Why do Nell and Sulfa watch Chicken Little drown? (Perkins_2011_week12 pg 346) Consider the significance of his name and his death, especially in relation to the name of the neighborhood "Bottom." (Helpful background: In Part I of the book the name of the town am explained. White farmers who freed their slaves did not wish to share their good land in the Ohio valley. They tricked the free slaves by promising them the "best" land in the hills, where in actuality "planting was backbreaking, the soil slid down and washed away the seeds, and the wind lingered through the winter." The farmers claimed that high up in the hills was "the bottom of heaven," what God looked down on.)
