Thomas runs away from the Mission School and returns to his mountain home. When he arrives he expects to find his brother the bear and the rest of his animal family, but instead he finds a “charred circle” (70) where his lodge used to be. Tom then “…stood among the ashes and whispered the sorrow chant…For small griefs you shout, but for the big griefs you whisper or say nothing. The big griefs must be borne alone, inside” (70.) He knows that it was Blue Elk who did it because there is not one item of worth left behind, not even the knife Tom’s mother gave him.

Nat Swanson is an outlaw who is not just self-sufficient in many areas of desert survival, but also prefers to be alone, except with a Indian dog that follows him around; a personality which resulted from the decision he made when he was fourteen to work only for himself, after the slaughter of his entire family when he was only eight. We first learn of his initial tendency to isolate himself from others at the beginning of book, where he happens upon the upturned wagons of the ambush survivors. This is when he sees the face of a woman peering out from beneath the wagons, but chooses not to rescue her and resumes his journey to California on horseback. The following night he has nightmares induced by memories of the face, as indicated in the passage, “Swanson knew he had been dreaming… he knew it had something to do with the woman at the wagons.” As a
For example, Okonkwo a once respected and influential man ended up hanging himself. This is ironic due to the fact that in the beginning of the novel Okonkwo said, “Since I survived that year, I shall survive anything.” (talking about the year of bad crops). Obviously he was wrong about that considering he ended his own life at the end of the novel showing that in fact he could not survive anything, including the falling of the Ibo clan and his realization of being alone in his wish for war with the white missionaries and government. Likewise, Okonkwo never wanting to replicate his father, which he spent his whole life trying to prove, ended up being buried in the Evil Forest, the exact place his father was sent when he died. When things became rough for Okonkwo he decided to give up on life, which is something his father may have done.
