Bitterness like wine matures with age. High on a dismal and windswept hill on the outskirts of the small New England factory town sits a house in which bitterness is a living thing, a companionable presence. It is an old house, weather beaten, run down with perhaps a touch of its own bitterness a silent lament for a splendor long gone. There was a time back in 1905 when bitterness was young and splendor, it was still present when the Woodford sisters sat in the comfortable parlour before the winters fire and read poetry to each other.

Zebarra is a mining engineer in Ecuador near the towering Andes. Up until a year ago his chief sport was mountaineering. His last climb was an attempt to climb the remote and forbidding peak of Parascotopetl, the 20,000 foot crag unconquered by man. It is unconquered still. 3,000 feet from the icy summit his party turned back and fled for their lives all escaping except for one, a guide named Nunez who slipped and fell over the precipice disappearing in to the vast chasm which yearned 10,000 feet beneath them. The horror of him falling has haunted Zebarras dreams for years and because of it he has forsaken climbing for the rest of his life, even though today he has seen Nunez.
