How to use Glooscap in a sentence
This is the same bird one of whose wings Glooscap once cut when it had used too much force.
But Glooscap is said to have repaired the wing of Wochowsen, so that we now have wind alternating with calm.
The stories of the birth of Glooscap, his power to work miracles, and his ultimate return to earth, are very suggestive.
