Long ago in the central mountains, a young man named Henio became lost while hunting. For many weeks he wandered through the forest, with only his horse to keep him company. He drank the water from the streams and ate berries and the small animals he caught, but he knew that he would perish if he did not find shelter quickly.
One morning, he came to an ancient stone wall. It was so high he could not see over it, and looking in either direction he could see no end.
