Grass and twigs
The twenty dollar bill in his pocket
Birch bark peelings
The fire would keep away animals like the porcupine.
The smoke from the fire kept the mosquitoes away.
Brian could heat his raspberries on the fire.
Brian could build a signal fire.
Only a few minutes to build after he learned the hatchet made sparks on the flint stone
Several days of hard work to build
A large part of the day to get started trying different kinds of kindling
A few hours using only grass and twigs as kindling
His fire was about to go out
He was about to get wet from the rain
A deer was getting into his raspberries
His jacket was blowing away
An airplane flying overhead
A city boy
Knew he could have soup
Now had food
Remembered how to make a hammock
Brian had seen a television show about sea turtles.
Brian had read a book in science class about sea turtles.

Worms dipped in ketchup
Chocolate covered ants
A raw egg with his milk
White and round like ping pong balls
Blue and oval like robin eggs
Brown and oval like chicken eggs
Green and spotted like moldy cheese
Half the eggs
All seventeen eggs
Only one egg
Six eggs and saved the rest
The Huge Bird
The Wonders of Fire
The Wolf in the Forest
A Wonderful Meal
A Sleepless Night
