A fearsome spirit in the great North Western American forests of
spruce, larch and fir. Although his evil, aquiline face with totemic
war paint is only glimpsed as he peeps quickly behind the trunk of a
tree, Native American elders are very conscious of his presence. He
is most dangerous on the tree lined edges of rivers, as he will push
fishermen off the banks into the water here. After this, he takes
the soul of the drowned person to his home in the forest. What he
does with him there is uncertain.
