How are the two main conflicts in "The Interlopers" related and how are they resolved?

Ah, good question. One main conflict is between the representatives of the two feuding families about rights to the land: Georg Znaeym and Ulrich von Gradwitz.

The other main conflict is between these two men and nature (a struggle to survive).

They relate by the way they are resolved: they are about to make relative peace and start a new era (ending the feud one way) when wolves come on them (implying the land itself will put an end to their feud another way: by killing them).
