Text Appearing Before Image: the valley of Tehkemeek where weembarked for our return journey toGore Bay and as we gazed back overthe scenic grandeur of the landscapewe were leaving, we thought of Adiwis-kosh, when as a boy he had ranged theforest in seaiTh of scpiirrels and birds,with his tiny bow and arrow, andlater in life as he strode into vigorous manhood, he had scaled the moun-tain side in pursuit of caribou or dash-ed through wild and tumultuous ra-pids in his bark canoe. These hauntsthat knew him in life would now knowhim no more. We carried a magnificent moosehead home, and today it hangs onthe wall in our den, with spreadingantlers that cast a shadow from wallto wall, and after the business worriesof the day are over, Godfrey and I arewont to fill our pipes and through thewreaths of smoke gaze at the head ofthis Monarch of the northern woodsfor the possession of which as a giftto his while brothers, the greatAdiwiskosh met his sad and untimelydeath.
