1: Banner in the Sky is about a boy who wants to be a good guide just like his father. But no one belives in Rudi. Rudi is 16 years old and is very strong and brave. He was a climber in the unconquered Citdel. Capitan Winter is also one of the main characters in the story and he is about 45 years old. He is a very great guide and a | helpful man. Franz is also a great guide and he is also Rudi's uncle. Franz is about 37. He also climbed the Citdel to try and conquer it. He is a very wise and useful man. Rudi's father tried to climb to the top of the big mountain; the Citdel. There was an incodent along the way and died. Capitan Winter, a man named Saxo, | Franz, and Rudi all tried to climb to the top of the mountain, and they eventually did. It took they a few days and a few injuries along the way but they still made it. At sometimes in the book you wouldn't think any of them would make it, and there times you would think all four of them would make it without a doubt.
2: The story took place in 1865 in a town called Kurtal in Switzerland. it was winter at that time; It was also very cold. The story usually was before dawn because everyday that is when the guides would wake to start their expedition.
3: Some major problems that happened int he story are, when Rudi's mom didn't let Rudi go climbing with his uncle. Franz finally told his sister that everything was going to be okay. Another one could be when the four of them were on the mountain and Capitin Winter got REALLY sick because of the lack of oxygen. He got a lot of rest and new he had to go on so he fought through it. THe last one could be when Saxo had a terrible fall and hurt his leg really bad and broke on of his arms. he were almost to the top when this happened.
4: At the end of the book they were at the gathering where they go rewarded for their accomplishments. They decided to call the mountain "Rudi's mountain. Then they celebrated.
5: Rudi always grew up knowing that he had an intelligent father and he always wanted to be like him some day. Rudi is now 16 and he wants to be the greatest guide in Switzerland. Over the course he had changed emotionally and physically. He changed emotionally by thinking about what his father would do because his father died trying to help another man in need of help. He bled half of the time trying to cling onto rocks or getting rope burns. Rudi changed and has now become the greatest guide in Switzerland because of his dreams and people believing in him.
6: A really important scene in the book was when Saxo fell and Rudi had to try and save him. Rudi did, and they made it safely back to where they camped.
7: If I were a new character in the story, I would be a climber and try to conquer the Citdel. I would have been the ine who helped the people in need of help but still push them to finishing. I might be related to Rudi somehow. Imight be his brother and also conquer the mountain.
8: I probably would have had different things or ways to climb up the mountain. I would be in the scene when Saxo falls down. I would help him with his injuries and help him still make it to the top. Then we would make it to the top and we would get rewarded for it.
