In these wagons, there were copious amounts of supplies to last the travelers all the way to their locations. These supplies were kept safe and many pioneers worried that Native Americans would steal their goods from them, “but in fact Indian attacks on wagon trains were rare, despite the settlers' fears”(Linge OL). This
The men on the ranch travel by themselves and have no real connections to each other. Curley's wife spends her days wandering around the ranch, hoping someone will be open to having a conversation with. Crooks is completely isolate and has to live in a small room next to the barn because he has a different skin tone compared to all the ranch workers. Lastly, Candy feels lonely and isolated since he is separated from the other men after losing his hand and losing his dog. I think one of the morals of the story is that everyone needs someone to talk to in order to survive.
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. They could have even prevented Vick’s death since Ky, Eli, and Vick visited the empty township before Vick died and if the farmers were there, they could have provided information and/or help to prevent Vick’s death.
Primitive instincts is a major theme when one closely examines the changes Buck undergoes from a civilized dog into a wild dog. Buck was raised in a lavish lifestyle, however when he is kidnapped this all changes. Alaska's harsh environment brings out Buck's primitive instincts buried deep within him. It is necessary for these traits to be expressed because surviving is key in Alaska and living in California, these traits would never have been seen. The wilderness appeals to Buck's new wild side and he goes out there to live with the other wild animals when his owner dies.
“And on the 9th day, after God made a farmer, God looked down on his planned paradise and needed someone to show off his prized creations. So, God made a Stock Show Kid.”- Paul Harvey Showing livestock has many benefits people don’t realize. Have you ever thought about them?
Many voyages to American to retrieve goods, caused the trade of goods, animals, plants, and ideas. This movement is known as the Columbian Exchange. Although goods, animals, and such are harmless the most important thing that was brought to America was “Old World” diseases. Just like the redwood forest, that once stretched from the Rockies to the Pacific, and the once numerous bison, the Native Americans almost disappeared. When new diseases were introduced to the Natives, their bodies weren’t able to fight them off.
Manuals attempted to prompt explorers, however they were frequently problematic. In 1846, the Donner Party set out from Illinois furnished with one such manual, which gave them such misinformation that the gathering got itself snowbound in the High Sierra. The gathering at last came to its destination in California strictly when swinging to savagery with a specific end goal to
Cadet camp was an amazing experience however instead of being 8 days this year it was 7, this was due to the weather; the day before our departure the area flooded quite a bit, therefore, it was postponed. So instead of leaving on Friday morning, we left on Saturday morning. I was there at 5:45 in the morning as I was a bus officer, this was a huge responsibility which included forming up the whole bus group in a single file in alphabetical order, ensuring they stayed that way which at times they didn't because they wanted to go talk to friends etc., ensuring everybody was accounted for, it was quite frustrating at times as I did have to repeat orders quite a bit. However, I managed to get it done, and by the time we had to leave everyone was
I remember us strolling through the streets late night the day before our flight, when she suddenly asked, '' Do you want to stay? '' Deep inside of my heart I wanted to, but I was hesitating. I was terrified of obscure future; nevertheless, we have missed the flight the next day, intentionally. I still remember that feeling of emptyness inside of me that day-it was hard decision. Larisa and I have found a small room for rent in Brooklyn.
And with my recent move to a house a block away from the LA river bike path, I biked 10 miles, every Saturday, to the Atwater farmers market. However, once the rainfall increased the la river was threatening to overflow the large portions of the path were closed down. Proceeding through the cut fence, in to the closed portions, takes bikers into a homeless shantytown, where personally I have had frightening interactions with some of the residents. Trapped between the LA River and the 5 freeway my bike routes were limited and my frequent rides dwindled to an end. I missed the energy and the clarity that I gained from my rides; however I put off finding another path for weeks.
Fields as far as the eye could see of long, lush grass with native Americans and bison enjoying life. The fields were amazing before the settlers came with the 6 foot tall prairie grass that had 9 feet tightly woven roots. Prairie grass could handle stampedes of bisons the boiling sun and the bone dry drought that that part of the country went through. Grass that could survive fire from lightning hadn’t been harmed until the early 1800’s Furthermore, ripping out one of the most sustainable plants would be a mistake worse than dropping a nuke.
Our encounter with the Black Feet Indians was very hostile. Only because Lewis had mistaken them for the Atsina tribe. Now the tribe lived I T-Pees and canopies type homes. They would actually put buffalo fur on the sides of their homes to stop wind and keep them warm. There original residents where the Northern Plains.
Exercise 7-13 I have to announce everyone in the group that we will not be able to meet the June 1 commitment to ship 100 operating tables to Southeast Surgical Supplies. To be clear, we only have 30 tables on hand as a report of this morning. However, this is not our fault entirely. Six months ago, purchasing warned us about shrinking supplies and suggested we buy as much as we could in advance for the next 12 months. We tried to follow their advice, but we were never be able to buy supplies in advance due to company’s policy about never buying more than three months worth of materials in advance.
