We went back out to the slopes, and started off with some longer black diamond run, for fun. The cold mountain wind, and the sound of the board hitting the snow, all felt so good. It wasn't too long till we all went back onto the terrain park, we all took turns showing of trick to each other, all trying to one up one another. We would all hit 360’s, spread eagles, and some classic’s. I was at the top of the run and Nate called up to me “hit a 540”.
The 1996 novel, Brian’s Winter is a fictional nature survival story that focuses on Brian, the protagonist. Brian’s Winter is the alternate ending to Hatchet, the first book in which Brian is in a plane crash, and is rescued after having spent just over forty-five days alone in the Canadian wilderness. In Brian's Winter, the author Gary Paulsen experiments with what would have happened if Brian had been left in the Canadian wilderness during winter. The separation starts with Brian noticing cold weather on a day of fall hunting. Brian prepares himself for winter performing all of the necessary survival tasks.
“How, if possible, can I pass Charybdis or fight of Scylla when she raids my crew?” (930). Like Odysseus, I manifested a determination when it came to achieving a new PR in cross country. I worked harder in practice, started eating healthier, and fought against the pain and urge to walk at the following meet. My determination paid off because I knocked off around two minutes off of my previous PR. Along with achieving a new PR, I demonstrated determination when I wanted to start a snowmobiling youth program in the state of Iowa.
(I somewhat dislike my sister for many miscellaneous reasons, such as her wonderful personality.) Regardless, we started our day, going up and down and up and down and up and down the hill. We flew through the snow, through easy blue square trails, following our teacher in a curved line of follow the leader, like ducklings following their mother. We ate lunch, and continued our consecutive runs. On the next ski down, we decided to go down a different trail, a pretty icy trail, slightly harder to ski on.
Even though he used his hatchet, he dove down to get it and he dragged to the raft. He also was smart enough to come up with the plan and think out cutting the metal and getting the pack. Though he was just awarded more supplies for completing the task, he proves that he is his most valuable asset. To conclude, in the book Hatchet, Brian, the sole survivor of a plane crash, survives in the Canadian wilderness by himself and learn that he is his most valuable asset. This is the main theme of the story and is strongly shown when he flies and lands the plane, when he makes fire, and when he retrieves the survival pack from the icy depths of the lake.

Fitzgerald uses seasons to help further with the mood of the story. “In the winter, he frequently skis over the snow-covered fairways, a landscape that fills him with melancholy” (“Winter Dreams”). The use of winter is to show things dying off due to the cold. Dexter’s Winter dream has died off and with him skiing over the snow-covered golf course he is remembering his past. “Summer, fall, winter, spring, another summer, another fall—so much he had given of his active life to the incorrigible lips of Judy Jones” (Fitzgerald).
Life is always full of meaningful memories, some memories fade as time goes on and others stay forever. It’s these memories and experiences that make us who we are and make us stand out in a crowd of millions. A memory that I will always cherish is the first time that I began ice skating, I was four years old then. I was watching television with my parents and I saw a girl gliding gracefully across the ice, she was doing jumps, spins, and splits in the air. I thought that she looked amazing preforming in front of thousands people in an arena.

Herbs primary audience is the players in the locker room and the secondary audience is everyone who watched it after the game was over or years later to use as motivation. The speech was relatively short but to the point and he got the players persuaded to believing that they could win the game.
