Do you think the group worked as a successful team?
I believe they did, the reason being is that, a successful team has a leader and the people in the group are each doing their part to help the group out. They had there moments when they just wanted to quit, like when Uncle Billy took the horse and the mule while everyone was sleeping. At that point Mr.Oakhurst decided not to tell them. Each person in the story helped each other out, Mother Shipton starved her self so the younger ones like Piney would get to eat, as they would have a longer life to live than herself. Tim and Mr. Oakhurst headed to Poker Flats but Mr. Oakhurst made him snow boots so he would make it, as he could only go half way. They all ended up helping each other but they each had a different ending because some died.
