Kuzma and his strong comrades

A narrative about Kuzma, a man with the strength of twenty men, and his epic journey to the rich city to marry a rich man’s daughter. During his travel to the city, Kuzma makes three friends: a man with the strength of fifty men, one with the strength of a hundred men and one with the strength of a hundred and fifty men. Together they fight the army of soldiers sent by the rich man to kill them and Kuzma succeeds.

Recording: The story was recorded in Katravozh in 1990 by Irina Nikolaeva.

    Once there lived an old man Kuzma. His name was Kuzma. He was completely alone, he had no one. He had no wife, the poor devil, he had no wife, he was all alone, he had one horse. In the summer he cut grass for the horse. He cut and cut and then sat down to smoke a pipe. He arranged a rope on his knees. He smoked his pipe. Mosquitoes bit his head, his bald head. He had no hair. He smacked his head with his hand and the mosquitoes rolled down onto the rope. He counted them, all of twenty mosquitoes. He smoked his pipe.

    “I,” he said, “am cutting grass. I’m working in the heat in the midst of so many mosquitoes. When my hand slipped, I killed all of twenty people at one time. In this country there’s a person from the rich city, he has a daughter. I’ll go there. Would it be so bad to get married? I have so much strength. I can kill a hundred people, I can finish everybody off. I have so much strength and I’m working here. What strength will I have if I live for someone?” He set off home, made some tea, drank the tea, hitched up the horse, got on and started down the path.

He has a daughter, I’m going to get married.” “What kind of strength do you have?” “I have the strength of fifty men, I’m a famous man.” “Oh, you have the strength of fifty men, I have the strength of twenty men, that almost makes one hundred.

    They were three men. They rode on, they went for a long or a short time, another path appeared. A man was striding down the large path, to the path they were riding along. “Kuzma, where are you going? There are so many of you seated.” “We’re going to get married.” “You’re going to get married, but do you have enough? Maybe you’re going in an empty sled.” Kuzma said: “I have the strength of twenty men.” “And I,” he said, “have the strength of fifty men, and he has the strength of a hundred men.” “Won’t you take me along?” “And do you have enough to help?” “I,” he said, “have the strength of one hundred fifty men.” “If that’s the way it is, great.

They purposely made themselves comfortable on the field and started to build a house on the filed. The man from the rich town heard news of them: “What kind of people have arrived and are ruining the earth of my filed?” They wrote a letter, held a meeting, took the letter, hung it on a pillar. This is what they wrote: “We are four men, four warriors, one has the strength of twenty men, the second has the strength of fifty men, the third has the strength of a hundred men and the fourth has the strength of a hundred fifty men. Such warriors have come, have come with war to the man from the rich town to take a wife.”

    Well, the man from the rich town understood and sent a soldier. “Go there and find out how these people live. Powerful people have come, they’ve ruined the filed of my people. They came there and wrote like this.” The soldier came back and said to the man of the rich town: “People such as this have arrived.” So, the next day came, the four men were talking to each other. The host Kuzma, the man with the twenty strength, prepared himself. And for the first time war came, so many men came, people came to fight. He sent fifty soldiers. These soldiers arrived.

Back on the path they reached the path of the man with five hundred strengths: “Well,” he said, “go now. Kuzma, on the day that it occurs to you, put out cups for a feast, fill it with food. If you had a grandfather, I would have the strength of your grandfather, I could help you. You did not kill mosquitoes. We really have much strength, we came to help you. To live together with a wife we could help long and short,” he said.

    Where did this man with the sleds get to? He was gone again. There was nothing. Three men remained. The three men then reached the path of the man with a hundred strengths. “Don’t stand any longer, I’ll stay. So,” he said, “like you see, Kuzma, on the day that I occur to you, put out cups for a feast. On the day put out a kettle. If you had a grandfather, I would have the strength of your grandfather. If you had another grandfather, I would have the strength of your other grandfather. I came along to help you. Live together her grandfather. I came along to help you. Live together with your wife, we found the wife. Live for a long or a short time.”

    So, he stopped talking. And he was gone. Two of them were left. They see them were left. “So,” he said, “I won’t stay either, I will go to my own land. If you had a grandfather, we found the strength that your grandfather had. If you had another grandfather, we found the strength that your other grandfather had. We came along to help you. We found you a wife. Now on the day when the thought comes to you, put out cups for a feast, put out a kettle, live well, live for a long or a short time.” So. Kuzma came home with his girl, with his wife, they are still alive today. Or maybe they have died, who knows?
