“An American Childhood”
I think that the Author wants us to view the world through a child’s eyes. Personally she made me feel like I was part of her childhood, as though I was there to experience the joys and excitement of being chased in the cold myself. In the essay she says “the point was that he had chased us passionately without giving up” and “if in that snowy backyards the driver of the black Buick had cut off our heads I would have died happy” She is trying to emphasize or stress the importance of hope, courage and perseverance to never give up regardless of the situation.
