So much information I chose to do 2or 3Journals .William Gully s journal will be next.I feel the last journal will be on the culture that these tribes had.These people survived the harsh elements and probably lived pretty rough just tring to gather food!A people that knew no materialism.Just taking with them the memories of family!
