Track LaidFirst Paragraph
1 (No longer accessible)[…] The hills are difficult. Explode them in one place, and they'll come back somewhere else. […] Tunnels cave in, or grow teeth. "I think they mean that something with teeth moved into the tunnel," remarks Furnace […]
2[…] remains of old roads, and roadside burials. Highwaymen are supposed to live in these hills. And once, the Tracklayers say, they break open a barrow accidentally, and three of them fall straight asleep and cannot be woken, until they seal it again.
