"Time became a stilled heart-beat. Stealthy, climbing sounds. Finn's body drew taught, heaved up onto supporting palms. Whisperings, the movement of the top of a small birch-tree here and there whose trunk was invisible hands gripped. The hunters in their primordial humour were closing in. Life had come for him." Neil Gunn - The Silver Darlings
