I think the outcast group worked as a successful team towards the middle and the end of the story. In the beginning of the story they weren’t as much of a team but slowly they became a team. I think the reason why they were a successful team at in the beginning and the end of the story is because they all talked and included new people who they seen along the way. Also because they talked to each other about what to do about food and other things such as warmth( a fire). When Mother Shipton starved her self to save the young child because she had already lived her life and she didn’t want him to die. At the end then one person had left to go back to town to try and find help but help said they couldn’t help them. Also because they all died not because the killed each other but because there was no one who came and helped.
