Following the donkeys and Ashur-bani, you walk deeper and deeper into the mountains. It is cold now and you begin to worry that this is the wrong direction. Suddenly feathers fall from the sky. They are white and cold and vanish as soon as they hit you. You have never seen snow before. The snow is now falling thickly and you have to find shelter. Soon Ashur-bani discovers a small wooden hut, big enough for both of you.

The snow falls for days until the tracks across the mountains disappear. You will have to hunt for food until spring comes when you can make your way home and tell your father of your adventures.
