The authors devote half a page to describing nature in this chapter, page 45. They paint a picture of autumn, then early winter, by describing the geese flying overhead, the colors of the fall leaves, and the thin coats of ice on the puddles. It made me stop and picture nature, but I also wondered why the authors chose to put this into the book. The main point is whether or not Sam will return and whether the war is affecting the people of Redding. I wondered why the authors wanted the reader to picture nature as I read the description.
