In this vessel, carved from a single tree, seventeen Indians at one time traveled with us. With all their baggage added to ours and everyone aboard, the vast canoe still looked rather empty.

Whatever it is, the young mothers read and obey, untrusting of their innate ability, untrusting of the baby's "motives" in giving the still perfectly clear signals.
