- As we flew, my men remembered killing those creatures several times. Scars were a real nuisance. The Warriors did the "pest control" whenever they suspected these things had gotten anywhere near the Warrior compound or shopkeepers' village.
- We stopped in a smaller set of hills and Nu-reeh hunted with me on her shoulders. She showed me how to kill and eat the flesh of the small animal she'd caught. It was tough, but not inedible and we ate it raw. Certain organs had to be avoided, they contained poison. I was made to point them out on the next one she killed.
- After lunch she spent hours in the windy hills with me. I soon knew the names of all the creatures that lived here. She told me which ones I could eat and which ones would eat me. Should I need to find shelter, I also knew where to look. It was a lesson in survival.
