Evie scouts the northern woods for a troublesome ogre. But there are other creatures besides ogres lurking in the forest!
I remembered one of the hunting lessons of my youth—that snow on the ground made hunting and tracking easier. Fresh snow enabled a hunter to see dark shapes moving against the white background. A new snowfall also made newer tracks stand out from older ones.
The improved visibility helped both hunter and prey, but the advantage now shifted to the hunter. Soft snow could absorb footfalls, and it muffled sounds…it was easier for a smaller, more mobile hunter to quietly approach a larger prey.

And watch for more with Evie soon!
