This essay Big Red has a total of 348 words and 2 pages.
I read the book Big Red by Jim Kjelgaard. It is a realistic fiction about a boy named Danny who lives with his dad way out in the woods. He gets a champion Irish Setter named Big Red and calls him Red. They go hunting a lot and Danny really loves Red.
Big Red would make a good movie because it\'s really interesting and there\'s lots of action that happens. Like when Danny firs brings Red home, Red runs after a grizzly bear that is really mean and stuff and he runs after it for hours and Red traps him on a rock. He\'s the only dog ever to do that. Another interesting part is when they go after the big cat that killed one of Danny\'s father\'s hounds and hurt Ross, Danny\'s father. When Red and Danny go out they shoot a deer whose antler traps Danny\'s foot. All night Danny thinks Red is barking and growling at some leaves blowing around making small noises but its really the cat. If Red weren\'t there Danny would have got killed. A few days later Ross finds Danny and tells him it was the cat stalking him and not the wind. Near the beginning the guy who gives Red to Danny takes him to a dog show and there is lots of description of New York city and the dog show place and the house they stay in. Danny helps Red win the show ! by standing downwind and letting his scent cheer up Red. Red wins best of breed or something and becomes and official champion. Near the end Mr. Haggin, the guy who gave Red to Danny, sends him another dog. The new dog, Sheilah, makes friends with Ross though. Old Magesty the bear kills Ross\' other 3 hounds and hurts Ross and Red and Danny go after him.
I think this is a very good book and that it would make a good movie. Actually it is a movie, but I never saw it. I want to though. Everyone who likes dogs should read Big Red.

Film NoirFilm Noir Forty years after Raymond Borde and Étienne Chaumeton defined the challenge, critical commentators on film noir continue to grapple with it. Ironically, American writers did not immediately take up consideration of this indigenous phenomenon and the question of its essential traits. Only gradually in a frequently cross-referenced series of essays in the 1970s did they begin to express themselves. There are now a dozen full-length books in English concerning film noir and undoubtedly
Dominican music and film Dominican music and film The Caribbean island nation of the Dominican Republic is little known by most Americans, but America is ever present in the Dominican consciousness. Until Sammy Sosa and Mark McGuire went head to head in the legendary homerun battle of 1998, few Americans were aware of any American-Dominican rivalry in western hemispheric culture. Nothing gave Dominicans more pride than to see Sosa hold Major League Baseballs homerun record, albeit for less than 24 hours before McGuire

AmericanizationAmericanization If you ask me to name the proudest distinction of Americans, I would choose- because it contains all the others- the fact that they were the people who created the phrase to make money. No other language or nation had ever used these words before; men had always thought of wealth as a static quantity- to be seized, begged, inherited, shared, looted or obtained as a favor. Americans were the first to understand that wealth has to be created. Ayn Rand People have always been inte
