In the FieldOne of the story that had me touched was "In the Field", and my favorite passage from the story is "The rain was the war and you had to fight it (pg 156)".
What I felt in this story is what the soldiers were going thru after losing thier good friend Kiowa. Kiowa died by drowning in a field full of craps. In this story it tells how the soldiers was looking for the body of their friend Kiowa and that they did not sleep or rest until they recovered his body.
What can be learned from relationships or human nature is you can make a bond with someone who never meet until you spend some time with them then you start connecting with that somebody.
Why did Sanders compare the rain to war?
How did the soldiers felt after the Kiowa died?
