“Thornton’s doubt was strong in his face, but his fighting spirit was aroused- the fighting spirit that soars above odds, fails to recognize the impossible, and is deaf to all save the clamor for battle” (52). Buck does the impossible and breaks the sled from the frozen snow and pulls one thousand pounds one hundred yards all by himself. John Thornton wins $1,600 dollars- which is around $46,000 today- and sets off into the wilderness with his accomplices Pete, Hans, Buck, and his other dogs to look for a lost mine. Buck accomplished this tremendous act out of love for John Thornton. “As Thornton got to his feet, Buck seized his mittened hand between his jaws, pressing in with his teeth and releasing slowly, half-reluctantly.

Throughout the course of Christopher’s life, he begins to realize that lying is not always the wrong thing to do. Christopher’s initial motto were alone the lines of, honesty is the best policy. Christopher said to the officer, “’Yes I always tell the truth.’” (Haddon 18) which strongly implies that he truly values honesty. Christopher “[does not] tell lies” (Haddon 19) and his mother tells him it’s because he was a good person. Christopher was never able to lie in his life for specific reasons.
Using evidence from the story I can clearly state that Chris McCandless from “Into the Wild” was full of braveness and courage, as well as arrogance and stubbornness. The last time his parent saw him alive he was muscular, clean shaven, and fresh off a college diploma. When he died he was skin and bone and had a very shaggy beard.
