  • Knowing Our Place Analysis

    located in the panhandle of Northern Idaho. In my life, I have ventured to a variety of places, but there is not one place that compares to my boyfriend’s family river house. Even though this year was the first of many years I will be spending at this house, it has a special place in my heart. Whether the experiences were good or bad, happy or sad, I believe that it brought together groups of people who love each other, in just over the course of a few months, and made it special for all of us by creating memories that will last a lifetime. This dazzling river house is located in Priest River on a waterfront that is surrounded by three story high, green trees, and the smell of fresh river water; that water flowing just outside the house, in the backyard, is the beautiful Pend Oreille River.

Since most of his essay is comprised of the list-type sentence, it results in subliminal messaging of our damnation of American rivers.
