In spite of the stories Antler told, the day was long and dreary.
Antler saw the coming storm and at once she thought of the fire.
As Antler lay in the deep drifts, she seemed powerless to move.
Antler said she had often heard the Big Bear above the voice of the storm.
Most of the women slept that night, but there was no sleep for Antler.
And even then they did not know that Antler had invented the snowshoe.
There was no better trapper than Antler among all the Cave-men.
Antler tried to get the children to play and to forget that they were hungry.
Of course all the people were glad when Antler returned with the men.
And so Antler gathered the children together and began to tell them stories.
