                                                      “The Hiking Trip” Analysis   
 In the short story “The Hiking Trip,” the protagonist, Jeff, has to leave the canyon  without his dad, in order to find help for his injured brother, Mark. Jeff is courageous and loving,  and his true self is shown by his actions throughout the story. By the end Jeff finds his strength,  he finds that love can give you courage. 

 In the beginning, Jeff acts childish and frightened. For example, he says,”I never wanted  to come on this stupid old hiking trip!” This shows that he is immature because he is  complaining about the trip while Mark is badly injured and in need of assistance. “Im scared! I  don’t want to have courage!” Jeff is too frightened and he doesn't want to hike alone. He is too  scared to come out of his comfort zone and go on the journey by himself.
