Be sure that you read the prompt closely identify what exactly the prompt asks you to do. This prompt is slightly different from what weve seen before, but the exact same principles will be applied. RHETORICAL ANALYSIS ESSAY Consider: It was a mine town, uranium most recently. Dust devils whirled sand off the mountains. Even after the heaviest of rains, the water seeped back into the ground, between stone, and the earth was parched again. - Linda Hogan, Making Do

Discuss: 1. What feelings do you associate with images of dusty mountains and dry earth? 2. There are two images associated with land in the third sentence. Identify the two images and compare and contrast the feelings these images evoke.

Support your stance on this issue with at least 3 specific pieces of evidence from personal experience, your readings, historical or current events, etc. (Add a note/comment to point out each of your three pieces of specific evidence).
