The ends of the fields are in sight. The plain ahead gives way to hills, and mountains rise behind them. Geog and Grimace say that their home lies in a high valley behind the second chain of hills.
But we are left to wonder how close we are to the refugees. Surely they did not press as far as the territories held by the trolls and pixies.
When I conjectured that possibility Geog rejected it as not necessarily so and argued that they could have avoided any contact with his people and done so easily. It all depends on how deep was the fear that drove them. They might possibly have passed through the mountain passes to the land beyond.
I sincerely hope not given the state of their fields.
