A light canoe of bark- containing a single human figure- moved swiftly up one of the twin streams that form the Ohio. The water- clear and deep- coming through rocky soil- babbled gently at the edges- where it lapped the land- but in the center the full current flowed steadily and without noise.\' (Excerpt from Chapter 1)
Henry awoke only once, and that was about half way between midnight and morning, when his senses, never still entirely, even in sleep, warned him that something was at the door. He rose cautiously upon his arm, saw a dark muzzle at the crevice, and behind it a pair of yellow, gleaming eyes. He knew at once that it was a panther, probably living in the swamp and drawn by the food.
