He swung the flashlight across the corn field and thought he saw movement. "Come on outta there or I'll shoot!" He had his hand on his holster but couldn't imagine actually drawing it. "Muley! If that's you, I don't want to see your stinkin self slinkin' around this farm no more!" He sat down heavily on the vinyl seat of the cruiser, pushed the gear selector into reverse and began to back away.

"Well now that was swell," Whitey said his group of friends surrounding him. "Those houses needed to be broken for all them houses are just abondoned ol' houses now anyways," he continued. He thought for a minute, "I've got another idea," he exclaimed. "I'm gonna write a message on the wall like from a ghost. Then the school'll be closed for its haunted." (116)

Silence. The wind finally stops and the strange sound of nothingness wakes me from a deep sleep. I lay in bed wondering if father will be kinder now that the dust has stopped. Maybe the crops will start growing again and I won't go to bed hungry every night. My stomach growls at the thought of food. I smile with the hope of tomorrow as I fall back asleep listening to the comforting absence of noise.

"They tell me you're a good hand with a truck," said Tom. I am, Al thought. I know all that a feller ought to, and then some. Maybe I shouldn't say it like that, though. Tom might think I'm boasting too much. "I don't know nothin' much about it.

"How rude," the turtle thought as he had been flipped over by the young man's vehicle. He was now on his back, legs flailing as wildly as a turtle's legs could flail, the seed he had been carrying in his mouth laying next to him.

"There was a family of twelve and they were forced off the land. They had no car. They built a trailer out of junk and loaded it with their possessions. They pulled it out to the side of 66 and waited. And pretty soon a sedan picked them up. Five of them rode in the sedan and seven on the trailer, and a dog on the trailer. They got to California in two jumps."

I stood next to Ma with my toes diggin' in the dirt, listening to Pa talk to the tractor man. He looks like an alien. Like he was sent here from another planet to take over ours. For some reason this man wants us to leave our home. My Pa keeps talking something about the bank being a monster. Why would the bank want us to leave our home? The alien man took off on his tractor and continued destroying the earth. I just stood there next to Ma and Pa, his rifle in his hand, staring at the tractor man.

On page 15, chapter 3, the turtle is hit by a car, but obviously doesn't have a voice because it is an animal. But, I decided to give the turtle a voice because I think the turtle has an important roll in the novel and I feel like the turtle is very symbolic.

(page 110) "I thought how you'd be goin', an' I'd maybe say good-by." I said through the lump in my throat. I started thinking about my family as ol' Tom started talking about packing. I thought of my wife, how much I miss her when I'm hiding from the deputy, 'cause I know she'd laugh. I thought of my kids, how I wish I was with them; they must be getting so big now. An' the wife, she's too easy on them. They ain't gonna have no work ethic without me to hound 'em...

"It ain't no use," I said. "I'm sad, but I can't he'p it. I got to go." As I turned downstream, I felt relieved, as if a great weight had been removed from my shoulders, but also a little empty, as if I was leaving behind a piece of myself that I'd never been without before. In that moment, I considered turning around, but instead I walked on, to the next chapter of my life.
