This story is about 4 people that get exiled where they used to live, Poker Flat. They got exiled because they’re misfits, rascals, and outcasts. John Oakhurst, is a gambler, Uncle Billy is a thief, Duchess is a prostitute, and Mother Shipton is assumed to be a witch. Now, they’re stuck with each other in the cold wintry storm with not enough food to survive on and a habitable place to stay in. What they all lacked of, was teamwork. In a team, you’re suppose to work together, and not bail or even try to give up. Uncle Billy decided once everybody was asleep, he would steal the horses and trapped them in the cabin. Again, when it comes to being a united team, you do NOT abandon your teammates. Oakhurst and Tom decided to go back to Poker Flat, but the two girls had to stay back at the cabin freezing themselves to the point of death. In my opinion, I don’t think they should of just left the other members alone by themselves. Finally how Oakhurst decides to kill himself at a time of weakness, when he thought he failed. In the story it shows he is a natural leader, but when he hits a major bump in the road he gives up dramatically, by shooting himself. These are all examples of how a team should NOT work like.
