For the ground is well drained and there is a deep, shady valley on both sides of it, and a river in it, not rocky, but very easy for cattle to enter. The water is abundant and clear, for its source is near, and in summer there is always a wind blowing through the valley. The neighbouring woods are pleasant and well watered, very free from gadflies and other cattle pests. There are many beautiful meadows shaded by lofty and graceful trees, untouched and full of rich grass throughout the summer, so that the beasts need not wander far. For these reasons it had been their habit to settle their animals here ; and in their altered circumstances they remained in their huts, till they could get employment or work, supporting themselves entirely from the small plot which they had made near the fold. This supplied their needs sufficiently, for it had a quantity of manure. Having no cattle to occupy them, they took to hunting, by themselves or with dogs. For two of the dogs, which had gone off with the cattle, not seeing their masters, after some time left the animals and returned to the spot. At first these dogs went with them, as though for their old employment, and whenever they saw wolves they chased them for a distance, but paid no attention to boars or deer.
WHe explains how the dogs gradually took to hunting. INTER came and our fathers had found no work, even when they went down to the city or the villages.

The tracks are more visible, for they show on the wet soil, and the snow makes them very conspicuous, so that the hunter has no difficulties. They act as a path leading to the animals, which are more timid at that season and do not run away. One can even catch hares and roe-deer in their haunts.
