stayed for a long time, for a short time, what can you do, he was just a human. Outside a tent was set up, a tent was put up, and the Por woman and the town hero’s son started to live together. A companion had been found and there must also have been reindeer, who knows. And sleds, sleds with reindeer were standing there. At the place where the grandmother’s grandson’s house had stood, just such sleds were standing, but they were wooden sleds. The sleds made for the grandmother’s grandson had been made of iron.

    The son of the town hero lived for a long time or a short time with the Por woman. All at once he thought: “I, too, have land, I have water. I have begun to think of my home land, of my home water.” The Por woman only laughed: “Hee, hee, hee. If you’re thinking of your other land, I will tell my brothers.” “If you tell them, if they let us go, perhaps we would go. If we can go. That’s how it would be.” The Por woman darted off to the brothers, and transmitted the words. The brothers said again: “If you have to go, go. It is normal for a man who has land, for a man who has water, to think like that, to feel like that. Sleep the night and tomorrow we will prepare you, too and you will set off. You will wander to your land, to your water!”

    So, they slept the night, the next day morning came and they heard outside the house, outside the tent the knocking of horns and clanking of hooves, so many animals had come together. They went outside, and the clearing, whether it was large or small, had become dark, it was completely covered with a reindeer herd. They harnessed a team, took down the tent prepared the tent and tied it down. He harnessed three steer, the town hero’s son and the Por woman prepared the woman’s sled. Other sleds were also harnessed up, a sled to transport the tent. The old man again started to talk to the town hero’s son. “Later,” he said, “until your wife says so, don’t look back. If you want to be full, if you want to be clothed. But after this it’s your thought, your deed. When the time comes, your wife will tell you, glance back, look at the land.”

    So, fine. He took the sleds, the town hero’s son and saw that a dry she-deer was tied up behind the team and her hide stuck to her horns. A similar she-deer was tied to the woman’s team. Oh, the team started off, and behind the dry she-deer the herd stretched out. They went for a long or a short time, he thought, they had gone on a bit further, he gazed on the edge of that clearing and thought: “Why was I forbidden to look back, why? Why does it bother her? I’ll stop and take a look.” He jumped down from the sled, turned around, looked back: a small herd stretched out behind the she-deer, even though they were going well. While he looked back, from the place where the house stood a small herd extended to them. “Well,” said the people remaining there, “if you didn’t want to be full, you didn’t want to have weight, that’s your business, that’s your luck. This much has been cut off for you, lots or little, as much as you have, go with that.” So, what can be done? “What’s done is done,” thought the town hero’s son. “I’ve done my part.”

    They went on again. They went for a long or a short time and stopped. The Por woman said: “Where do you intend to go now? Where is your path to go on, and your land to go to?” “I,” he said, “don’t know myself. From where I set off yesterday, from where I set off, I don’t know.” “But if you don’t know, I know,” she said. “Tie your sled with rope to my team and go sit on my sled. I will tie you up and get down myself. We won’t live in the sky, we’ll live below on your land.” So, that’s how it was.

    He sat down on the woman’s sled and she tied him up. Oh, he heard it was a sort of hilly place, a sort of uneven place. They knocked about for a long time or a short time, he heard they had come to his home land. They went down, she let him down, he crawled out and looked this way and that: really, there was a ladder leading up to the sky, he saw that they had come down on this ladder. The small reindeer herd jumped around them, milled around them. The town hero’s son began to brag and said: “Oh, if I have brains, it won’t take long to produce wealth. You see, I brought horned animals, I secured horned animals.” He stood there speaking with such thoughts and such words, that’s how he bragged.

    So, fine. While he was looking around like that, while he was thinking, there was no ladder of any kind, there was nothing, there were on the flat earth. The Por woman said: “Where is your land for you to go there? Where is the water for you to go there? Go now.” “I,” he said, “do not know the road to leave here on.” “Until now I have led you, now you be the master.” So he led the small herd to his home land, to his home water. He led them a long time or a short time, his brothers arrived, he started to brag in front of them. “Oh,” he said, “if I have brains, it won’t take long to produce wealth. I have brought horned animals, have secured them.” They went into the wooden house. They went into the wooden house and started to live.

    They lived for a long time or a short time. The story leaves him, the story returns to the grandmother’s grandson. The tale will come back later to the person who had procured new wealth. The grandmother’s grandson lived together with his wife. His wife said to the grandmother’s grandson: “Now I have the following to say to you. In seven days my brothers will come to us, to our land, to be guests, to see us and see how we are living. To see how we are living, to see us, they will be visiting us.” “Let them come,” he said. “They will come and behind the house,” she said, “they will be heard. They will approach the house from two sides. You will hear them approaching from two sides in pairs. They will enter the house. Seven people will enter the house.”

    “After my brothers arrive,” she said, “drive the herd home. In your herd there is a reindeer, you have not yet seen it with your own eyes. Drive the herd home when my brothers arrive. You will see this reindeer with your eyes. Its horns are so small, as big as a forest. Such a reindeer. You feed it to them as food, for a feast. You will have a reindeer to skin.” He kissed her. As it was said, so it will be. “To catch that reindeer,” she said, “on the woman’s sled there is a lasso, the lasso ring is made of iron. You will take the iron lasso, start to throw it, and my brothers will help to tie it up. They will skin it on the boards of the house.”

    Well, fine. A week with meat passed, a week with bones passed. On the seventh day some sort of black clouds started to appear. The black clouds had not passed for long, they were sitting in the house and behind the house they could hear something fall, the earth trembled. “Oh, that must be my brothers,” said his wife, “they have arrived.” “If they have come, they have come.” And really, from two sides of the house they hey pushed open the door of the house and seven people entered the house, all of one size and stoutness, of one face and countenance. “Greetings, greetings, greetings, guests,” said the grandmother’s grandson. “So, how are you doing?” they asked. “How are we doing?” he said. “We’re alive, we’re doing fine. We have a herd, we possess a herd, there is a house, we have a house.”

    Fine. They drank tea, they ate food. The grandmother’s grandson belted up and went off into the forest to the herd to bring the herd home. He drove the herd home and really, there was just such a reindeer that he had never seen before, that his wife had told him about. It had horns like a forest hill. It could be seen from where it was coming. He must not lose sight of it. He called the people outside and lifted the cover of the woman’s sled. On the woman’s sled there was a lasso, an iron lasso. They unrolled it and cast it on the reindeer. They cast it and together with the people tied up the reindeer well. They hung it up on the boards of the house and skinned the reindeer for eating.

    They were partying for a long or a short time, with the young man, with the brother-in-law they started to play cards. They played and laughed. The oldest one, the oldest one said: “Play now, visit, be well. I will set off to the younger brother-in-law, to see how they are living. I will go to the town hero’s son and will see my brother-in-law.” He went there, the old man came to the fish-pond hero’s son, but on two sides of the house two watch dogs were tied up, they barked, they fought. It was not a tent, it was a wooden house. In the house a woman could be heard, like the sun. “If the person is necessary to us,” she said, “lick off the snow, let him into the house, lick off the ice, push him into the house. If he’s someone we don’t need, make mincemeat of him, tear him to pieces.” The watchdogs sniffed at him, took him and licked off the snow, licked off the ice, and pushed him into the house.

    Oh, he entered the house. A woman was sitting, like the sun. Behind her back some sort of man was sleeping. His feet were visible, you could tell it was a man because of the boots. A sort of old man was sitting and at his head a raven was tied, his head was all in dung, like in ink. An old woman was lying, at her head a crow was tied, her head, like ink, all in filth, the crow had soiled everything so. The town hero’s son dressed, took his bow and arrows, belted up, disappeared on the path through the old man’s mouth, vanished or went out. He went for a long or a short time and came out of the opening of the old woman’s mouth. He rolled out and brought a reindeer calf. He had just killed it, it was still as good as alive, fresh. He threw it on the floor, skinned it, cut off the meat and placed it into the washtub. He put out one woman’s knife, he put out one man’s knife. He said to the guest who had come: “Go, search for an eating companion,” said the town hero’s son.

He was angry, as angry as could be. “Once you came to us to search for an eating companion, the grandmother’s grandson came to us to search for an eating companion,” he said. “You came to search for an eating companion. We entertained you, fed you, gave you things, a herd. Why do you mock us? So, enough, you haven’t seen me yet, you don’t know me yet. Why do you mock us? So, enough, you haven’t seen me yet, you don’t know me enough, you haven’t seen me yet, you don’t know me yet!” So, fine. He became angry and opened their door, went out and slammed it. “Wait,” he said, “soon we will come to visit you. And not one person will come, many people will come. There will be seven of us, we will all come to visit you.” He left with these words. He was very angry. He did not look for an eating companion, he had been mocked. He thought: that was necessary.

    So, he arrived at the house of his brother-in-law, the grandmother’s grandson. The people were still playing, the people were still visiting. He was so angry, he went to the people, the brothers, the brother-in-law, the grandmother’s grandson, and said, he came and said, he said to his sister: “We will go now, the town hero’s son has made me so angry. Like when he came to us, that’s how he mocked me. They are mocking us. Is that why we came? Did we perhaps come to find an eating companion? We came to visit you, to see how you were living on the land. Let’s go now and in seven days we’ll come. We’ll come,” he said to his brother-in-law, the grandmother’s grandson, “on your wife’s sled in the gear there is an iron rope. Encircle the house with this iron rope and put up strong posts, tie up the house with the rope. We will come to visit. We will visit on the land of the town hero’s son. Prepare firewood for a week in your house. Prepare food for a week in your house. Meat, enough for a week, warmth for a week. Don’t go outside. We will do something, we will be the hosts.” So it was.
