Sample text

Next day I went to look over my snares. All of a sudden, I saw a lot of snow and a big bear track on my trail. I 48 tracked it back. Here just where I set one of my snares was the bear in his den. I had walked all over the top of his den with my snowshoes on. After it was quiet, the bear got out and left. What a fright that would have been for me, if he had got out while I was there. Anyway, I went straight home and told Grandpa about it. He went and tracked the bear and killed it. Trapping and hunting provided us with our necessities of life.

Believe me, I was happy. It was the first deer I ever killed. We paddled home with our trophy. As we arrived home, Grandpa was there. I was so excited I could hardly wait to tell him. " My great-grandmother said to me, "Now that you have killed the deer, you skin it yourself, cut up the meat and hang it over the open fire to smoke it. " I did just what she told me to do. When the hide was finished being tanned and smoked, Great-grandma showed me how to cut out moccasins and mitts and how to sew them.

All those things have to be remembered. Most things you use are made out of the raw material supplied by nature. Living in the wilderness means nothing is made by factory. Everything is made by handwork and made out of the woods. This is a lot of hard work, but can be a very healthy life. The woods were clean, the lakes and rivers were so clean you could drink water anywhere, not like today. All Indians made a good living in the woods until their lives were changed by the white man. Indians never harmed their country or never wasted any animals.
