I have an army of Webkinz, which are stuffed animals that also come with a web code to play with them on the Webkinz website. I played with them, and used them as crash test dummies whenever possible. Just like Jennings, the main character in They Cage the Animals in Night, by Jennigns Michael Burch, he had Doggie, a floppy and old stuffed dog. The dog got him through more extreme things than a over-immersed Bears fan. As Doggie represents comfort, Sister Frances’s infamous clicker represents totalitarionism, and clothes represents confidence.

Jack London had been an American novelist and is known for works such as The Call of the Wild, which McCandless greatly admired. Chris McCandless had greatly admired Jack London, going as far as carving “Jack London is King” at what came to be the site of his death. The Jack London quote used in the epigraph describes a scene in the forest but uses bitter imagery- yet somehow still romanticises it. “Alex” was unable to ever see past the facade London had built- given that London had hardly ever spent time in the wild himself and most definitely nowhere near as intense as Alaska. This chapter had described how he had been found and this quote leads back to that because though Chris was intelligent, he did not understand that London had to make nature sound beautiful.
The book you chose Where the Red Fern Grows by Wilson Rawls was a book I enjoyed. I liked the story because the 10 year old Billy Coleman was always seeking new adventures. He was at first determined to buy two hounds. After he bought his two hounds, he went on adventures and competed in a contest with them to kill coons. Every night he and his dogs would be determined to kill the coon they found.
Throughout Tobias Wolff’s memoir This Boys Life, the character Jack is continuously lying to himself about his identity. His characteristic of escaping reality through his imagination is a reoccurring theme in A Boy’s Life. The lies commence in the letters which he sends to his pen pal, Alice. In these letters he describes himself as “the owner of a palomino horse named Smiley who shared [his] encounters with mountain lions, rattlesnakes, and packs of coyotes on [his] father’s ranch, the Lazy B. When [he] wasn’t busy on the ranch, [he] raised German shepherds and played for several athletic teams” (Wolff 13).
“It is a very great pleasure and honor to welcome Mr. Sanger Rainsford, the celebrated hunter, to my home… [General Zaroff] read [Rainsford’s] book about hunting snow leopards in Tibet…” (Connell, 4) This shows Rainsford has prior knowledge of hunting that later helps him in the story when his hunting skills are tested. In the movie Castaway by Robert Zemekis, Chuck Noland survived by using his resources and rethinking past acquaintances so that he could build a raft, weave a rope, and cut down trees for logs.
Every story has a moral. In certain Native American legends, a character called Coyote serves to entertain as well as educate. In Ricochet River, author Robin Cody creates a character to serve as his Coyote, a Native American boy by the name of Jesse. Cody uses the characterization of Jesse to entertain his readers as well as teach them about the hardships faced by a Native boy trying to fit into a primarily white environment. Even Jesse’s own mother has a conflicting view of his cultural identity, which she expresses through diction.

According to Frank Madden, “William Stafford earned a Ph.D. from Iowa State University, and for many years taught at Lewis and Clark College in Portland, Oregon” (Madden 1164). Safford also wrote a tremendous amount, journaling many of his daily experiences. His first major collection of poems was published when he was forty-eight years old and later received the National Book Award in 1963. “Traveling Through the Dark” is one of Stafford’s most well-known poems because it, like many of his poems, tells an easily comprehensible story with underlying currents of greater meaning.
