The long, long road over the moors and up into the forest--
who trod it into being first of all? Man, a human being, the
first that came here. There was no path before he came.
Afterward, some beast or other, following the faint tracks
over marsh and moorland, wearing them deeper; after
these again some Lapp gained scent of the path, and took
that way from field to field, looking to his reindeer. Thus
was made the road through great Almenning--the common
tracts without an owner; no-man's land.
