This is a long story that tells of a young man who went in search of a wife. His travels took him to the home of the Lord of the Mountain where he met and fell in love with the Lord's daughter. They married and ran away to the husband's town. The Lord, in the form of the wind, went all over looking for his daughter, but could never find her. She and her husband would transform into animals so the Lord couldn't recognize them.
