The Boy and the Wolves


Start of Story

And it happened one day that his big brother was fishing in his canoe near the shore and he heard the voice of a child singing in the Indian tone .
My brother, my brother, I am becoming a wolf,
I am becoming a wolf.
And when he had so sung, he howled as wolves howl. Then the heart of the elder sank and he hastened toward him crying:
Brother, little brother, come to me.
but he being half a wolf only continued his song. And the louder the older called to him:
Brother, little brother, come to me.
the swifter his little brother ran after the wolves, and heavier grew his skin til, with a long howl, he vanished into the depths of the forest. So with shame and anguish in his soul, the older brother went back to his village and with his sister, mourned the little boy and the broken promise til the end of his life.
