I arranged it so that he lies back in the canoe, his head on his pack. I found him this morning on the beach, shivering and half conscious. What happened over there has wrecked him. see him putting those needles in his arm. They are a part of what’s killing him. But something far worse is consuming Xavier from the inside. It’s this that I must figure out how to remove. I wish it were simply a matter of finding the right root in the bush. This is a sickness I’ve not had to face before.

Three Day Road by Joseph Boyden. How to tell if your best friend's gone Windigo. In the trenches he becomes the teacher, or at least, the senior partner, picking off the soldiers that Xavier spots for him. But as the war progresses, Xavier cannot evade the knowledge that his friend, protégé and protector has taken to war with a more than human blood-lust. Perhaps the most startling success of this book is the way it combines a tale of racial and cultural displacement with a mystic saga. The Windigo, symbol of despair, prowls through these pages. His icy bite is as terrible in the trenches as in the woody wastes of Canada.
