Chapter Summary

This chapter contains transcriptions of a folktale, which is about a shepherd who thinks himself worth the same as a blind wolf. A shepherd used to go to look after sheep. Every day one of his sheep was lost. He went up to a place on a hill. He set up an observation point for his sheep. He saw one sheep running up the mountain. The wolf started eating the sheep. He came inside and saw the wolf eating his sheep. He wanted to kill the wolf. One day shepherd's wife went up the mountain and her foot went down into a hole. She took away her foot and there was a pot of gold coins. She found gold coins under her leg. The story tells that God considered him worth more than the wolf that ate his sheep.
