Therefor; the indians trusted them and helped them along their journey.”Cabeza De Vaca put in effort to learn four Indian languages and sign language,”(DOC B). The adventurer wanted to learn the languages and sign language to better understand and communicate with the Indians. So how did Cabeza De Vaca survive? He survived because had had survival skills, healing skills, and he respected others good or bad. The main idea is that Cabeza survived because, he ate what he could find and didn't complain he used any shelter he could find.
From there on out, he became a leader, and made sure his voice would be heard. From the peasant life all the way to his death, Villa was a leader. He left a legacy by being a hero, a great war general, and even being a bandit. Villa once said “ My sole ambition is to rid Mexico of the class that has oppressed her and given the people a chance to know what real liberty means. And if I could bring that about today by giving up my life, I would do it gladly.” (http://www.brainyquote.com/quotes/quotes/p/panchovill539981.html).
How to go on a Successful Expedition Cabeza de Vaca, one of the world's greatest explorers. It's amazing how he was able to survive with little tools and help. Cabeza started his expedition in 1525 in seville, he later crashed in Galveston Island, Texas. He and 3 other people had to be able to survive in the new world, with nothing other than themselves and other little resources. Cabeza de Vaca was able to survive seeing that he knew a bit about the Indian tribes and how to speak their language(s), He also knew how to heal wounds and other such things, and most of all he knew how to survive in the wilderness.
This leads us to the question, how did Cabeza de Vaca survive? Cabeza de Vaca survived because of his wilderness skills, his success as a healer, and the respect he held for the Native Americans. The main reason Cabeza de Vaca survived was because of his wilderness skills. He made good use of all of his resources, this is shown where it says, “Cabeza drank water from hollowed out horse legs… Cabeza ate what was available, including berries, mollusks, rats, roots, lizards, snakes, and spiders” (Document B). The castaway always took what was available, and used to the best of his abilities.
In the poem, Baca tries to deliver a message that Americans have a false and stereotypical perception of Mexicans. His message is that Mexicans are not trying to steal jobs from Americans. In the poem’s second stanza, Baca asks: “Do they sneak into town at night, / and as you’re walking home with a whore, / do they mug you, a knife at your throat, / saying I want your job?” (8-11) Baca uses violent actions as sarcastic examples of ways Mexicans “steal good jobs” from Americans. These examples also indicate that Baca is trying to attack the position that Mexicans are dangerous job-stealing criminals that have no other reasons to be in America. To attack the negative views Americans have of Mexicans, Baca shows the faults in America such as: politicians using false accusations to gain followers (12-170) or large farming corporations buying out small farms from white farmers (25-29), and firing white people to hire lower wage illegal immigrants.
In his essay "Learning to Read and Write," Frederick Douglass points out how he learned to read and write on his own. Douglass's interest of reading started at a young age when he first read a newspaper. This made Douglass decide one day to come up with a plan on how he can improve his reading. One way Douglass did this was by asking other kids to teach him when they could. In addition, Douglass would always carry around a book to read when he had time on his hands.
He endures struggles throughout the book because he knows what is right, and will not let the hardships of doing good stop him from helping someone. Robert Kipling wrote a poem in 1895 with similar themes, talking about how to become a better person. It suggests, one must humble but confident, fight for what is right, while remaining true to the lessons that paved the way. The two pieces of literature, though old, represent qualities that people are still trying to achieve. Atticus was an immensely patient and understanding man, yet he was incredibly stubborn when he knew what was right.
He did his writing like a collage. Collecting all his scraps of writing and compiling them into something special. He valued the writing process. He treated it spiritually by washing his hands before. His rituals and natural impulses show how he took writing seriously but because he loved it.
He needed the stuff we have in modern day called a safe chamber and a place to have someone watch over him so he didn’t try to do so many deadly and sad things in his life. Sometimes life hits like a truck and makes you feel worthless like Poe did, but he would have made his life better if he tried to become better and happier with his life rather than keep looking back into his past. Imagine if Poe had a happy life and if he had happy poems how different we would think of him and all that he does. He has impacted the poem community heavily and it has changed our mind perspectives. The way sad poems affect us makes us think of different ways it can be interpreted.
