After the buck impregnates the doe she will carry the fawn for six to nine months. She will choose a spot hidden from the other deer to give birth. After the doe gives birth she will eat the afterbirth, so no predators can smell it and find her hidden spot. Young deer called fawns stay hidden until they are able to walk well enough to follow their mother. Whitetail deer usually have twins but unfortunately sometimes one of them dies.
The author seems to tell a story about her grandmother and her basket that she always has with her. An example from the book would be “my grandmother had a little white oak basket, left from the farm, from years of keeping chickens, gathering eggs. My mama says it was her kitchen basket when they moved to town. It might have peaches in it, pot holders, roses, scissors in the bottom sometimes.” At the very end of this book was a little story the grandmother sang to her. It is like a verse that rhymes and repeats.
She was very private about her pregnancies. Before giving birth, she would say to Bessie and Sadie, “Now take the little ones…and don’t come back all day.” After the death of her husband Henry in 1928, Mama moved to New York with her daughters Sadie and Bessie. Bessie retired in 1950 in order to care for Mama, now frail but “still full of spunk, right up to the end” (Delany, Hearth 255). Mama died on June 2nd, 1956 at the age of 95. To partly get over Mama’s death, the daughters bought a house in Mount Vernon, New York, where they would spend their days honoring her
As a child she played games interviewing her corncob doll and the crows on the fence of her family's property. Winfrey later acknowledged her grandmother's influence, saying it was Hattie Mae who had encouraged her to speak in public and "gave me a positive sense of myself". Working in local media, she was both the youngest news anchor and the first black female news anchor at Nashville's WLAC-TV. She moved to Baltimore's
A doe will hide its fawn or fawns while she is gone to feed. The white spots on the young deer’s fur helps the deer blend in with its surroundings. A fawn bleats loudly, especially if a predator attacks it. They can respond in two different ways. The doe can fight the predator or get the predator to chase the mother instead of the fawn!
Curly pulls away knowing he had just taken a very fine deer. Later that night Curly returned with his friend Moe, his name for the time being, to retrieve the antlers from the deer he had shot earlier. They both exit the vehicle and
Family is not the same for everyone. As the reader sees in the poems, “Snapping Beans” by Lisa Parker and “Nighttime Fires” by Regina Barreca, the two families are not the same yet they play very similar roles in the lives of the main characters. In “Snapping Beans” the reader is being introduced to a young woman, who is returning home from college for the weekend. She is sitting on the front porch beside her grandmother when she is asked: “How’s school a-goin” (15). The young lady wants to tell
Her ritualistic life is shook up when she runs into a handsome young man who is hunting for birds. The unnamed man states that he is looking for the nest of the white heron and would give ten dollars to anyone who could show it to him. Desperate for
To me it’s a past time, an adrenalin rush, as well as a way to put extra food on the table. Deer hunting is a way to get in touch with true nature; it has been a way for people to provide food for their families for hundreds of years. Also deer are magnificent creatures and it’s amazing that they can be found all over the world. The cave drawings in the Chauvet Cave show a couple of horses looking in one direction and below the horses two rhinos fighting. They might have drawn rhinos because they are powerful animals and horses because they where a way of travel.
