The Poisonwood Bible: Book 4, Chapter 54 Summary & Analysis

Rachel finds the hunt disgusting. She vows never to eat meat ever again. She’s especially horrified at the thought of her sisters enjoying the roast game, licking blood and fat from their lips.
Rachel’s impressions of the hunt are very different from her sisters’—she refuses to even try to understand the complex ideas and cultural patterns at work.
