The author talks about the old times when her dad had hard times feeding them because they didn`t have any store bought food. They would only live off the wildlife food. There were times when their dad couldn`t catch any game, also when they didn`t have any money or government cheques coming. It was really hard in those days.

George tells the story of a year living in the bush. His family left Fort George and paddled inland. They paddled up the river towards George River. He killed two black bears that fall. They fished at Kaawaawaayaapiskaau as the ice formed. Fish was scarce and they had a hard time catching fish. When they moved to another lake, they caught more fish. One night, a man from Waashaau arrives at their camp. They were able to give him some supplies. He mentions it was the year the Queen`s father`s father died (circa 1936).

George talks about a time of starvation when he was a teenager. It was around Christmas time and they had no food. They reached another camp where the people were hungry also. The wolves were driving the caribou away. They finally were able to get caribou. They went to the other camp to give them food. Many people had starved to death that winter.

George tells a story of his life in the past. His family experienced hunger. They had cached food for the winter but crows and foxes ate everything from the cache. His family camped with people from Whapmagoostui at Apishikimiish (Lac Bienville). As they move further east towards Mistisiipii (George River), they meet up with Montagnais people from Waashaau (Sept Isles?). The Montagnais family was starving. George mentioned that it was hard to communicate with them. George helped the Montagnais by giving them some fish to use as bait for their fish hooks.

This is one story of Kuikuhaachaau. Wolves reach Kuikuhaachaau. The leader of the wolves is named Chiihchiikwaayush. They begin living together. Kuikuhaachaau seems to be very pitiful compared to the wolves. The wolves seem to use shaman power in their hunt but Kuikuhaachaau is very unsuccessful. The wolves give him some of their power but Kuikuhaachaau uses it indiscriminantly. Another time when Kuikuhaachaau collects rock tripe, an arrow passes by him. The other person tries to help using special power but Kuikuhaachaau fails to follow the orders and the help fails. Then, Kuikuhaachaau reaches the man Kaa Umaanikinishiu. Kuikaahaachaau asks him for his caribou corral. Kaa Umaanikinishiu instructs Kuikuhaachaau how to use it but he fails to follow the instructions and isn`t able to kill any caribou.

George tells a story of another winter where they were inland. As they moved inland, they met a Whapmagoostui man coming from the other direction. The man was already very thin from starvation. They lived together at Apishikimiish (Lac Bienville). At that camp, there were over 100 people. They didn`t have much success finding caribou. As George`s family moves away, they kill some caribou.
