Wallace, even the animals appear to be on the Devil's side.2 The wolf plays his
stereotypic villain's role by "hatching a plot" against Big-Foot. In the tall tale
storyteller's tradition, the old Indian fighter soon begins to suspect "foul play" and
"mischief" from the "devils" who are running in a huge gang. The wolves trap him
in the trunk of an old oak tree where he fights them off all night with his knife. Like
all devils, they melt away into the chaparral with the light of day. In other tales,

An' I gets 'em 'cause I'm a Cragg like the rest o' you, an' devils seem to be in the
Cragg blood. I've a notion it's easier to stand the devils in the country here, than
in the city where you live." Nan didn't know whether to be amused or angry. "Yet
you tried to run away once," she reminded Ingua, "and it was Mary Louise who

house in the land, the War Department inscribed it upon the flag. And every man
who failed to shout it or who was silent, was proclaimed a traitor-- none but those
others were patriots. To be a patriot, one had to say, and keep on saying, "Our ...

Although Palalu was selected as a country to avoid for travellers for several years
now, there were still many people lined up to board the plane. Many of them
looked like they were returning to their home country. For the general public,

was mentioned on evening news, it was either about yet another failed coup or
occasionally a successful one. There were numerous warring factions within the
country, ...
