00:
00:43,500 -- 00:00:46,959

Some people hear their own

inner voices

2

00:
00:47,037 -- 00:00:48,766

with great clearness

3

00:
00:48,839 -- 00:00:52,070

and they live

by what they hear

4

00:
00:52,142 -- 00:00:55,236

Such people become crazy

5

00:
00:55,312 -- 00:00:57,576

or they become legend

6

00:
01:05,055 -- 00:01:09,719

Tristan Ludlow was born

in the Moon of the Falling Leaves

7

00:
01:09,793 -- 00:01:12,318

It was a terrible winter

8

00:
01:12,396 -- 00:01:17,390

His mother almost died

bringing him into this world

9

00:
01:21,237 -- 00:01:25,106

His father, the Colonel,

brought him to me

10

00:
01:25,175 -- 00:01:30,340

I wrapped him in a bearskin

and held him all that night

11

00:
01:32,850 -- 00:01:34,784

As he grew into a man

12

00:
01:34,852 -- 00:01:38,288

I taught him the great joy

of the kill

13

00:
01:38,354 -- 00:01:41,119

when the hunter

cuts out its warm heart

14

00:
01:41,191 -- 00:01:44,183

and holds it in his hands

15

00:
01:44,260 -- 00:01:47,253

setting its spirit free

16

00:
01:49,299 -- 00:01:51,790

Colonel Ludlow had three sons

17

00:
01:51,869 -- 00:01:55,430

but Tristan was his favorite

18

00:
01:55,506 -- 00:01:57,531

I had had sons too

19

00:
01:59,410 -- 00:02:01,344

But they were gone now

20

00:
02:01,412 -- 00:02:02,844

forever

21

00:
02:04,180 -- 00:02:07,308

It was a very bad time

22

00:
02:07,383 -- 00:02:07,583

The Colonel had tried

to help the People

23

00:
02:07,583 -- 00:02:10,747

The Colonel had tried

to help the People

24

00:
02:13,055 -- 00:02:16,457

but it was no use

25

00:
02:16,527 -- 00:02:20,190

So he decided

to go his own way

26

00:
02:22,633 -- 00:02:26,796

He wanted to lose the madness

over the mountains, he said

27

00:
02:26,869 -- 00:02:28,962

and begin again

28

00:
02:37,079 -- 00:02:39,547

"Lose the madness, '"he said

29

00:
02:39,615 -- 00:02:42,413

And so we lived for many years

30

00:
02:42,485 -- 00:02:44,350

and the boys grew strong

31

00:
02:54,131 -- 00:02:57,361

Alfred was the older brother

32

00:
02:57,433 -- 00:02:59,492

old even for his years

33

00:
03:01,037 -- 00:03:04,006

Samuel was the youngest

34

00:
03:04,073 -- 00:03:07,406

There was nothing these brothers

would not do for him

35

00:
03:07,477 -- 00:03:09,911

They watched over him

like a treasure

36

00:
03:11,681 -- 00:03:13,114

One year...

37

00:
03:13,182 -- 00:03:16,845

I am an old man

and cannot remember the year

38

00:
03:16,919 -- 00:03:19,911

But it was the Moon

of the Red Grass

39

00:
03:19,988 -- 00:03:22,685

when Isabel Ludlow,

their mother

40

00:
03:22,758 -- 00:03:24,918

went away for the winter

41

00:
03:24,993 -- 00:03:28,953

She said the winters

were too cruel for her

42

00:
03:29,031 -- 00:03:31,864

She said she was afraid

of the bears

43

00:
03:33,069 -- 00:03:35,366

She was a strange woman anyway

44

00:
03:49,651 -- 00:03:53,018

That spring, though,

she did not return

45

00:
03:54,624 -- 00:03:59,219

And, after that,

she did not come much to see us

46

00:
04:00,429 -- 00:04:03,397

Alfred wrote her many letters

47

00:
04:03,466 -- 00:04:06,902

but Tristan refused

to speak of her

48

00:
04:06,968 -- 00:04:10,302

His world was here with me

49

00:
04:13,276 -- 00:04:17,803

Every warrior hopes a good death

will find him

50

00:
04:17,879 -- 00:04:19,904

but Tristan couldn't wait

51

00:
04:21,149 -- 00:04:23,242

He went looking for his

52

00:
05:42,263 -- 00:05:44,355

Tristan!

53

00:
05:44,432 -- 00:05:45,864

Here

54

00:
05:49,403 -- 00:05:50,639

- Was it a bear?

- Yes, sir
