In the first chapter Bartok and the other men in the village must hunt to feed their family. Last year hunting was bad in the south so Bartok went north. Black Star is Bright Dawns' favorite dog and is Bartoks' least favorite. Bright Dawn and Black Star have a strange connection. In the village women aren't supposed to go hunting but Bartok makes an exception for Bright Dawn.(PS)

On the tenth day of november the sun did not rised. The sea froze up and there was nbo more waves. All the exept the ravens flew south for the winter and we would not see them again till spring.This is the best time to hunt in the cyake made of deer skin.(BW)
