Conover believes that the idea of roads varies, from means of transportation to the rank distinguishment. Roads show progress but may cause lead to destruction in some other forms, but each have their own unique backstory. He uses various rhetorical modes within the first few sections.
Description: Conover describes, in detail, the surrounding environment, the people he meets, the clothes they are wearing and interactions. Exemplification: he gives countless examples of how different people are affected and how their reaction to certain situations. He gives examples of the significance of different roads in past history. Compare/contrast: he compares the backstory of roads made by the Mayans and other ancients and their purpose. Narration: Conover narrates his past experiences and events that took place in his life that he has deemed important and relevant to his thesis. Through his story telling, he sees himself in a different perspective. Cause/effect: Conover shows the the effects of the construction of roads. People see them as progress but it can mean the destruction of animals home and territory. He describes the process of the "edge effect" and it's. Egative outcomes for some species.
