    One main way in the world when the environment and humans interact, is when the environment harms humans. There are a lot of different ways that the environment harms humans such as: earthquakes, hurricanes, and twisters. In the book Backwater by Joan Bauer, when Ivy goes on a quest to find her mysterious aunt, Jo, she finds her on a mountain full of snow and her in a cabin. Then, “Snow crashed into the cabin. “My god!” I grabbed a flashlight, rushed to Jo across the frigid wood floor, stepping in mounds of snow in my wool socks. I lunged through the dark to the heap that was Jo, lying on her side helplessly on her bed, half covered with roof debris. Through the hole in the roof I could see a huge tree hanging precariously overhead.”(146). In this quote Jo is severely injured from the roof of the cabin from the snow that toppled over her.

    The characters in each story were both harmed by the environment. In 2005, Hurricane Katrina came into New Orleans, Louisiana and demolished and wrecked most of New Orleans. This destructive hurricane destroyed people’s lives and animal habitats. Hurricane was so terrible that the southeast of the United States of America is still rebuilding from the wreckage.

    The same learning of the environment is also taught in Avalanche by Luke Edgar. This interesting story takes place in the snowy mountains. Where this year it’s very dangerous. When these two men are making their way u the mountain, they forgot to look for signs to tell whether it was safe or not to climb up the mountain. ”I wonder if the mountain could sense my confidence, I thought I would later regret.”(84) He knew that he could have died from that avalanche but since his friend saved his life he lived and knew that he regretted not looking for the signs of an avalanche.
    People learn from the environment everyday by just standing outside. I learn a lot from the environment by just doing this. You can learn about nature and what kind of ecosystem you live in. I learned that our ecosystem contains many White Tailed Deer, and they are adapted to this kind of environment. You can also learn many valuable lessons not only from animals but also from the other things in nature.

    The short poem, Working against Time is about a man who trying to save trees that have been dug out of the ground by a company. Not liking what he sees, the human goes to where the trees are and tries to save them. “I’m not tree surgeon, it was Arbor Day, but I climbed over the free-for-all, squeezing as many as I could into my car.” The trees need the humans help. The environment is relying on the human to save it.
    If you to an area, or pass through an area where deforestation has taken place, it’s clear that the areas are relying on the humans to restore it. If the area was left alone for some time, it would get the chance to grow back. It would take a long time, but it would be possible. Since humans come and destroy the environment it needs help. By my house there use to be at least 3 acres of trees. But the trees were cleared so that a nursing home could be built there. When that building is taken down the environment will rely on the humans to bring it back.

    There are other ways the environment helps humans too! Sometime, “In three years, the beaches in Bradley Beach will have dune grass, birds, and even some exotic plants.” (1). Christmas Trees will make this happen. Christmas trees are apart of the environment and they will provide humans with a beautiful scenery. So, the environment helps humans.

    There are many ways humans can interact with the environment. One of the ways is then environment helps humans. In the eye- grabbing novel, Backwater, by Joan Bauer, the main character, Ivy, is trying to find away to cross an ice- solid pond when, “ The wolf gently moved arched toward the shore, I crawled after him like an injured infant pulling the sled slowly.” (160). Malachi is wolf, and wolves are a part of the environment, and Malachi helps Ivy, the environment helps humans.
