A Rigorous Researcher or Investigator looks up background information related to the book and selects 3-5 topics from the reading (i.e. language, culture, foods, plants, etc.) and researches them in depth to further support understanding of the book. Although there were many interesting cultural aspects and locations that Peter mentions through the book, the five that I chose seemed to be the most intriguing to me because of the personal stories that go with them. The dilemma with Ed and the sea turtle, the marvelous sunrise that Peter and Diego witnessed at the summit of Mount Pico, the "obsession" the Peter had with finding the lignum vitea wood, Breath herself, and of course the unusual little black dog were all topics that I chose to research.
