This war was about land
that could not be reviewed in courts.

Tree, weather
and wolves

There is nothing either of them could have done to save themselves from the perfectly timed falling of a tree in a dark forest.
Figurative Language
"The roebuck, ...were running like driven things tonight...."

"We have quarreled like devils...."
"How the whole region would stare and
if we rode into the
forester folk
"The descending twig had
the skin of his face."
Situational Irony - Just when the two enemies become friends and we anticipate a dramatic change for the better in their lives...wolves.
