Story Message:throughout the story, lessons of respecting nature and elders can be found. For elders, Johnny Raven could be seen as important as he was the one who got the group food, and knew most about the country. For nature, it could easily be seen in the story, such as Johnny telling the group not to waste the moose meat, as it was disrespectful, and how that seemed to affect them in the future.
