The Outcasts of Poker Flat

Today in English, we read “The Outcasts of Poker Flat” by Bret Harte.

I believe the group, which consists of John Oakhurst, the Duchess, Mother Shipton, Tom Simson, and Piney work as a successful team. They are the outcasts of their town for being objectionable characters and for love. The first reason why I believe the group to work successfully is when John Oakhurst exchange his horse for the mule for the Duchess to ride on. The second reason why I believe the group to work successfully is when Mother Shipton told John Oakhurst on her death bed to give her bundle of food to Piney. The third and final reason why I believe the group to work successfully is when John Oakhurst give snowshoes to Tom Simson so he can walk to Poker Flat. Those three reasons are the reason why I believe John Oakhurst, the Duchess, Mother Shipton, Tom Simson, and Piney work as a successful team.

  1. I like that you provide three solid examples to support your answer. Next time, end your response with a wrap-up sentence to act as a conclusion/ending.
