In the movie, The Book of Eli, the world changes to a cold, bare place, a place that nobody wants to end up in. Most of the people turn into scavengers and have lost eyesight or the ability to read without any books because of the war. The little towns that are still thriving are being taken over by people who want power. The people of the town are being treated badly and food, water, and cleanliness is very scarce. Eli has been a walker for thirty years who is also blind.
The theme of running tumps geology and physics as it operates in the book’s title, the characters, political aspects, setting, and giving the story a meaningful aspect and an exciting way to root for the protagonist, Jean Patrick. Running, geology, and physics successfully operate in “Running the Rift” as they depict the novel’s characters, political aspects, setting, and meaning. Although running is the most profound all of the themes serve important detail and thought to the reader. The themes are all vital to creatively telling the story of the Rwandan genocide. They allow the reader to grasp a deeper understanding of the people of Rwanda, through Jean Patrick's running and thoughts.

They had to build and farm on the Canyon floor where there was space, but when the water rose, they took to the higher caves” (Condie 128). If the river did not flood in the location where the farmers’ village was in, then the farmers would still be in the village. This is a prime example of Chapter Thirteen, “Geography Matters”, from Foster’s How to Read Literature Like a Professor For Kids because having the farmer’s village in a easily flooded area makes the farmers’ village far more useless for Cassia, Ky, Vick, Indie, and Eli than it could have been, making the plot take a different turn for the better. This shows that geography does matter because it changes what could have happened in the story and has a big impact on the story . Being there would help reunite Ky and Cassia faster since they both passed the township at different times, find the Rising faster, and they could give knowledge on the carving which would then help Cassia, Indie, Ky, and Eli navigate through the carving faster and easier.

The story was also very informing and insightful on the power of a child to change the world.

It was fear because in the beginning of the story it played a big role like in Chapter Two, page 13 when the destruction of her tribe begins and her parents die, it says “ Amari needed her parents to come get her, to tell her not to be afraid, to run with the underbrush for safety.” Amari was afraid because she was confused and her people were being slaughtered. This impacted the story by her village being
Also the trees played a significant role in both stories. They both had boundaries and if you messed with them in certain ways there was consequences. Where Adam and Eve could not touch any of the fruit of the tree and when they did they were punished. Also in the Iroquois version they could only eat the fruit, and when Sky Women got juice from the roots “she was pushed” down the hole. They both also had an explanation of the creation of the world.
This quote from Lord states how the elder people in Alaska are trying to save the sea because the sea is where many people get their resources from. The elders in this part of the text clearly make an emotional appeal to save the sea. When the elders state how we need to save the sea and how people rely on the sea, this changes mood of story. It makes this part of the text makes the reader feel sad for the elders and makes the text seem as if this were a cry for help. This is an example ethos shown in Early Warming.
