At the beginning of the world, the Sivrit people were wanderers. We traveled on our feet, the very old and young on the backs of animals, from place to place as the circle of the year turned. It was exhausting—yes, I’m sure you can imagine! We never stayed in the same place for long.

The people complained of this, but the king of the time told them to be quiet. Traveling meant there was always food for the animals to eat, no matter what the season, and it meant that we never had to endure very bad weather for long. He thought it was the best way for our people to live.

But the king had a daughter, and she had other ideas. She saw how her old auntie walked stubbornly until she fell, because riding the animals was so uncomfortable. She saw how babies cried and were hungry, because their mothers were too tired from walking all day to give them enough milk. She knew there must be a better way.
