The Adventures of Buck, Farah, and Piper
Farah Ahmedi walked several miles through desert mountains to escape to Pakistan. Piper McCloud used teamwork, determination, and imagination to escape I.N.S.A.N.E and keep her ability to fly. Buck undertook the mission of adapting to the wild, so he would be able to survive. However, all three were patient, determined, and used the help of others in order to achieve their goals.
Without the help of Ghulam Ali and a positive mind, Farah Ahmedi wouldn’t have been able to escape Pakistan.

As the text states, “I think Piper’s right. I say we escape” (Forester 209). Additionally, “The escape was far from easy” (Forester 210).

Buck was beat and traded constantly for no reason, and even though it was very difficult, he fought back to survive. As the text states, “Buck had sprung in on the instant; and at the end of the three hundred yards, amid a mad swirl of water, he overhauled Thornton” (London 77). This proves that Buck had so much confidence and determination that he didn’t even hesitate to jump into a roaring lake and risk his life to save his owner, John Thornton. As London states, “Buck stood and looked on, the successful champion, the dominant primordial beast who had made his kill and found it good” (40). Buck was very successful, and became the leader of the wolf pack and a great example of a wolf adapted to the
