When the boys are about to abandon the raft and search for food, they are attacked by a Tripod that breaks their raft into pieces. The boys swim to a nearby island where they discover an un-Capped hermit. This man, Hans, takes them to his home and feeds them a hearty meal. For payment, Hans asks them to clear a field of trees that he has been unable to clear on his own.
The boys soon realize Hans plans to keep them hostage there until the field is cleared, so they steal his boat. The boys arrive at the Games a day before they are due to begin. At the Games, all three boys qualify in their events.
However, Beanpole is unable to win and thus secure his place as a slave in the city. Will and Fritz are taken to the Tripod city inside a Tripod. They find the atmosphere in the city hostile, hot and heavy on their fragile bodies. Not only this, but they must breath with an air mask because the air of the city will not support human life.
All the winners of the Games go to a selection place where they are chosen by Masters. Will's Master is a kind one, providing him with extra space in his room and allowing him time to rest. Fritz's Master is cruel, often beating him for no reason. Will and Fritz meet often, comparing notes on what they have learned about the city and the Masters. Fritz is able to explore the city when on errands or when his Master is out, while Will gets most of his information from long conversations with his Master who is fascinated with humans.
Will's Master also takes him on tours of the city, showing him many things that both fascinate and frighten him. Will writes all this information in a book his Master has given him to read. Unfortunately, one day his Master finds the book. The Master becomes suspicious and checks Will's Cap, discovering that it is fake.
To keep this knowledge from leaving the Master's home, Will hits the Master in a sensitive place between his nose and mouth. The Master dies instantly. Will goes to Fritz and they decide to make it appear that the Master fell in his pool while intoxicated.
Then Will and Fritz go in search of the outflow of the river the Masters use to supply their city with water. World Thinking Day award activities:. Use these resources to help you stand up and take action to advocate for positive change on global issues that are important to you!
