The father and son may be getting older and spending less time together, but their love as father and son fortifies their relationship and prevents it from completely changing, which is exemplified when the father allows his son to use his rod to go fishing. The father’s rod is said to be “the only extravagance his father had had in his whole life” (45-46), meaning that the rod is of great significance to the father. Almost a whole paragraph is about how important the rod is to the father, and that’s not a detail included for decoration in Trumbo’s writing. Knowing that the father values his rod and invests time and money in it to

I was taught to cast a fishing line and how to handle a 12 gauge shotgun by my father and my Uncle Joe. We’d spend countless hours fishing for trout, but most of our time went towards duck hunting and it is still the best way for me to relax and clear my mind. Duck hunting is a very social kind of hunt and that means it calms my spirit. Hunters experience nature in such a way that they become part of it, and when that experience is shared with another human, it forms a bond like no other. Some of the best conversations I’ve ever had took place sitting in a duck blind, waiting for the ducks to fly overhead.
For example, when they are looking for the food in the boat, when the father is going to go outside to have a look, the boy asks to go with him. The father refuses and says, “I’ll keep tracking on you. To make sure everything’s okay” (221). Then, the father went out to find food by himself. We can see that the father protects his son so much that he will not have possibilities to let anything hurt the boy.
Smith writes about Chief Powhatan of the Powhatan Nation, "He kindly welcomed me with such good words and great platters of sundry victuals, assuring me his friendship and my Liberty in four days... Having all the kindness he could devise, sought to content me, he sent me home with four men: one that usually carried my gown and knapsack after me, two loaded with bread, and one to accompany me." (True Relation, John Smith) Smith had nothing but praise for the strange new people. Seventeen years later, that story changed. Seventeen years later, Smith transformed his originally kind and welcoming Natives into brutal killers. Seventeen years later, John Smith lied to the world.
When Odysseus commands his men to go back to sea to voyage, he is a good leader because he is telling his men what to do. He is being a leader by protecting his men from the Ciccone 's army by leaving before reinforcements come. For example, when Odysseus and his men are heading to the sirens Odysseus states “you are to tie me up, tight as a splint” (Homer 1005). Odysseus is an admirable leader when he orders his men to tie him up and do not untie him because he is sacrificing himself for the good of his men. He is a leader when he does this because he lets his men not suffer the sirens while he has to.
