The battle between Rontu and the other dogs in chapter seventeen is very much like the scene in which Ramo is killed. In both cases, Karana hears the barking of dogs in the distance while wondering where someone close to her has disappeared to, and in both cases she finds that person (or dog) near a cliff, surrounded by wild dogs. The similarity of the two scenes carries a number of significances. First, it makes the reader recall the incident with Ramo when Rontu goes missing, and later when Karana hears the dogs barking off in the distance. Because the wild dogs killed Ramo, the similarity of the two scenes implies that Rontu will meet a similar end. Second, it establishes a connection between Ramo and Rontu in relation to Karana, implying that Karnan has similar relationships with the two.

There are some other important notes my Language Art teacher thinks we should know...There was good fortune when the fish washed up on shore to feed them and when Wana-a-pa-le got upset about them killing the otters...this might help a little but otherwise it explains a lot already.
