    The setting is Booneville, Missoura. The main character is Hattie Campbell. So far, one person has died. Hattie Campbell is only afraid of four things: Indians, toothache, copperhead snakes, and her little brothers dying their all she’s got. Hattie campbell’s uncle died and his coffin and body floated away, never to be seen again. The family got a free ride to ft. Independence.

    The main character is Hattie Campbell. She is 13 years old. Her uncle died on page 2, he died because he fell to his death. His coffin rolled in a lake and the aunt thought it was funny. I think its important that the aunt thinks its funny because people are going to get angry. They live in Booneville Missoura.
