Description Watcher of the Dogs (father of those living in the city) begin a new prayer and a new part of the story. It is a story that begins with White Wolf and all animals, plants, rocks and children, riding the crests of the worlds to come. All of Watcher of the Dogs children now saw everything; every animal, every plant, and every stone as alive as they were themselves. Watcher of the Dogs children had become the prayer itself, just as they were always part of, not separate from, the story. They looked at River as she spoke through her waters and knew she was always a pathway for those who seem broken and for those who seem whole where they can ever be healed.
