Monkey stood at the edge of the river and watched Turtle swimming against the torrent with a tree that he had caught in the flood: a young tree. Monkey, will you help me to drag it to the clearing and plant it? It will grow and there will be sweet bananas. Turtle pulled the tree by its heavy end — the roots and the trunk — across the ground. Monkey carried just a couple of green fronds from the top end of the tree.
