Desolation Mountain CHAPTER 1 He watches the boy on the steep rise above him He is that boy and he is not The boy is intent on the sky, a witchs brew of swirling gray clouds He is anxious, waiting The boy And him For what, neither of them knows The air smells not of the evergreen all around but of something foul Diesel Fire A breeze blows across his face carrying a different smell, even foul Burning flesh The boy holds a compound bow, complicated, powerful An arrow is notched The boys stomach is taut His body knows something his mind does not, something terrible The boy watches the sky, and he watches the boy The bird appears out of the dark boil of clouds Wings spread broad, catching the wind Curling in a wide arc above the hill The birdclearly an eagle nowlets out a screech High pitched Then another The boy raises his bow The eagle circles, near enough that the boy can see details Golden irises, saffron beak, long, dangerous talons The eagle cries again The boy draws back the bowstring Calculates trajectory, wind speed Leads the bird Takes a breath Eases it out Lets the arrow fly The great bird twists in an explosion of feathers Tries to right itself Begins to plummet The boy lowers the bow Watches an egg drop from the eagle Watches the eagle in its fall, lost among the evergreens The boy stands still as death He feels uncertain, as if there is still to be done, but what that is he doesnt know He turns and stares down the hillside At the young man who stares back Him And not him Neither of them understands Then the boy on the rise above him sees something, which he senses now at his own back From the look on the boys face, from the way his eyes grow huge, he understands that what is behind him is enormous and terrifying and threatens them both He feels its breath break against him, hot and hungry He should turn, face this beast whatever it is, but hes paralyzed with fear The boy on the hill opens his mouth to cry out At the same moment, he opens his The sound of their one scream wakes him The old man sat on the other side of the fire, listening Old He was ancient, with years behind him than any living thing in the dark of that great forestturtle, owl, deer, wolf, bear, all were children in comparison The years, kind to no one, had done their best to weather his flesh, weaken his muscle, erode his bone His body displayed none of the power and comeliness that had so marked it when the twentieth century was young Time had etched lines long and deep into his face His white hair hung over his shoulders in spidery wisps The weight of ten decades of living had bent his spine, but only slightly In the firelight, he appeared to be the ghost of a thing, not the thing itself And yet the young man who stared at him across the fire perceived only wisdom, only possibility Many times you have seen this vision the old man asked Many times, the young man answered That is all of it The young man nodded All of it The eagle is sacred Killing an eagle, that is a terrible thing The fire popped An ember leapt from the flames, landed on the jeans the old man was wearing The old man gazed up at the stars and didnt seem to notice Your leg, Henry, the young man said But the ember had burned itself out And so, the old man finally said, as if speaking to the stars Why now The young man didnt understand the question Why now what The old mans eyes came back to earth You tell me The young man knew better than to press this elder, his mentor He considered his reply Now, because it worries me Its a portent, Henry Something terrible is going to happen My visions are always about terrible things Ive never had one thats hopeful They have proven helpful, the old man pointed out Then he asked again, as if it were a new question, Why now If you mean why have I come to you only now, its because I thought I could figure this out on my own But I dont have a clue I need help, before its too late The old man closed his eyes, looked as if he were about to sleep Then, Too late for what If I understood the vision, I would understand that Maybe so Maybe not Visions are tricky They can be the thing itself, or the shadow of the thing If its only a shadow, why does it scare me so much The old man took a stick from the fire, the end still licked by tongues of flame He moved it toward the young mans face The flames came nearer and nearer, until the young man could feel the heat on his cheek, the fire only inches from his flesh But he didnt flinch You are not afraid the old man asked I believe you wont burn me Or if you do, theres purpose in it A vision is like that The old man returned the stick to the fire He stared deeply into the young mans face, his eyes dark, hard, gleaming in the flickering light Who is the boy Im the boy, the young man answered And Im not What is this beast that frightens you I dont know Its behind me I never see it And who is it you are afraid for, Stephen OConnor For the boy, Stephen answered And for me He leaned toward the old man And I dont know why, Henry, but for you, too.Praise for Desolation Mountain Krueger skillfully combines the otherworldly setting of the Minnesota wilds with Native
