Oh and also, for the food that they catch, they’ll have to eat it raw, the harp seals never cooked their food. They will have to get into the freezing cold water too in order to catch their food, because they can only eat what harp seals eat. So they’ll have to be aware of their surroundings under the water, and they should hope that their able to open their eyes under water, or they’ll be done for, not only will they be unable to catch their food, but they also won’t see the Orca or large shark coming towards them.

Chris messed up big time by going out there with no experience or advice from anyone. If Chris made one mistake it was going out to the Fairbanks bus on the stampede trail in Alaska without anything to help him or even to help him call for help. Even though many people come up to that trail, the weather is so inconsistent and unpredictable in Alaska there was no way to tell if he would ever get any help or see
14.Stone “My petition is, that a morsel of stone of wood, with my husband’s name, may be placed over him to show where he lies(Dickens 109)” The stone is symbolizing the lack of recognition of the mass deaths.
