Prologue - Part I
The adventure opens with Link inside his house...exciting! So your first task is to find something todo! Climb downstairs and exit the house, then travel down the path on your left. A short while later,turn right into the pond where your horse, Epona, waits. Saddle up and ride back up the pathtowards Link's house.Once there, continue down the road directly across from Link's house leading to Ordon village.Ride on through town and up the hill leading to Link's job site, Ordon Ranch. It seems Link's bosshas been having trouble rounding up the goat populace, so meet with him in the center of the fieldto get to work. Thankfully, Link's minimum wage job really isn't that tough. Simply ride your housearound and direct the goats into the barn. Because the goats act like magnets of the same polarity,try to position yourself so the goats are directly between you and the barn. Since they're trying toescape your presence, they'll head right for it! You can also whoop with the action button to frightenthe goats into moving quicker. After all ten goats are captured, jump over the fences with Epona tohead home for some sleep.Link will awaken back inside his house. Climb down and hike over to Ordon village again. Followthe river up to the distraught young woman. It seems she's lost her cradle and can't continue livingwithout it. After the conversation, go back up the path and climb the vine covered pillar. There's aman on top who will teach you the ancient art of summoning hawks. Jump over on the nearby roof,then over to the final two pillars. There's some grass on the last one you can use to call for your hawk buddy. Once he perches himself on your arm, aim down the river at the summit of thedistance island and fire the bird off. This will send it on a crash course with a cradle toting monkey.When the bird returns, it will deposit the cradle in your hands. Now simply jump back to the groundand return it to the riverside woman. However, it seems bringing it to her isn't quite enough. Oh no -she wants you to deliver it to her house too. The nerve! Run up to her house where she'll reward youwith a fishing line.
If you accidentally fall into the water while holding the cradle, worry not! Just push the basket into the open by swimming behind it and use the hawk to grab it again.Alternatively, you can also push it to shore, but this can take an annoyingly long time.

Elsewhere in the village, a shop owner has lost her poor kitten. Run across the nearby bridge and behind the house with the water wheel to locate the cat. Unfortunately, it's a stubborn animal andwon't go home until you catch it a fish. Thank goodness for the fishing line! Stand on the dock andlower it into the water, and then bob the floater up and down to catch their attention. The fish hook will drop below the camera's line-of-sight, so watch the fish carefully. Once you see a fish swim outof view towards the hook, pull the line back to make the fish latches on. After catching the secondfish, press B (read: not "A") to make Link throw it at the cat, who will then return to the shop owner with fish in tow. If only everyone else in this game were that capable...With the cat returned, you best be off to the shopkeeper to gather your sweet, sweet reward. The
