While Korak sets fishing nets with Pahkut in a river, a sudden flash flood brings a large chest that they pull to shore. It has two bearing poles attached. The chest contains two dwarf Arabs with large turbans. Instead of thanking Korak for saving them, they order him and the ape to carry their chest home. Laughing, Korak and Pahkut turn away to leave and the two surprisingly lithe dwarfs leap upon their backs. With poisoned thumb rings the dwarfs, Eld and Middo, with telepathic powers, force the pair to carry them on their shoulders over hill and dale to a strange city. There they are met by the servants of the two dwarves, and Korak and Pahkut are released. But Pahkut attacks them and they paralyze him with a dart tipped with euphorbia. Outnumbered, Korak follows them from afar and observes where the body of the ape is taken-- to a narrow gap in a large cliff. By night he scales the cliff and enters a strange forest of gigantic trees, where the race of dwarves sleep among the roots. In the middle of the wood is a large carniverous tree, that the dwarves feed in order that they can drink of its sacred milk and thus acquire their unusual powers. Korak finds Pahkut lying beside the tree, but he is also hit by a euphorbia dart and falls. At dawn the tree feeds. But a thunderstorm delays the plant’s functions long enough for Korak to regain some movement and start a grass fire with two stones. The fire engulfs the tree and the poisonous fumes kill off the watching tribe of dwarves, who are standing downwind.
