Samson tells the story of the starvation of the Washipabano family. Thomas Washipabano and his wife had 6 sons, three of them married. They had around 10 grandchildren. The entire family had died from starvation out in the bush. When they didn`t return to Fort George for the summer, the people knew that they had starved to death that winter. The camp with the bodies was discovered. Samson mentions several other incidents of people starving to death, and about hunters not returning from the hunt due to starvation. He also mentions that he had experienced hunger himself and his body becoming gaunt.

Samson recalls a time when a child starved to death. That year, they knew they would have a very hard time because food was scarce. There were many of them at one camp. After killing a porcupine, a few ptarmigan and some fish, they were able to travel. The camp split up. They tracked some caribou and killed 3 caribou. Samson went to tell the other camp to come. As he follows their trail, he notices that they`re having a hard time. A hunter had collapsed from hunger and was dragged home on the toboggan. When he reached the camp, a child had died. After moving away, Samson kills 3 caribou and they did better. While hunting, they see tracks of people from Nitchequon. As they follow the tracks, they see a boy who was mute checking fish hooks on the ice. The boy points to the camp. Samson and his brother visit the camp for a few days. When they leave the camp, a few hunters accompany them to visit their camp.
