The sound of the young mans racing heart is almost audible as Edwards describes his desperate predicament: He was fearful of what lay before him. He was terrified of what lay behind. But the man has allies in the underbrush, creatures that perceive him as the Barefoot (in contrast to the Heavy Boots who come in angry pursuit).

A frog signals the presence of water, which quenches the Barefoots thirst- a scurrying squirrel turns his eye to a blanket of leaves under which he naps- a deer diverts a crew of Heavy Boots away from this hiding place- and fireflies light the way to the safe house ahead. The vigilant eyes of these deftly rendered creatures peer out from Coles haunting paintings, cleverly skewed to invoke the animals ground-hugging perspective on the Barefoots flight.
