Lyddie and her family climb up to the loft to avoid being hurt by the bear.This is an example of Person v.s Nature because Lyddie’s family is in conflict with the bear because the bear is knocking over things , trying to get to them, and eating their food. In this scenario Lyddie represents person and the bear represents nature.
