Would the statement, all heroes and heroines are originated from the same basis be true? Most likely, ones favorite hero novel would follow the hero’s journey which is the cycle of the hero’s adventure involving different archetypes. A hero novel does not necessarily have to involve supernatural powers and the hero does not necessarily have to save the world; a hero can go through the hero’s journey to save one person or to reveal a hidden truth. If a story follows the hero’s journey, it includes the three categories of the archetypes—character, place, event. Midwinterblood written by Marcus Sedgwick is one example of a novel that fits into the hero’s journey archetype.
That night Laura is awoken by the loud sound of howling wolves. As she looks out her window with Pa they see half a dozen wolves staring back at them. As Laura settles back to sleep Pa tells her that he and Jack will keep their family safe from the wolves. As the Ingalls continue to set up house Mary and Laura explore their environment, spending their days chasing snakes and playing in the wild grass. One morning as Pa goes out hunting he chains up Jack so that he will not follow him.
Halfway through they went back so she went with them to make sure they were safe. Then she traveled alone back to Pennsylvania it was 90 miles that she had to walk. When she got there she said “When I found I had crossed that line, I looked at my hands to see if I was the same person. There was such a glory over everything; the sun came like gold through the trees, and over the
A hero’s journey then and now The Hero's Journey The hero’s journey is a path of 12 steps in which the hero finds himself passing through trouble and achieving his purpose, his destiny.. There are many versions of the hero's journey one of them is the hollywood kind where the hero starts in the normal world In which he is considered as a nobody.

I reach the top of the fence… and let myself drop twenty feet to the ground” (438-439). Surviving the drop, Lena is uncontrolled due to her bravery; a trait which she never used to have. Indeed, the thought of the unknown terrifies Lena, for a short period she is even afraid of Alex. Of course, Lena surpesses her cowardice when it comes to Alex as she does in the face of many other challenges. When Alex confides in Lena that he is not actually cured, that he comes from the Wilds, all she can bring herself to do is run away.
In The Giver by Lois Lowry, the main character, Jonas, can undoubtedly be considered a hero. Jonas’ actions throughout The Giver are a quality example of the archetypal pattern of the Hero’s journey, and to depict this I used a variety of text, illustration, and color throughout my graphic novel. Jonas undergoes all three stages of the hero’s journey throughout the novel. He experiences the first step in this journey, the call to adventure, when he is selected to be the Receiver of Memory. Jonas, like most archetypal heroes during this step, notes that he believes that his life will change due to this call to a mysterious adventure.
