Between Neayoruk and Walkeropolis, there are imported cotton, corn, potatoes and tomatoes and plowed fields. It would be good to remake a world but not by Walker's methods.
Walker quotes a stanza from Kipling which I have found, with slightly different words, by googling.
"'There's always a man like Walker...'" (p. 116)
- to which Alston replies:
"'Fortunately, there's always someone like us too...'" (ibid.)
That is certainly true if you are characters in a certain kind of fiction.
At the end of Chapter Six, Odikweos asks, "'Troy next?'" (p. 119) to which Walker replies, "'Troy, indeed...'" (ibid.) so will Odikweos devise a wooden horse?
