** The reason Helen recommends that Rod takes only a knife: a gun's power will give Rod a false sense of courage and safety which would possibly get him killed. A knife is only so much better then being unarmed and his vulnerability will make him paranoid enough to avoid conflicts and survive. Helen knows from experience, she took a gun on her first expedition and losing it saved her life: she ran from a native beast rather then fighting it and learned later that the creatures were virtually ImmuneToBullets.
