In the howling, snowy north, a young kestrel named Skarlath is lost in a snowstorm after leaving the nest, is captured by the cruel ferret Swartt Sixclaw and his group of vermin, they have captured a young badger who they torment mercilessly. The two young beasts help each other escape from the vermin camp. In the scuffle that ensues, the badger creates a massive hornbeam limb club; the ferret and the badger both vow to extort revenge, each declaring the other to be his mortal enemy. As the young badger could not remember his name, Skarlath dubs him Sunflash after the distinctive golden stripe running down his snout; the two young beasts become inseparable friends and travel throughout Mossflower Woods together, defending the weak and helpless and growing older. Sunflash's reputation spreads throughout the land, he moulds his hornbeam limb into a fearsome, stone-spiked warclub, calling it his mace.

Meanwhile, Swartt grows older and wiser. He travels the northern lands with his vixen seer Nightshade and his horde and ends up at the camp of Bowfleg, a fat ferret with a large horde who has settled down in a plentiful land; as an earlier leader of Swartt's, his captains are suspicious, rightly so: with the help of Nightshade, Swartt executes a cunning trick that kills Bowfleg. Swartt marries his daughter, Bluefen. At this point and Skarlath have spent several seasons in the Lingl-Dubbo cave, the home of the families of Tirry Lingl the hedgehog and Bruff Dubbo the mole.

Bryony, feeling his banishment was unjust, leaves the abbey to track the ferret down, her molefriend Togget accompanies her, together they follow Veil as he wanders through Mossflower. The young ferret, remaining unapologetic and as mean as makes life difficult for the mousemaid and her friend. Leagues away, Swartt launches an attack. Together with a smooth-talking ferret corsair named Zigu, an attack is mounted and war begins.

Sunflash and Skarlath go hunting after them, Nightshade lays an ambush with poison arrows. In the ensuing attack, Nightshade kills Skarlath with a poison arrow, only to be slain by Sunflash seconds later. Swartt and his depleted horde flee to the mountains east of Salamandastron.

As such, Marcian Bleahu is one of the most important Romanian scientific personalities of the second half of the last century, his books and his conferences have inspired generations of youth fond of nature, the exploration of the caves in Romania, he has been, at the same time, a mentor for many Romanian geologists after the second World War.

Marcian David Bleahu was born on March 14, 1924, in Brașov, in the family of a notary, but his maternal ancestry goes up to the prince Constantin Brâncoveanu. He was enlisted during the World War II, he graduated from high-school in Brașov. In 1949, he graduated from the Faculty of Sciences of the University of Bucharest.

He was eliminated from the teaching system for political reasons, he started again his university career after 1989, together with prof. Dolfi Drimer, he founded the Ecological University, where he was appointed as Dean of the Faculty of Natural Sciences. Between 1949 - 1994, Marcian Bleahu worked as a geologist, a researcher and as a manager at the Geological Institute of Romania, he was elected as a senator for the legislatures 1990-1992 and 1996-2000, on the lists of the Romanian Ecologist Movement, of the Romanian Ecologist Federation.

Between 1991 - 1992 he was the Minister of the Environment. He has received several decorations. At present, he has retired from the public activity, but he continues to write articles and books in several fields, including music, or ecology. After graduation, in 1949, Marcian Bleahu joins the Geology Department of the Bucharest University, he teaches of the Geology of the Quaternary. In 1961 he is eliminated from the Department on political grounds. On April 4, 1990, together with Dolphi Drimer, Marcian Bleahu founds the Ecological University, the first private university in Romania and the only university with an ecological profile.

Between 1949 - 1994 with his teaching activity, Marcian Bleahu worked as a geologist at the Geological Institute, where he implements most of his scientific activities.

Between 1952 - 1985, he does a long series of research in the Carpathian Mountains in the Apuseni. During all these 33 years of field research, he synthesized and made public the stratigraphy and the structure of the Apuseni Mountains; the papers he published in this field are the first scientific source about the geology of the Maramures, Codru-Moma and Metaliferic Mountains - he dedicated to each of them a monography. These researches had an important impact on synthesis of national interest, such as coal deposits and Mesozoic formations, but from the tectonic point of view, in the general works about the structure of the territory, as well as in the integration of these researches in the wider framework of the study of Triassic paleography in Eastern Europe. Directly, or by coordinating teams of geologists, Marcian Bleahu produced over 50 maps component of the Geological Map of Romania, on a scale of 1:200.000, for which he made the state standards in the field. A special chapter of this field activity was the study of karstology, meaning the exploration, the mapping and the research of the caves in the Apuseni mountains unknown until then: Peștera de la Căput, Peștera Buciumul Sucit, Peștera Vântului, Peștera Vadu Crișului, Peștera Șura Mare, Peștera din Peretele Dârnini, Peștera Coliboaia, Avenul de sub Pietruța, Peștera Izvorul Tăușoarelor, Peștera-aven ghețarul de sub Zgurăști, Peștera Cetatea Rădesei, Peștera Pojarul Poliței, Peștera Scărișoara, Peștera Huda lui Papară, Vânătările Ponorului, Izbucul de la Cotețul Dobreștilor, Avenul de sub Colții Grindului, Peștera Gaura cu Muscă, Peștera Bolii, Peștera Neagră, Peștera Ghețarul de la Vârtop, Avenul din Piatra Ceții, Peștera Calului, Peștera Bisericuța, Peștera din Dealul Cornului, Peștera Mică de la Vânătare, Peștera Dâlbina, Peștera Corobana lui Gârtău, Peștera V5, Peștera Poarta lui Ionele, Avenul din Șesuri etc.

Second Manifesto

To be distinguished from the Second Manifesto of SurrealismThe "Second Manifesto" was a 1904 declaration made by Joseph F. Smith, the president of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, in which Smith stated the church was no longer sanctioning marriages that violated the laws of the land and set down the principle that those entering into or solemnizing polygamous marriages would be excommunicated from the church. In 1890, church president Wilford Woodruff had issued the initial Manifesto, in which he suspended the LDS Church's long-standing practice of plural marriage. However, after the Manifesto, it became clear that a number of church members, including members of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles, were continuing to enter into or solemnize polygamous marriages. Smith issued the Second Manifesto near the beginning of the Reed Smoot hearings, United States Congressional hearings into whether LDS Church apostle Reed Smoot should be permitted to sit as a United States Senator from Utah.

The "Second Manifesto" was announced at the general conference of the church held on April 6, 1904. At a public meeting, Smith announced that he would like to read an "official statement" that he had prepared so that his words "may not be misunderstood or misquoted". Smith read: Inasmuch as there are numerous reports in circulation that plural marriages have been entered into, contrary to the official declaration of President Woodruff of September 24, 1890 called the manifesto, issued by President Woodruff, adopted by the Church at its general conference, October 6, 1890, which forbade any marriages violative of the law of the land, I, Joseph F. Smith, President of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, hereby affirm and declare that no such marriages have been solemnized with the sanction, consent, or knowledge of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and I hereby announce that all such marriages are prohibited, if any officer or member of the Church shall assume to solemnize or enter into any such marriage, he will be deemed in transgression against the Church, will be liable to be dealt with according to the rules and regulations thereof and excommunicated therefrom.

Joseph F. Smith, President of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Francis M. Lyman, president of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles presented the following resolution of endorsement, seconded by B. H. Roberts and accepted unanimously by those in attendance at the conference: Resolved that we, the members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, in General Conference assembled, hereby approve and endorse the statement and declaration of President Joseph F. Smith just made to this Conference concerning plural marriages, will support the courts of the Church in the enforcement thereof. Smith's official statement was published in the Improvement Era, an official magazine of the church. A number of church leaders were opposed to the enforcement of the "Second Manifesto", including apostles John W. Taylor and Matthias F. Cowley; as a result of their opposition, both resigned from the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles in 1906, in 1911 Taylor was excommunicated for continued opposition.

In 1909, Francis M. Lyman chaired a church committee to investigate plural marriages since the Second Manifesto that excommunicated people, involved in such practices. Although the Second Manifesto ended the official practice of new plural marriages, existing plural marriages were not automatically dissolved. Many Mormons, including prominent church leaders, maintained existing plural marriages into the 1940s and 1950s; as the church began to excommunicate those who continued to enter into plural marriages, some of those individuals began the Mormon fundamentalist movement. Many such dissidents were motivated by the belief that it was improper for the church to ban plural marriage, which they saw as an "eternal commandment", while others pointed out that neither the original nor the Second Manifestos were presented as revelations from God, as previous statements of important church doctrine had been. Unlike the 1890 Manifesto, the LDS Church has not canonized the "Second Manifesto", but it remains an accurate description of the church's attitude towards its members who enter into or solemnize polygamous marriages.
