Chapter II

The Sacred Sign

     After Juan's tribe gave the white strangers what food they could spare, they left their seaside home where food would be scarce during the next, rainy months and moved to their inland camp where the deer there would sustain them.

     The winter months over, they returned to their coastal home to find the strangers were gone, but, on a hill overlooking the big water, had left behind "the sacred sign of their god."
