I went down there to visit last year and my cousins are the best bow hunters in the state of New Jersey. In the I.B.O tournaments the last three years one of them has come in first and the other in second every year. They were so happy that I wanted to start bow hunting they set me up and gave me all the goods. They brought me out hunting and in twenty minutes one of them had a doe. Since then I have been buying all the equipment I need and practicing every week.
It is not uncommon for several hundred animals to drown by falling through thin ice. The wood bison was never an organism with an extremely large population. In the 1800’s, it was estimated that the population was at about 168,000 animals. They were almost hunted to extinction in the 19th century. In fact, by 1893, it was estimated that only 250 wood bison existed.

Sacajawea is known as the Indian women who led Lewis and Clark on their famous expedition to explore the Louisiana Purchase and find the path that led to the Pacific Ocean. Born into the Shoshone tribe on their land of the Rocky Mountains, she was born in the lovely state of Idaho in 1788. Her story has been told all over the world in different countries and in many different ways. No one actually knows the real story of her life since all of her sources have been mixed up and combined into a different story. Sacajawea was shaped by three major events in different stages of her life ("Sacajawea").
“Like his mother, ambitious to get rich quick, London joined the Klondike gold rush and spent the winter of 1897 in the Yukon, where he found little gold but a rich vein of narrative material that he would mine lucratively in his meteoric rise to literary fame” (Beauchamp).

(Glass, 529) Well it was the gold rush of eighteen ninety eight, many looked north for a way to get rich easy, some looked for adventures, but there were not many of those. Jack London portrays the hard lives of the adventurers who went to the Klondike River valley for gold, but got a lot more than they burgeoned for. In one of the stories, from a collection called "The Son of the Wolf", Jack London described a mad hunt for gold. A person enters the yet innocent soil, near a stream, and as soon as he does, starts digging hungrily for gold. He finds some, but not even enough to keep, so he throws it away.
The westward movement was a time period from the 1840’s to the 1860’s, where the Americans traveled west for search of land and/or gold. In this essay, you will read about the wagon trails, Manifest Destiny, people, medicine, religion, politics, railroads, and the gold rush. There were numerous reasons of why people came west on the trails. Many wanted land, which was free as long as you settled and farmed on it. Others sought gold, considered an easy way to get rich.
The first wagon train was led by John Bidwell, the organizer of the Western Emigration Society. Bidwell let the pioneers across the Rockies, a party of 69 adults and children who divided into two groups after crossing. One group headed north into Oregon, while the other, led by Bidwell continued west to California. By 1842, the currency system of the Republic of Texas was in such dire straits that even the government would not accept redbacks for payment of taxes. Other plans were attempted to get the republic fiscal house in order, but these plans achieved only slightly better results.
The Chibcha Tribe’s past set a series of events that led to the exploration of South America. Both the English and Spanish explorers had high hopes for the unknown land, however, what they found did not live up to their expectations. The thought of great wealth drove these explorers to find vast lands and rivers that they marked in their name, and still do to this day. Although El Dorado was never found, its faint existence made history, inviting numerous expeditions to explore an unmarked part of the world.
His photos slowly made their way around the country, amazing people with the beauty of this piece of land. They called for its protection, even as the nation was slowly being torn apart by the civil war between the Union and Confederacy. With the Natives being pulled off of their land, the movement to save the lands they previously occupied was in danger. Niagara Falls in New York had already been nearly devastated, and Yosemite might be soon to follow in a short period of time, if Hutchings had his way. People gave back to the goal of protecting the land and towards building the national park system, but the man who truly brought this movement forward to create this first park was John Muir a naturalist who had studied “geology and botany at the University of Wisconsin” (pbs.org, 2009),
