Excerpt from A Story of Primitive Love

They were doing their work very badly. They got the rope around his neck, and tied his wrists with moose-bush withes, but again he fell, sprawling, turning, twisting over the leaves, tearing up everything around him like a trapped panther.

He got the rope away from them; he clung to it with bleeding fists, he set his white teeth in it, until the jute strands relaxed, uh ravelled, and snapped, gnawed-through by his white teeth.

Twice Tully struck him with a gum hook. The dull blows fell on flesh rigid as st'one.

Panting, foul with forest mould and rotten leaves, hands and face smeared with blood, he sat up on the ground, glaring at the circle of men around him.
