Summary

Chapter 7: As the day continues into evening, the group has supper and then goes fishing. The narrator gathers worms in the garden and thinks of her mother. She remembers her brother’s ideas about going fishing as if he is present. As the sun begins to set, two people in a power boat drive up, two Americans and Claude, the owner of the motel bar. The group turns their canoe for home and the narrator thinks of going back to the cabin, feeling better because the group will be leaving soon. As in previous chapters, the narrator feels deeply connected to the natural world. She thinks the group will leave the next morning and decides to burn her father’s papers in case he might have gone mad, in order to ensure he avoids being hospitalized for incompetency at the end of his life.
