In the novel Josiah buys the spotted cattle because they resemble wild animals more than the slow-witted Herefords who are favored by the white American ranchers. Whereas the Herefords die of thirst if someone doesn't bring them water, much like how the white Americans are with the land. However the spotted cattle are able to find water on their own as a result of their native ties to the desert, "descendants of generations of desert cattle" (74). This illustrates how the spotted cattle is self-sufficient and connected to the land similar to the Native Americans. Dissimilar to the white man's cows (and the white man himself), these animals are able to live in the desert.
The Ancient Egyptians believed in an afterlife, and, according to Document D, everything in the afterlife still revolved and relied upon the Nile. The tomb painting in the document showed people still working near the Nile as they did in their previous life. It shows a man and his wife planting seeds, nurturing them, and then cutting the plants, all the while using the river to help them. If the Nile is in their ideal picture of the afterlife, then it must have made a colossal impact on their lives. The songs that the Ancient Egyptians wrote about the Nile were praising it.

Although my Frederick did get exactly what my character group came up with, apparently some of the other Fredericks were more creative in their deal making. For example, Josh made his Frederick mary Bernadette, thus getting her portion of the land in addition to ⅓ of Charles's land as well as ⅓ of Perpetune’s. We all got the “minimum” that we discussed, and stayed true to upholding our beliefs, just some got more than others. The result was Frederick was able to get some land to comfortably live on plus land for his cattle to graze on. It is a bit inconvenient because the two plots of land are on opposite sides of the village but besides that I am fairly satisfied with what I accomplished, let alone what some of the other Fredericks
Similar to the ancient Egypt, the pyramids of Giza have four sided base and these structures are also oriented to the cardinal points of the compass.
