Betsy loves reading books and when she has enough money she wants to go college. Amelia is very feminine and aristocratic. They were in conflict about signing the petition, this shows man vs. man. ""We're all working like black slaves, is what," said Betsy. "I've half a mind to sign the blooming petition." "Oh Betsy, you wouldn't!" Amelia lifted her nose out of the handkerchief, her eyes wide... "Should you sign the petition, Betsy, they'll dismiss you. I know they will..."" (91).
Lyddie lives in a cabin in Vermont and is brave. One day a bear comes into their cabin and Lyddie she takes control and gets the bear to leave. She is conflicted with the natural world, showing man vs. nature. "Lyddie glared straight into the bear's eyes, daring him to step forward into the cabin... she backed up to the ladder and, never taking her eyes off the bear, inched her way up to the loft" (2).
Lyddie is in a coach to Lowell, the other passengers on the coach were very proper and she was dressed shabbily, they discriminated against her because of how she was dressed, showing man vs. society. "...when the others weren't concentrating on keeping their seats in the swaying coach, they were looking at her--at her clothes especially. at first she was mortified, but the longer they rode, the angrier she became. how rude they were, these so called-gentry."
