"I am his son and since he is dead I have taken his place. I am now Chief of Ghalas-at. All my wishes must be obeyed."
Why does Ramo assume that he is the new chief of the island, even though Karana is older?

The laws of Ghalas-at forbade the making of weapons by women of the tribe, so I went out to search for any that might have been left behind. (9.10)
Why weren't women allowed to make weapons?
| Quote #6
As I lay there I wondered what would happen to me if I went against the law of our tribe which forbade the making of weapons by women – if I did not think of it at all and made those things which I must have to protect myself.
What do you think of the images Karana uses to describe what will happen if she breaks the law forbidding women to make weapons? Why are they related to nature?
