It was as though he had ridden out of a desolate, ages-old world where death mocked at life, into a new one in which life reigned supreme. There was no change in Calumet's expression, however, though below him, spreading and dipping away into the interminable distance, slumbering in the glare of the afternoon sun, lay the land of his youth.
