The Joshua Tree
As they are driving to Midland, Rose Mart makes Rex stop the car so she can paint a large tree that she finds. Jeannette describes it with, "It stood in a crease of land where the desert ended and the mountains began, forming a wind tunnel. From the time the Joshua Tree was a tiny sapling, it had been so beaten down by the whipping wind that, rather than trying to grow skyward, it had grown in the direction the wind pushed it. It existed now in a permanent state of windblownness, leaning so far that it seemed ready to topple, although, in fact, its roots held it firmly in place." (35). The Joshua Tree symbolises the four Walls children. Their parents had raised them in such a way that they too were "in a permanent state of windblowness", meaning that the children were constantly changing. However, when Lori and Jeannette arrived in New York, they held on tightly to their "roots", and their lives were held firmly in place by them" (wikispace.com).
