VIII. Twined-Tail

IN THE early days the Crow were moving camp, they were roaming about, seeking food. Twined-tail1 had two elder brothers -- one named Large-inside, the other named Eats-like-awolf. He never rode a horse, he had no horse, he was poor. In moving they were afoot.

'You have not scored,' they are saying." Twined-tail came and looked, he pondered. "You have plainly scored. How can they say it has not touched? You have scored," he said.
