"Synopsis: This story concerns a time when the winds on the earth become over-zealous and cause destruction and misery. A brave man, Iyas, sets out and finds Sawan-oong, the Creator of the Wind, and immobilizes him. All is well again until the complete lack of any breezes causes stagnanency and decay throughout the land. Once more Iyas goes to the Spirit, and sets him free. The Indian people have learned that the Great Spirit created the wind-maker for their own good, and will never again tamper with His will."
