Gol is a cow, but Katherine Applegate (author of Home of The Brave) also uses her as a symbol. How does Gol represent Kek’s past, present, and possibly his future?
I think Gol takes Kek back to some of his memories because he was a herder in his old life and so was his family. When he hugs his cow he remembers some of his memories with cows and memories with his family. I think the cow helps him like a camera because it brings him back like i said and since he does not have a phone he cant take photos so the cow is his camera. I think cows are a symbol of Keks future because it gives Kek hope.I think Gol gives Kek what he needs to stay not so depressed because it brings him back to his old life. Kek has a future with Gol because Gol I think is like keks daughter because Kek cares for her so much. I wonder if Kek will ever see Gol again? Will Keks mom ever come to see Gol.
