Book 8: The Sharp End of the Stick
Part III: Out of the Frying Pan...


Narrator:Kevyn re-invents the bow-and-drill firestarter.
Kevyn:The tinder is nice and dry.

The animal hide is just slack enough here in the bow.

Kevyn:Enough talk. Let's make fire, and stop living like an animal.
Kevyn:Oh-ho! An ember!
Kevyn:Into the tinder with a quick puff of air. . .
Kevyn:And flame! Now for a touch with my sap-infused torch. . .
Kevyn:Hah! I am no animal! I am MAN, and I rule THE VERY FLAMES OF HEAVEN!
