BLURB

‘I have to take the creek tonight’ - I told the boatman. ‘I want to see the wonders of the land below. I have never left the peak, although I have lived here for centuries, but I have heard about the monstrous beasts, giants and gorgeous elves that live in the evergreen woods. Are the stories true? I suppose they heard the same about us, mountaineers who rule the wind and light, thunders and the air.’ ‘Men and women live there, my friend’ - said the boatman smiling. ‘Are we their gods?’ - I asked.  He looked at me. ‘We must not go under the moonlight, he said, the water turns into honey-colored glue that never lets you wonder again. Only when the sun comes up can we try to leave. No one has ever come back from there, master. Are you sure it is the right way?’ ‘What can we lose?’ I shook his shoulder. ‘Take me there before we all turn into butterflies.’ [Andras Gal]
