“How much further is it to the gold mine?” Carl asked as he glanced around the clearing then added, “This place is creepy.”
“I am not surprised you feel it. Many have perished here. The animals usually take care of cleaning up the bodies, even the bones, but the spirits get trapped here.” Little Bearclaw replied casually.
“How did they die?”
“Most starve to death because they get lost. Some are killed by the beasts that live here and some, well, it’s hard to say. It is said that they are heard screaming in the night then in the morning their bodies are found but there is no sign of how they died.”
