I have finished the first two paragraphs. I just need three more.
Phoenix Jackson was probably born before the Civil War and was probably a slave. She has known hard work and fear that surrounded the slaves’ daily lives. The food they had was grown in small gardens attached to the shacks provided by the slave owners. She was expected to work in the cotton fields from sunrise to sunset along with her family. Phoenix was uneducated because slaves were not allowed to learn to read or write, in fear they would rise up against their masters. She raised her children in poverty and hopelessness yet she was a proud woman.
When Phoenix walks the long path from her house to town, she has to overcome the fear of being injured, of animals attacking her and because of her age, the toll it takes on her. Along the way, a dog startles her and she falls into a ditch which she cannot get out of until a hunter comes along and helps her out. A nickel drops out of his pocket and falls to the ground. He seems not to notice so Phoenix
Distracts him and picks the nickel up and puts it in her pocket. When he turns back to her, he aims the gun at her and yet she is not afraid. He does not mention the nickel and although she knows that stealing is wrong, she keeps it. She is not afraid of the gun or the hunter because she has faced many situations like this in her past.
