Brian was left only with his clothing and a hatchet that hung from his belt. Brian began to set up a camp for himself. ? At one time in the far past it had been scooped by something, probably a glacier, and this scooping had left a kind of sideways bowl, back in under a ledge. It wasn?t deep, not a cave, but it was smooth and made a perfect roof and he could almost stand in under the ledge?(P 57). Brian began to hunt for food and found only berries and drank from the lake for water. Brian eventually created a spear to catch fish and other small animals. This all progressed very slowly. Brian also eventually found out how to make a fire created by sparks from his hatchet and a rock striking together. Brian lived for nearly two months in the woods all alone. Each day that Brian lived he discovered or learned something new. He was living pretty well when he ran into a couple of unexplainable disasters. First he had shot a bird with a bow that he made of a stick and his shoelace. He was cleaning the bird and his tools in the lake when a moose trampled on him and tried to kill him. The moose pushed him down in the water and wouldn?t let him up. ? It was a cow and she had no horns, but
Nature has been cheated by the outstanding abilities of Coyote. However, the situation does not end like that. The forces of nature triumph once again in order to show a tale's moral. Bear acts in a more natural way. He finally concludes the cycle that his character was intended for, but not before showing an initial naïve personality. This situation creates a first impression on the reader/listener, implying that good convincing skills can defeat what is naturally expected to happen. However, and with full intention of developing a tale moral, these convincing skills only take effect on a temporary basis. The message this tale wants to issue is that nature might be unaware for some time, but at the end, it always defeats any intention of shortcutting the life cycle. This moral is among the most usual used in Native American coyote stories, which were normally told to audiences of young and old people alike. They were sometimes told to teach about cosmology, as instructional stories for the young, to explain history, and sometimes just for the sake of telling and listening to a funny story. In all these different cases, Coyote stories are a reflection for our own lives, pointing out the smallest miseries and the biggest strengths of humans. Unfortunately for him, in the present tale, Coyote serves as the example of a negative attitude, which finally always leads to a tragic end.
Embers flew from the campfire, and into the starry night sky; meanwhile, the campers, Jackie, Carl, and Jim, sat close to it for warmth. “Now who's ready for a campfire story?” said Jackie. “You can sometimes go a little overboard, so Carl is taking the wheel.” Carl continued, “Once upon a time” Jim screams, and Carl rolls his eyes at Jim, “May I proceed,” He responds rhetorically. By the time Carl finishes the scary story, Jim has already dashed into the tent, startling his dog, a basset hound named Roxy. Carl along with Jackie look at each other in regretful worry, as they walk towards Jim's tent.

While The Underland Chronicles made Collins a well-known author, her next series in ratcheted up her celebrity status. As Collins later recalled, The Hunger Games trilogy was born while she was watching television late one night. Flipping through the channels, Collins was suddenly struck by the lack of distinction between reality TV and coverage of the Iraq war. "We have so much programming coming at us all the time," she says. "Is it too much? Are we becoming desensitized to the entire experience? . . .I can't believe a certain amount of that isn't happening."

The cattle drive was going as planned getting about 10-15 miles a day to get to a farm where they would get money for bringing the cattle.

When the storm was over they noticed that they had been missing 50 cows this was the worse thing they could ever encounter on the drive. So before going any further the 5 cowboys split up why one stays to watch the cattle. The four cowboys all came back that night with just 34 of the cows. The cowboys head on trying to find the cows again and still found nothing but in the distance there was a cliff leading to a valley. When they arrived to the valley to see where the cows were they saw nothing but 3 dead cows on the ground of that valley. When they went on there way again they saw nothing but flat land and the rest of their cattle this made the cowboys really happy that they could still get most of their cattle drive there safely. When they got to the farm the farmer gave them their money were they split between the 5 of them. Then they go to back home to see there children
As they walk up the driveway, he hears a dog start to bark and run toward them. The boy says, “ This is Toby! He's my own dog. I feed him, bath him, even sleep with him” He sits there, staring at the boy laughing and petting toby. He thinks about how his mom used to play and rub on him too. He then is suddenly interrupted by the boys mom. She shouted, “ Ronnie, who the hell is this boy? He ain’t one of your school friends?” The boy responds, “ No momma, this here is some boy I found in the woods.” His mom responded, “ Okay, y'all boys need to get in the house and clean up, suppers in thirty minutes.” He stood there frozen, supposed by the fact that the mom didn't think twice about some random boy coming over. The boy then waved him down to go inside and clean up. When he went upstairs, he noticed all the deer heads on the wall. Once he got upstairs, he ran to he sink. He put his hands into a bowl, scooping water into his mouth. Once he got some water, he took his clothes off and hopped into the tub. He sat there, contemplating why he didn't turn around.

He clutched his rifle ready to defend himself, all then a deer the size of two of him runs out into the field. He hasn't eaten meat in almost two months, He had to land a perfect shot. He makes a noise to stop the deer, then levels his rifle, takes a deep breath in squeezes the trigger and lets the bullet fly. He lands a perfect shot dropping the deer immediately. As he was raging the deer back to his cabin, he thought to himself “this can last me the whole year”. As he put a part of the meat on the fire he remembered he needs to get water from the pond. He picks up his bucket and starts to walk to the pond. As he gets there it is starting to turn dark and he realizes he needs to hurry. He puts the water in his bucket and makes his way back. As he is about halfway to his house He smells something. “ Is that smoke?.” he says questioning himself.

After about two hours of running from pond to cabin he finally put it
And then, the fox huffed and puffed and nothing happened. He kept huffing and puffing, and not before long, he became dizzy. He couldn’t blow down the goddamn brick house down. What a stupid wolf, he could’ve just broke the door down. Anyways, the crummy wolf got really mad, but his brain couldn’t think of anything to do. Eventually the wolf tried to jump in through the chimney that was one helluva stupid decision. The 3 little Pigs put a pot in the chimney, and that idiot wolf jumped in.
