  15. Do you think these books have the American Dream in them? • Our Town • F451 • The Lone Ranger

  17. The Lone Ranger • This is another book that I think that the people are not living the American Dream. • They are living on this reservation, and can barely afford food for their children.

  18. Our Town • Out Town think is an example of living the American Dream. • The characters in the story are living with opportunity, prosperity and freedom.
