The chapter I found most important is chapter eight because Uncle Jack felt that it was his fault his woman past away. Uncle Jack spent all his time making it up to somebody by giving kids stuff or dropping a sack of food on somebody’s porch. He felt unhappy even when giving everything he had away. The theme I saw in this everyone doesn’t have knowledge that everyone must go at some point in time. It is no one’s fault but it was their time to go. We shouldn’t beat ourselves up over it.
One passage from my active reading is “I ain’t a-goin’. This country ain’t no good, but it’s my country. No, you all go ahead. I’ll jus’ stay right here where I b’long.” in chapter 10 because Grampa was too proud to leave.
