The Man Made of Words is slightly different from the published version (I searched up the piece online--the title is unmentioned in this reading); "Set" later published in In The Bear's House as "The Transformation" (subtitle Kiowa Story of Tsoai) (I searched this piece online); All readings after Scaffold Bear are fiction; audio is cut for a few seconds at 45:58
