    Deep silence fell about the little camp, planted there so audaciously in the jaws of the wilderness. The lake gleamed like a sheet of black glass beneath the stars. The cold air pricked. In the draughts of night that poured their silent tide from the depths of the forest, with messages from distant ridges and from lakes just beginning to freeze, there lay already the faint, bleak odors of coming winter. ("The Wendigo")

    Nachdem er zum fünften Mal aufgerutscht und ich zum fünften Mal weggerutscht war, setzte er erneut an. »Emely, du musst mir dringend bei etwas helfen.« Ohne zu wissen, was er überhaupt wollte, gab ich ihm seine Antwort. »Immer mit der Hand rauf und runter, das schaffst du auch ohne mich.« Andy und Sebastian prusteten los, doch Elyas schmunzelte nur.

    »Hab ich irgendwo einen Fleck?«, murmelte ich und senkte den Blick. »Nein«, sagte er. »Aber eine Spinne in den Haaren.« Ich starrte ihn an, sprang wie von der – Achtung, Wortwitz – Tarantel gestochen auf und schüttelte meine Haare aus. »Ist sie weg?«, rief ich. Statt einer Antwort, hörte ich ihn leise lachen. Ich blinzelte durch meine Haare hindurch und sah wieder diesen unverschämten Schalk in seinen Augen aufblitzen. »Da war überhaupt keine Spinne … oder?« Fünf Personen fingen an zu grinsen und beantworteten meine Frage mit einem Kopfschütteln.

    «Proprio un elfo snob doveva toccarmi in sorte?» le rispose divertito. «Allora, non mi rimane altra scelta che portarti in campeggio, prima o poi, o in canoa o a fare una nuotata nel lago.» Lei lo fissò con la sua più riuscita espressione Scordartelo disegnata sul volto. «Puoi guardarmi come vuoi, ma mai dire mai» ridacchiò lui. «Oh, invece mai è una delle mie parole preferite.» «Scommetto che ti piacerebbe…» «Cosa?» «Il campeggio. Le stelle, il silenzio, le foglie che mormorano al vento, sai, quelle cose lì.» «Per non parlare di orsi, insetti e magari di qualche serpente che ha perso la strada di casa. Mi vengono i brividi solo a pensarci. Sono un elfo cittadino a tutti gli effetti e ho il terrore di tutto ciò che si muove e che non sia addomesticabile.» Lui la fissò con aria divertita. «Incluso il sottoscritto?» Le si era avvicinato troppo e ora la fissava come se volesse divorarla, in modo così sfacciato che, per puro istinto di sopravvivenza, arretrò di un passo. Non abbassò lo sguardo ma per qualche attimo non seppe cosa rispondergli. Non che avesse dubbi che la categoria esseri viventi non addomesticabili e pericolosi includesse anche lui, almeno a dar retta a tutte quelle farfalle che le svolazzavano nello stomaco, ma come avrebbe potuto rispondergli sì? Così gli sorrise a sua volta, pronta all’ennesima bugia. «Sono convinta, predatore, che tu, nonostante i grugniti e i continui brontolii e la tua probabile parentela con un grizzly, sia molto addomesticabile.» Lui alzò un sopracciglio, con un’espressione da schiaffi da premio Oscar.

    We combine our three packs of pasta for dinner – pesto. We tip the dried stuff into a pan, add water and simmer. We try it, looking at each other with disbelief as it hits the tastebuds. ‘It’s pesto, Jim, but not as we know it,’ I say. ‘Fascinating,’ says Lou, unsmiling humouring my Star Trek reference, while wincing at the foul food. (And what made me say that? Is there such a thing as a dad-joke vacuum that needs to be filled, even in the wild?)

    Wilderness areas are first of all a series of sanctuaries for the primitive arts of wilderness travel, especially canoeing and packing. I suppose some will wish to debate whether it is important to keep these primitive arts alive. I shall not debate it. Either you know it in your bones, or you are very, very old.

    I do a lot of walking around in game parks, rain forests, places like that, but it's not like I'm camping in them as much as my day walks.
