Quotes like “Within the haze of the beach something dark was fumbling along. (…) Ralph saw it first (…) the creature stepped from the mirage (…) and they saw that the darkness (…) was a party of boys.” We can see how the word or synonyms for darkness are used numerous times. For a group of young boys stranded on a deserted island we can see how frightening it would be to watch this.

The tone throughout the auto biography of Ben Franklin is his evolution of self-improvement, and the model he left behind for people to follow. Ben Franklin helped shape the foundation of the United States of America, and in return his impression on early America has endured the test of time.
