Peyton solves this problem with the help of Preacher Henry, who provides her with some helpful information that she needs to catch the bass. Frank writes, “‘How would I get them? Nobody’s been able to net any bass bait - no shiners.’ ‘That’s the trouble,’ Preacher said. ‘The little fish he gets hot too and so he’s out there in the middle deep…’ Peyton
“For Pai, the danger is most obviously manifested in her near-death at sea, symbolising the potential destruction of her tribe, should her grandfather remain stubborn”(Crittenden, 2015, p. 88). In the end, the act of Pai climbing the largest of the beached whales, which has a stong symbolism as that whale is thought to be the whale that brough the
“The Blue Water Djinn” by Tea Obreht is about the loss of innocence of Jack with the transition into adolescence.

Although they hit some bumps along the way that could have destroyed their new ecosystem, fly-fishing was there to stay. (Fly 134-152). Hoke witnessed something amazing: “Cloaked in different colors, algae green waders worn over the usual colored gang clothes, I watched these boys at peace in a greater wilderness” (Fly 152). Men so accustomed to violence and pain suddenly found themselves awash in the stark beauty of God’s creation; hearts turned hot with rage by a lifetime of ache, found relief in the cool wash of the river over their troubled
Huck would be characterized as a proponent of individuality rather than conformity. Furthermore, Huck did not apprehend slavery and its contribution to productivity. Slavery is so inhumane and blacks should have just as much rights as whites. Towards the end of the novel, Huck’s true innocence is shown when he helps Jim escape his confinement at the Phelps’ house. Innocence got the better of him since he was debating whether he should inform Ms. Watson about Jim’s dilemma or should he save him.
The reason it structured like this was for the reader to get different versions of the story from different characters. This is why it's called a story within a story. In the novel it states,” We are unfashioned creatures, but half made up, if one wiser, better, dearer than ourselves such a friend ought to be do not lend his aid to perfectionate our weak and faulty natures. (Shelley, 14) This is Walton showing similar feelings the creature had.
Atticus and Juror 8 did what they believed was right even when society tried to shut them down. In To Kill a Mockingbird, Atticus stood up for what he believed was right even if he was the only white man in the court fighting for a black man's life. Atticus said, "I'm no idealist to believe firmly in the integrity of our courts and in the jury system—that is no ideal to me, it is a living, working reality. Gentlemen, a court is no better than each man of you sitting before me on this jury. A court is only as sound as its jury, and a jury is only as sound as the men who make it up.
Another time Atticus demonstrates this is when the trial in which he is defending a black man is drawing to a close. When Atticus is pleading to the jury he makes this statement regarding fairness, “I am confident that you gentlemen will review without passion the evidence you have heard, come to a decision and restore this defendant to his family. In the name of [G-d], do your duty” (275). This seems like standard closing remarks but in this context, it means to judge the case without the racism one would expect from an all-white jury. This is a public defence of minorities, once again, a repeated event by Atticus.

I am reading “The Bass, The River, and Sheila Mant” by W. D. Wetherell, and I am on page 3. So far this book is about a boy who falls in love a girl who lives next door. He takes the girl out on a boat ride to a concert but realizes that he forgot to take his fishing line off of the boat until a very large bass comes along and pulls on his line. He tries to hide the fish on the line, because he knows that Sheila does not like to fish so he’s trying to hide the evidence. In this journal I will be questioning and connecting.
That just proves that blacks are just as good or even better than whites. In both the movie and the book, another key similarity is, if you want something bad enough and if you are willing to work hard, you can accomplish anything. In the story and the book, all characters fight through the segregation to achieve the goal they set out for. The Little Rock Nine endured, death threats, mental and physical beatings, fear, anger, and so much more just to prove that blacks are equal to whites and that they should be treated equally. In the end, they persevered and made a name not just for themselves, but for the black community.
