In “A Sound Of Thunder,” Eckles gets frightened right when he sees the dinosaur that will attack them. Also, all of the stories have a common theme; every action comes with a consequence.

“When there is no more room in hell, the dead will walk the Earth” (Romero). These words of the main character, Peter, in Dawn of the Dead mirror the situation taking place in the film. With zombies running amok throughout the country, four survivors hijack a traffic helicopter to escape and search for a place to barricade themselves. After landing at a shopping mall, they build themselves a make-shift apartment and overtake the mall, killing all the undead in their path. Homologous with America’s present economic and social culture, consumption is important to the survivors and the zombies.
The second step that the characters must go through is overcoming Western ideology. Wastefulness is deep into Western ideology where overruling and excesses are common. In Dances with Wolves, at the scene when LT. Dunbar first participated in a spectacular buffalo hunt, we can see the extremely wasteful of white hunters as they killed the buffalo to take only the fur, leather and they left the rest to be rotten. This is in high contrast to the Indians, where they utilize everything in the buffalo such as the meat for food, the fur and leather for clothes, and even the bonds for tools. This was similarly portrayed in Pocahontas when the servant threw the good meat to the Governor Radcliffe’s pet pug, but the dog would not touch the meat at all
Later that day, two hunters who have killed a buffalo that once terrorized an entire city bring Maghan an ugly women that they offer to him as a wife, and Maghan sees this woman as the woman the soothsayer was talking about. The hunters earned her from a king after they killed a buffalo that had terrorized the king’s people. The two hunters showed kindness to an old woman, so that old woman told the two hunters how to kill the monstrous buffalo. Once they killed the buffalo, the woman told them to choose the ugliest woman they could find. The two hunters listened and presented this woman to Sundiata’s father, Maghan Kon Fatta.
Having made a bow and four arrows, he went off alone and waited in the timber at a buffalo path…” “the people used the fire drill. A man went off alone and fasted. He learned that certain stones, when struck, would give a spark and that this spark would light tinder.” (The Arapaho Learn How to Hunt Buffalo in AA, pg. 5) The Arapaho’s hunted bison for culinary and various cultural practices. The primary food sources that the Arapaho tribe ate which included bison ranged from all native animals that were available to hunt and provided raw materials as well.
Bloody, vicious, and gut wrenching deaths occur frequently across the world. Human often contribute to the demise of various living things in order to ensure their own survival. People capture and execute animals for nourishment and protection. In the short story “The Rattler,” a man must decide whether or not to spare the life of a rattlesnake that he encounters during a walk in the desert. He chooses to slaughter the snake, resulting in the snake’s gory death.
Chris McCandless ' naivete is exemplified in killing the moose, as he tries to survive in Alaska. He aims to make use of every part of the animal he hunted, therefore attempting to preserve all of it before it rots, however he finds himself and the carcass to become swarmed in mosquitos, flies-- and before he knows it-- maggots, once he tries to gut the animal, which forces him to discard most of the corpse, leaving it to the wolves. The quote “But McCandless, in his naivete, relied on the advice of hunters he 'd consulted in South Dakota, who advised him to smoke his meat, not an easy task under the circumstances.” (Krakauer 166) displays his inexperience. The hunters of South Dakota know only of curing meat in their climate, whereas
