Childhood Memories of Grampi and the Steamboat Cabin

- The sun shone brightly, with tall, perfectly placed trees casting shadows upon his delicate skin. The horse trotted slowly and smoothly as I gazed into the eyes of prince charming. For years my family followed a tradition of going up to the Steamboat cabin at least every other weekend. I'd ride up with my grami and grampi asking the famous question "are we there yet" every five minutes, although I always knew when we were getting close. I could see the tall trees that lined the road from miles down the road....   [tags: Descriptive Essay About A Place]

Descriptive Essay - Our Mountain Cabin

- Our Mountain Cabin The ruckus from the bottom of the truck is unbearable, because of the noise and excessive shaking. As we slowly climbed the mountain road to reach our lovely cabin, it seemed almost impossible to reach the top, but every time we reached it safely. The rocks and deep potholes shook the truck and the people in it, like a paint mixer. Every window in the truck was rolled down so we could have some leverage to hold on and not loose our grip we needed so greatly. The fresh clean mountain air entered the truck; it smelt as if we were lost: nowhere close to home....   [tags: Descriptive Essay, Descriptive Writing]

Blake Mycoskie: Chief Shoegiver

- "I always thought I'd spend the first half of my life making money and the second half giving it away. I never thought I could do both at the same time." (Mustafa C2) This is what Blake Mycoskie, founder of the TOMS organization, says of his actions-merely giving money away. But it's so much more than that. A now widespread, well-known organization, it is safe to say that Blake Mycoskie is changing the lives of many families and many children with his concept of "buy one, give one free" TOMS. Originally born in Nashville, Tennessee, Mycoskie moved to Arlington, Texas at the age of six, then to Orange, California when he was just ten....   [tags: Personal Profile Blake Mycoskie TOMS]

War, Peace, the Homefront, and Uncle Sam

- War, Peace, the Homefront, and Uncle Sam I. In our house when I was growing up, there were three WWI posters that my great aunt had saved in her attic. My father rescued and framed them, hanging the posters in the hallway at the top of the stairs. I walked past them on the way to my room which was at the end of this hallway. There was no way I could avoid Uncle Sam trying to recruit me every time I went up the stairs. He never budged, determined to enlist me before I could even read. I had the sense that he was measuring every ounce of my patriotism: I Want YOU for US Army, he called out, pointing and glaring straight at me as I made my way up the stairs....   [tags: Personal Narrative Writing]

Richard Wright’s Misperception of Zora Neale Hurston’s Their Eyes Were Watching God

Despite the fact that they are the same color and lived during the same time period, they do not have much else in common. On the one hand is Hurston, a female writer who indulges in black art and culture and creates subtle messages throughout her most famous novel, Their Eyes Were Watching God. On the other hand is Wright, who is a male writer who demonstrates that whites do not like black people, nor will they ever except for when they are in the condition “…America likes to see the Negro live: between laughter and tears....   [tags: The Native Son, Uncle Tom’s Children]

Character Anaylsis of Uncle Jake in The Sky Fisherman by Craig Lesley

- In The Sky Fisherman by Craig Lesley, Uncle Jake is a man who lives for the sake of others. He is a hero to Culver. Uncle Jake is considered a hero because he saves Culver from being deprived of a father. Jake being a father figure and role model for Culver helped him adapt to his new journey in Gateway.
