Epigraph
Dedication
In devotion to those whose names I bear and to those who bear my names.
First words
My name is Tsoai-talee.
(Prologue) They were stricken, surely, nearly blind in the keep of some primordial darkness.
The names at first are those of animals and of birds, of objects that have one definition in the eye, another in the hand, of forms and features on the rim of the world, or of sounds that carry on the bright wind and in the void.
(Epilogue) I entered into the Staked Plains and turned north.
