A worn Path

             Phoenix Jackson was the first character introduced in this story. Her clothing is made of rags, so you know she is very poor. She is a determined old lady. Phoenix is a content person. You can tell she has cataracts in her eyes. She walks miles along this path to get medicine for her grandson.
             The next person the story introduces in the young white hunter that Phoenix comes across. He has two dogs and a gun. He was not quite polite to Miss Jackson.
             The next person is the attendant in town at the doctor's office. She is very rude to Miss Jackson. The attendant greets her with a "charity case I suppose". In the end the attendant ended up giving Phoenix a dime for the holidays. .
             The last character is the nurse. The nurse knew of the case with Phoenix and her grandson. The nurse gave the medicine to Phoenix that she had walked so far for.
             The story introduces old Phoenix Jackson. She is an old black lady making a journey on a path. She has taken this path many times before.
