The only two point of views in the story belong to both of these characters and their shared experience differs through the narrative and through instinct. The dog is introduced with instinct just as much as the man is introduced with arrogance, “its instinct told it a truer tale than was told to the man by the man 's judgment” (London 630) and it is through this instinct the dog ends the story alive. The dog’s instincts work to characterize nature as indifferent in just how instincts develop and work. It was through the dog’s ancestor’s ancient and long-lasting struggle that it was given an advantage.

Linking back to the epic of Gilgamesh, if nature weren’t there would have Gilgamesh still faced the same obstacles?
The manner in which it was written was ingenous. Jon leads us away from liking Chris, but then slowly without realizing it, we start sympathizing with him. At the end of the book, we find ourselves at a crossroads of, do we actually feel sorry for Chris, as if he were a brother or sister; someone who meant something to us, or are we just being the kind hearted soul we were brought up to be? In the book, Into the Wild, author Jon Krakauer claims that Chris McCandless is misunderstood.
But it was what happened to Mueller after the attack that makes this rhetorical device successful by stating, “It was really a spiritual experience for me.” This was effective for MacKinnon’s argument because it creates pathos for the reader by having another connection to the reader and having them see that not everything is bad in nature like MacKinnon tried to show us in the beginning of the article but nice and only want to survive.

I think buck was better being a sled dog. Buck learned new things and, buck also learning to be the lead pack. Buck never really had it easy as a house dog. His owner sold him because of his gamble problem. Buck stuck up for his pack and should be the leader.

Another author with similar experiences, Viktor Frankl, wrote about how “the human being is completely and unavoidably influenced by his surroundings…. The way in which a man accepts his fate and all the suffering it entails gives him an opportunity to give a deeper meaning to his life” (Frankl 1).
