Gideon He is an African boy who is the Farquar's servant. He is friends with the Farquar's son, Teddy. He doesn't want to be friends with Teddy though.
Exposition The story is based in 1924. They are in South Africa. The setting is at the Farquar's house. The Farquar's are good people. They have a son named Teddy and a servant named Gideon.
Conflict Teddy gets snake venom in his eye. Gideon treats him. He chews up a root and spits the juice in his eye. The Farquar's want to know what he used to treat Teddy, but Gideon won't tell them because his practice and his culture is all he has.
Resolution The Farquar's finally realize that Gideon's culture is all he has left. The decide that they're not going to bother him anymore. This is a good thing and they all live in peace after this.
Theme The theme is this book is that cultural differences is what makes a person who they are. Without ones culture they wouldn't be the person they are. Another possible theme could have been about different cultural medicines and how different treatments aren't necessarily wrong or right. Person Reaction This was a good short story.
