Summary Chapter 10 Brian takes such comfort from the fire that he feels reluctant to stray from it.
Knowing he will need to keep the fire going, he spends the afternoon gathering wood for the night and the coming days, falling into a deep sleep when he completes his work. A noise awakens him in the middle of the night, but nothing enters his shelter and he dozes off again. In the morning he finds tracks to and from the lake.
Following them in the sand, Brian comes to a pile where many eggs lie; a turtle had come up from the water to lay its eggs.
Most importantly, it strikes Brian him that the eggs provide him with a more substantial kind of food than he has yet eaten. Thinking of his Uncle Carter, who used to eat raw eggs in the morning, he decides that he needs nourishment badly enough to do so himself.
Overcoming the odd taste, Brian eats several eggs and, saving the others, decides to eat one a day. Thinking of the searchers, Brian hopes they will soon rescue him. Chapter 11 Brian occupies himself by storing the eggs, cleaning his camp, and stacking wood; these activities help keep him from falling into depression.
Seeing his reflection in the lake, Brian notes how his body has changed. His extra weight has disappeared and his skin has browned.
More significantly, however, he notes the mental transformation he has undergone. He observes his surroundings with a new keenness, his senses honed to pick up on the goings-on of the woods.
His mind and body have also made a connection that had not existed before his stay in the woods. Standing atop a bluff overlooking the lake, the beauty of the lake and woods overwhelm him. He soon has an important realization that he can catch fish in the lake for food.
Upon closer inspection, he notices that the lake appears full of fish of many kinds.
Initially attempting to catch them with his bare hands, Brian soon concludes he needs some sort of fish spear. Chapter 12 Brian spends many hours perfecting his fish spear, but in the end it fails to help him catch any fish. In need of a way to send the spear into the water, Brian decides to make a bow and arrow.
While searching for wood, Brian almost steps on a bird and it flies up in a flurry of feathers. It occurs to Brian to try to catch these birds, slightly smaller than chickens, which he calls "foolbirds. Gesturing and yelling at the top of his lungs, Brian falls into despair and hopelessness when the plane flies past him and away into the horizon.
He begins to lose faith that he will ever see his family and friends again, and experiences profound emptiness and loneliness. Analysis The contrast between urban and wilderness environments reappears in these chapters. Earlier in the novel, this contrast revolved mostly around Brian's adjustment to the woods.
He had to become self-sufficient and only then appreciated the conveniences of urban life. In these chapters, however, Brian has adjusted to his new life, and can look back on the person he was before the plane crash with some distance.
While he investigates the turtle tracks, Brian demonstrates his consciousness of his urban habits. Paulsen writes, "He smiled. City boy, he thought. Oh, you city boy with your city ways—he made a mirror in his mind, a mirror of himself, and saw how he must look.
City boy with your city ways sitting in the sand trying to read the tracks and not knowing, not understanding.Days Four-Thirteen: the connections they make in their final essay using the rubric.
