The wind had an extra chill today, the sun hadn’t come out in days.The snow is probably up to my knees and it 's still falling.As we arrive in the small town many people lead us to a small tent where a man is sitting.
“Sacajawea?”The man says with a weird look on his face.
“Yes?”As I turn around I notice it 's my brother, Cameahwait. As we get into conversation I bring up our parents he sighs and says.”They died a few years ago?”
As I start to think about all of my other family members he says”Almost everyone died in the attack.”

In 10 Little Indians, the poet turned extreme introvert is standoffish and rude, a product of his loneliness. A Spokane Indian who was adopted to a white family as a child, became a poet and used the name “Harlan Atwater” to sound more like a Spokane, as his white parents gave him a white name when they adopted him. His journey from childhood as an adopted son to a hermit is muddled in the book, as his story is more of a reflection of himself by himself than a profile such as the ones of Joshua Febres and Patrick Harris. Harlan Atwater was a poet and a sad man, and his journey was not a journey to be out on the water, or a journey to get away from a rough and tumble lifestyle. Atwater’s journey was simply one trying to find themselves in the midst of a life that really was not his.

“The Way to Rainy Mountain” is organized very well, it includes three narrative voices. Throughout this novel the first narrative voice is about the Kiowa legends. Then Momaday has a paragraph of contexts that relates to the legend. The author gives the reader a bit of his life by relating a family experience he had.

One place that a reader can pull a meaning out of is “the snow was melting” (Carver 1) as well as “where it was getting dark” (Carver 1). The diction in these segments is simple, but one can look at the contrast between the snow, which is white and pure, and dark, which is mysterious and possibly painful.
