I think Hatchet tells the story better. Because it gave more details for example ,when Brian found blueberries you can could imagine him crushing, them with his teeth and swallowing the sweet juice. In A Cry In A Wild he just eats them. And when Brian had a dream of his dad and Terry of fire that was great foreshadowing. In A Cry In The Wild there was no dream not even a Terry.

But during is days in the wild Brian changed a lot . First Brian became Tanner because he was in the sun a lot. He sight got better because when he was looking for the fool birds, he realized he had to look for the shape of them not the color.
How would you change if you had to survive in the wilderness for almost two months? I will tell you how Brian Robeson changed when he had to survive in the wild. Some of the changes he went through were weight loss, he was better able to observe and to solve problems, he was better able to survive, and that he was amazed at everyday life are just some of the ways he changed. First, one way Brian changed is that he experienced weight loss. In the epilogue, the author stated that Brian lost seventeen percent of his body weight.

In chapter six of “The Abstract Wild” by Jack Turner the main purpose is to talk about the differences in “wildness” and “wilderness”. Also it talks about how the wild is not wild enough. This chapter starts out with Turner stating a quote from Thoreau’s essay “Walking”. What Turner thinks is important about this quote is the misinterpretation that almost everyone has with it. In the quote
To begin with, I suggest that the movie, “ A Cry In The Wild “ does a better job of telling the story than the book, “Hatchet “because it gives us more details. Next, I say this because in the movie, “A Cry In The Wild” it shows me that Brain did everything that he could do to survive, like when he built a shelter like in, and it can allow you to see what it was really like. In addition, But in the book, “Hatchet” it only said he built his shelter out of wood, but in the movie it gave you plenty of details on how Brian made his shelter. Also ,when he was trapped in the plane the book only said that he only kicked the windshield and got out, but in the movie, “ A Cry In The Wild” it gave more details of how he got out the plane.

Steinbeck uses Crooks to highlight the cruel treatment that black people had endured in the 1930s.
Preface: Through the course of this winter semester, Composition 106 has taught me many things in different aspects which include, learning about myself, knowing how far I came as a person, developing better writing and expressing strategies, and lastly reading skills.

Chris 's story remains an example to many people including me as it intends to motivate young readers to shed society 's materialism and do what makes them happy by providing justification for Chris 's actions. Reading about some writing skills has helped me with many of the skills I resemble now, in terms of voice, tone, punctuate, and etc... Writing essays and especially about our personal life has not only taught me to develop
Book Review Essay Where the Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak and Don’t Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus! by Mo Williams are both picture books that encompass two very different styles within the picture book genre of children’s literature. Even though both picture books were written roughly for the same age group and both received Caldecott Awards, Where the Wild Things Are is a book that captures the attention of any reader, regardless of age, and is a timeless classic that is “arguably the single greatest picture book ever created” (Hotspur Closser, Bird).

In the text ‘ Savage or Solitary? : The Wild Child and Rousseau’s Man of Nature’ by Nancy Yousef she explores how feral children function after being in the wild to fend for themselves. These children are seen as wild animals and when they are contained, they are constantly being studied to see if they are capable of obtaining what is seen as ‘normal’ societal behavior that one would possess. In the text, it looks at how a boy named Victor was found in the wild and when he was finally contained, anthropologists believed this was fascinating because they wanted to see if it was possible to develop what is seen as normal human behavior and since he had not learned this previously, they believed he was a blank slate.
It is Brian’s reliance on others that makes him weak. In the book “hatchet” Brian is forced to survive in the Canadian wilderness. After the piolet suffers a fatal heart attack Brian crashes the plane and must rely on his knowledge and environment to survive. There are many reasons Brian’s reliance on other people makes him weak. Many of the reasons he survives it because of other things people have done like the hatchet was not brought or intended to because his mother gave it to him before the flight which he then forgot that he had it on him.
