Kallik's Point of View
- The chapter begins with a storm raging outside Kallik's BirthDen. Nisa is telling a story to her cubs, Kallik and Taqqiq. She is telling the Legend of Silaluk, where Silaluk is running from the three hunters,Robin, Chickadee and Moosebird. She runs as fast as she can but the hunters catch up to her, embedding their spears into her. Her blood falls onto the ground, turning the leaves red and gold. Silaluk's skeleton lies there for the whole of snow-sky, but then she resurrects, and the cycle begins all over again.
- Kallik is scared, and Taqqiq teases her. Nisa asks why she is scared, and Kallik replies that the story reminds her that burn-sky will soon be here and they'll starve. Nisa comforts her, telling her that they will go to land, and she tells her about grass and berries that they will eat. Taqqiq asks if berries are as good as seals, and Nisa says that they aren't but they will keep them alive.
- This is Kallik's first chapter in the Seekers books.
