Do you ever tire? God, look at you, iron is what you are made of.

Weihenmayer has taken many risks of climbing mountains without one of the most important senses, his eyesight. In these two stories, they talk about the struggles of climbing mountains, but also the triumph of reaching their goals. In “The Devils Thumb” by Jon Krakaeur, the perspective is from the view point of a solo climber. In the story it says, “Writing these words more than a dozen years later, it’s no longer entirely clear just how I thought soloing the Devils Thumb would transform my life” (157). This quote is showing that Krakaeur was thinking the dangerous climb would drastically change something about his life, if he climbed the mountain by himself.
The human condition is a term which references our intricate existence by recognising our constant innate ability to adapt and modify our perceptions and values. Through our mental capability for hope allows us to endure difficult challenges. If hope is removed, we lose the will to survive. Shawshank Redemption originally directed by Frank Darabont and 127 Hours by Aron Ralston both represent intrinsic hope in relation to the human condition to gain freedom. Specifically, 127 hours represents a man who hikes through the canyons of Utah when he is trapped by 365-kilogram boulder that crushed his right hand to the point where he amputated it himself with a blunt pocketknife to gain freedom.
In conclusion, of the twelve Lakota virtues described by Marshall, bravery was the most important virtue in the survival of his people. Marshall wrote “honor should be accepted with humility,” “each step we take is a lesson in perseverance,” and “Bravery, however, needs to be taken in context because life demands it in so many ways.” Some virtues are not practiced all the time, but bravery is something you need to use every day of your life. One of the most daunting things any human can confront is facing death, or great bodily harm, but with bravery these things can be

Krakauer ends Into Thin Air by logically developing an argument which explains the deaths of Scott Fischer, the leader of an expedition ascending Everest at the same time as the Adventure Consultant’s expedition, and Yasuko Namba, a client of Adventure Consultants. The storm had rendered both Scott and Yasuko helpless and unable to descend the mountain by their own strength. Consequently, in the final chapters of the book, the surviving leaders must decide between attempting to rescue Scott and Yasuko and “needlessly jeopardizing] the lives of the other climbers” or returning to base camp without the Scott and Yasuko. Realizing that the climbers were “as close to death as a person can be and still breathing” led the leaders to abandon any attempts to rescue either Fischer or Yasuko in the hope of saving the lives of everyone at camp. Including this argument helps Krakauer establish the motives of the surviving climbers.
In the article “Anatoli Boukreev (Responds to Krakauer)”, Boukreev argues against author Jon Krakauer and his initial allegations in his article “Into Thin Air”, which was published in the September 1996 issue of Outside Magazine. He claims that he was more than qualified to guide groups of paying clients to summit Mount Everest. This is due to his extensive experience in doing exactly that. For example, he has conquered a grand total of 22 mountains in more than twenty years. He has climbed all 22 of these without the assistance of any sort of supplementary oxygen.
Krakauer In the beginning of the last section of the novel uses a narrative and descriptive style. The point of view is first person. The only time the author doesn’t use first person is when he is talking about events that he didn’t see himself. That’s when he transfers to a third person.
Into The Wild is written in both the 1st person, when the author is giving his own opinion or giving credibility, and in the 3rd person, when the author or anyone being quoted is talking about Chris McCandless. The effect Krakauer achieves is the notion of how isolated individuals exist in a state of wilderness and establishing his credibility. Krakauer personally connects with McCandless and explores every aspect of his life to discover the real truth of his death, and is convinced he did not die from starvation. He becomes emotionally attached to Chris and even develops a strong relationship with his parents. As a result, this effect leads to his writing being slightly biased.
