Sample - Theme (Moral Development)

In the early chapters of the book, Karana was deemed foolish by her father for her concern over the possibly extinction of the Otters if the hunting continues. Despite, her beliefs, she did not do anything to go against the ideology of her people.
Later in the story, she made a decision never to kill again - she chose not to harm another life as she now sees them as individuals, as her friends, whose lives are just as precious and important. She developed a fresh respect for life.

This is clearly not exhaustive, as it is only meant to be used as a guide. Those who are exploring this theme needs to find other development in the book that substantiate this theme.
