I was born in Austin, but I also lived in New York and Florida. I don't remember my parents telling me we were leaving or saying goodbye to my friends, but I do recall the long drive that took my family and me across the country to the small town of Ithaca, NY. I was in the first grade at the time, and it took me a while to make friends at my new school. Fortunately, my family owned 15 acres of land dotted with swinging vines and split in half by a creek. I spent nearly every day after school there with my brother and our dog.

Jenny, the main character, is obsessed
with the idea of a boar being out in those woods.
Jenny decides to go looking for the boar on a hot summer day.
As she makes her way through the brush, she starts to get a sense that the boar is somewhere nearby.
The boar surprises her by coming through the brush silently. Jenny is terrified and stares silently back at the boar.
After hearing the cry of a blue jay,
the scared boar flees, which surprises Jenny because she thought the boar was fearless.
The boar runs past Jenny, not at her.
Jenny learns to feel sorry for the boar with its torn ears and no golden horn.
Jenny cries now when she thinks about the boar, sad for it that it "lives in fear of bluejays and little girls, when everyone in Glen Morgan lives in fear of him."

The Paulsen's use raw meat
for their dogs and they
also burn their trash.
"Because we feed processed
meat to the dogs..."
"We started to treat them
like pets"
By naming the bears,
the Paulsen's got too used
to them and started to
treat them like pets.
Paulsen was already
having a bad day, when
he found Scarhead digging
through his trash.
"I was having a bad day,
and it made me mad."
The bear roared at Paulsen,
and he just stood there
afraid of the huge beast.
"I could not move, would
not have had time to react."
The Paulsens feed
their dogs raw meat
and the bears are hungry
post-hibernation.
"Because we feed processed
meat to the dogs..."
"There gets to be a too-
relaxed attitude. We started
treating them like pets."
The Paulsens grew comfortable
with the bears, and after
naming them, they started
to treat them like pets.
Paulsen was having a bad
day, when he found Scarhead
going through his burning
trash.
"...because I was so used
to him--I picked up the
stick, threw it at him..."
"In one rolling motion...
he turned and came for me."

"I could not move... I did
not think then."
Scarhead got angry and
stood up on his back legs
over Paulsen, who froze in
shock.
The bear didn't kill Gary
so he decided not to kill
the bear. Gary learns to
respect wild animals because
he is not better than them.
"For not hurting me, for
not killing me, I should
kill him...I am nothing more
and nothing less than any
other animal in the woods."
Paulsen had raw meat
for his dogs at his
house, and occasionally
burned trash with food
on it.
"...there is always
the smell of meat
over the kennel."
"We started to treat
them like pets. A major
mistake."
The Paulsens became
too comfortable with
the bears after naming
them.
Paulsen, who was already
in a bad mood, got mad
at the bear for ripping off a side of the burn
enclosure.
"He had torn things apart
quite a bit...and it made
me mad."
Scarhead almost takes off
Gary's head. Gary freezes at
first, then returns home for
his gun.
"One blow would have broken
my neck."
"I got the rifle from the
gun rack."
"...he stopped and raised
on his back legs and hung
over me."
Paulsen realizes that since
the bear didn't kill him, he
shouldn't kill it.
Paulsen learns that he is
no different from any other
animal in the woods.
"Kill him for what? For not
killing me?"

"I am nothing more and nothing
less than any other
animal in the woods."
