In the neighborhood where Tom lived, there was a murder case which was about a year ago but Tom had always had this usual neighbor that wear those weird biker jackets and those completely darken shades when all you can see is his huge fury nose. His name was unknown and no one actually knew many things about him, they only recognized his appearance when they see him. After walking his dog
Around halfway through the journey across the desert, Salva was ravenous for any form of food or water, and he was languishing in the torrid conditions. His Uncle Jewir recognized the state that he was in, and there was a moment in the book where he tried to get him to continue. ‘“Do you see that group of bushes?” Uncle said, pointing. “You only need to walk as far as those bushes. Can you do that, Salva Mawien Dut Ariik?”’.
He said he would walk me home as much as I wanted that I was meeting my dad at the dinner, that we always ate at when I was a kid. Instead he walked me to the dinner and said he hoped we could hang out again some time. Around ten o’clock my dad still hadn't made it to the dinner but it was closing time so I walked home. I had texted and called him around twenty times and I haven't heard anything from him. There were two ways to get home one took about an hour the other was about 30 minutes.
He was done. “Satisfied, apparently with what he had learned during his two months of solitary life in the wild, Mccandless decided to return to civilization.” (168). Mccandless had finished his quest, but sadly for him he died for a simple, unforgiving mistake. The one mistake that truly killed Chris was so: “When Mccandless tried to walk out of the bush…the basket was in the same as it is now on his side of the canyon…crossing the Teklanika to safety would have been a trivial matter. Because he had no topographic map, however, he had no way of conceiving that salvation was so close.” (174).
Candy, a worker on the ranch, lost his hand in a farm accident and is unable to do many forms of work at the ranch. He owned a dog that was old and unable to do much, until the dog was shot by Carlson to put it out of its misery. Candy exclaims, “I oughtta of shot that dog myself, George. I shouldn’t oughtta of let no stranger shoot my dog” (61). By him saying the word “stranger”, it shows importance of how distant he was from humans on the ranch, and closer to animals instead.
The colonists still ate, but because they couldn’t import food through ships, they had to get food through cattle drives and wagons. This means they were eating much less. The story was different for firewood. They could not import any, so when they ran out of the firewood they had stocked before the port was closed, they couldn’t get any more. Bostonians had to resort to breaking down their chairs, mills, sheds and more wooden items just to heat their homes.
His age is a social barrier that keeps him isolated. Another reason he is alone is because of his dog, “Why’n’t you get Candy to shoot his old dog and give him one of the pups to raise up? I can smell that dog a mile away. Got no teeth, damn near blind, can’t eat. Candy feeds him milk.

At long last, Jacobus moved to the desert. It was a move planned for many months after a single visit to a small desert town convinced him it was time to move. There, on a dark summer night he discovered what he had heard of, but never seen: a night sky filled with stars and constellations and galaxies spinning far above that had been invisible to him in the city. He was mesmerized by the pale wisps of stars that blew silently across the sky, glowing dimly in the persistent summer heat. He heard coyotes howl surprisingly nearby as they saluted the night sky and each other.
Even the water that Nya gets with much pain and suffering is muddy and infected with Guinea Worms. Another reason perseverance is an important theme in A Long Walk to Water is because Salva had to cross the Aboko desert for 3 days. Also, “Salva’s shoes stood no chance against the hot stony desert ground. page 52 ,” which means that Salva's shoes were reduced to shreds and he had to walk on the hot ground for 3 days. Also, because Salva’s shoes broke, he lost a toenail by hitting it on a rock and still had to keep walking.
When the door opened, a colored man introduced himself. “I’m guessing you folks are escaping, correct?” Betty peered back at Nancy and signaled her to proceed. “My name is Rick. Here is some more food for your trip, you guys look famished.” Immediately after taking the appreciated food, Betty asked Rick where they were. As a result of walking tiresomely for days, they were informed that they made it to Virginia.
"It is not a happy story, but I will tell you now," said Shaul. "We walked through the hot desert with very little to eat for many months. We suffered greatly, but still we sang to God and prayed, and he provided food for us. "Then one day Moses told everyone to wait for him, and he climbed up to a mountaintop. He said he was going to talk to God.
“When the bus arrived at sparse border camp in the Sonora desert, the workers were separated and given to other coyotes.” (Slavery in the Fields, P453). The coyote leading Antonios group was Chino, who led them through the desert for 3 days with minimal supplies to a whistle stop. From there they went to a home in Tucson, where Chino threatened them with violence and took control of their money and lives. Antonio was not given a construction job but was forced to work in the tomato fields of Florida with the others. Chino said they would be paid $150 a day, and sent them with a driver (known as a jackal).
Averous caught the monsters attention and explained what he wanted. Gund told him to come back with some food and a meaningful object and then he will give him some money. Averous began his long journey home. When he did reach home he decided to sleep for the night and to head out tomorrow morning to go back to the beast and claim his reward. The next day Avarus awoke before his brother, he grabbed a sack and stuffed an old poorly made doll into it.
If your neighbor had corn and if you had beans they would give-and-take. My father could walk in the middle of the night with no lights since there was no electricity and be able to walk the dirt roads with an oil lamp in his hand and nothing would happen. He was also able to walk the nights with the brightness of the moon. Now, Mara Salvatrucha 13 members don’t let poor families in El Salvador walk the streets without them being fearful of getting murdered or robbed. These gangs have made El Salvador look corrupt because they are lazy, disrespectful, and don’t want to work properly for their money.
