Charlie talks about his father`s father`s father; his great-grandfather. This story is at a time when the Cree people began having guns. This is a time when they had little food. Finding a herd of caribou, Charlie`s great-grandfather decides to use snares instead of using the gun and catches the entire herd of caribou.

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).

Chiiwish Awaashish is an orphan who is mistreated by others. He asks young girls who are cleaning fish to give him some. And when he is refused fish, he brings on strong winds so that people cannot check their nets. Chiiwish Awaashish also gets a girl at camp pregnant mysteriously. After the baby is born, it is discovered that Chiiwish Awaashish is the father.

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.

Kaauchihkumishiu tests the powers of Piyaakwaakimiu by getting him angry. Kaauchihkumishiu trades a caribou skin for a fish net from Piyaakwaakimiu. After the trade, Kaauchihkumishiu returns the net saying that he heard rumours that Piyaakwaakimiu was not satisfied with the trade. Both men leave each other on a sour note. Kaauchihkumishiu paddles and notices a blade of sea grass stuck on his paddle. He tries to wash it off but it stays on his paddle. He picks off the sea grass with his fingers and continues paddling. Later that night, Kaauchihkumishiu`s arm becomes very sore. After healing his arm, he finds out that it was Piyaakwaakimiu that put a curse on the sea grass to make him sick. Kaauchihkumishiu returns the curse by killing Piyaakwaakimiu. The brother of Piyaakwaakimiu takes revenge on Kaauchihkumishiu.

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.
