He made a lot of mistakes based on arrogance. I don’t admire him at all for his courage nor his noble ideas. Really, I think he was just plain crazy,” shows that Shaun believes Chris had no common sense in his doing for leaving society for the wild. I agree with Callarman’s position of thinking “ he had no common sense” and that he was “bright and Ignorant” because Chris thinks he did not have much to offer in his society, ditched all his possessions to take a trip into the Alaskan Wilderness and did not have much common sense or survival skills. Chris McCandless was very courageous for ditching all his possessions to take a trip in the wilderness.
In Chris 's quest to become free and to find himself, also found death. He was irresponsible because instead of finding his way through a reasonable way, he just dropped everything, changed his name, and left without telling anyone anything. He should have realized that his .22 caliber rifle would not kill any big game such as moose or deer without multiple shots. Chris didn 't know about the seeds he was eating too, as they turned out to be toxic "... In the case if Chrisopher McCandless, there is evidence that H. alpinum seeds constituted a significant portion of his meager diet during a period before his death...
Ignored can lead to catastrophic consequences. In the story into the wild by Jon Krakauer the main character Chris Mccandless attempts to conform with nature alone with transcendental ways but dies as a result. Mccandless resolution was unjustified because he left his friends and family to distress, he did not have adequate materials to sustain himself in the wilderness and he overestimated himself throughout his journey. Some may argue that it was his right to strive for his goal by his philosophy but he ignored offers that would have kept him alive. Mccandless followed his journey to Alaska.
Hunger, lack of occupations, and Indian attacks got to be the main causes of the colonists’ deaths. This event changed history. Colonists suffered starvation due to the environment and lack of skills. There were no famers on the ship list ( Smith). Without farmers, the colonist could not grow crops and so they starved.
A choice made by Mr.fisher that affects paul was when he overlooked the area and all of its issues. He didn't exactly say that they lived within feet of the muck fire, he also never said that tangerine was known for lightning striking on a consistent day to day basis.” mom would never say it but i bet we were both thinking the same, what else had dad “overlooked” about tangerine?”(pg.27).
In April, 1992 a young man named Chris McCandless walked into the Alaskan bush never to be seen or heard from again. He entered the bush with minimal supplies- a firearm, ammunition, a ten pound bag of rice, a small library, and a few other basic survival items- and confidence in his abilities to survive (Krakauer, 162). Four months later, six hunters found the remains of his decomposing body inside an abandoned bus amidst the thick vegetation of the Alaskan wilderness (Krakauer, 13) . Upon hearing Chris’ story locals and critics promptly labeled him as an “ill-prepared kook”, but were they right? If his critics were correct, then McCandless would not have survived quite as long as he did in complete solitude.
Starting over in a new unknown world can be terrifying. The Jamestown colonists had hard trials, some survived these trials, some weren 't so lucky. Poor planning, Indian attacks and lack of medical care are the three main reasons the so many colonists died during the early years of their settlement in the new world. The colonists were not prepared for their new beginning.
Even with all the ribbons and a combat infantryman’s badge which he obtain through his tour with the pressure of his father. All that meant nothing; he didn’t earn them or deserved them. He felt responsible for Kiowa’s death. When he pondered about the tragic event, he recalls “the worst part, “was the smell” (139). Constantly, Norman graphic, vivid memories of how “Kiowa disappeared under the waste and water” (143), and how he felt being dragged down with him.
McCarthy made the man and the boy nameless because it supports the new unidentified world. Names are now insignificant; since communities are destroyed and civilization is gone. It also contributes to the story’s vagueness, where the year and location aren’t known. The man guesses what month it is based on the weather, since he hasn’t “… kept a calendar for years. [But he knew]
I find this passage to be significant because he refered himself as Chris McCandless rather than the invented identity he was using during his trip. I think McCandless decided to use his real name because he knew that his “Alexander Supertramp” life was over, and the only way for people who rescue him was to know his real name. Though, when McCandless was writing it, he was not expecting anyone to see this note and come to rescue him because he knew that he was the only person on the mountain. However, I think that it is ironic how Chris McCandless still went outside the bus to collect some berries when he was injured in critical condition.
Their was nothing the native people could do to stay their because of the selfish acts of the white settlers. The settlers did not care for what they had done, they only thought about their themselves. According to the Treaty of Echota the United States had promised the Cherokee tribe food and supplies for one year, but the suppliers were really high for their meat, corn, and grain, so often the Cherokee tribe did not get their rations. They turned to their traditional skills to survive they made moccasins of deer skins for their feet and pots and dishes out of
The man did not listen the the elder’s advice, and once he realized, dumbfounded, that the old man was right, he realized how foolish he was not to bring a partner because he thought he could be independent, and the journey would be a walk in a (moderately cold) park. As the man walks through the Yukon, he decides to peel off his mittens and unzip his jacket to eat a quick lunch and quickly realizes that was a bad idea: “That man from Sulfur Creek had spoken the truth when telling how cold it sometimes got in the country. And he had laughed at him at the time”(10). The man does not realize the significance of cold, and just how dangerous it can be when mixed with stupidity and absolutely no common sense.
2. There are several reasons that the Vikings didn 't get any credit. Nonetheless, the Vikings established six colonies by Lief Erickson but they were n 't able to keep up with because of the Indians and the ecological problems. Before Erick, his father moved from Norway till he reached glacial borders were Norse settlers lived which he named that place Greenland
Chris McCandless was a young man who left society behind entirely to fulfill his dream of the Alaskan adventure and escape the reality of life. After burning the last of his money and changing his name to Alexander Supertramp, McCandless migrated throughout the states and unfortunately was immensely unprepared for his journey; he only carried a ten-pound bag of rice, a small rifle, and a tattered road map. Consequently, McCandless dies due to his overconfidence and unpreparedness, which in turn makes everyone curious as to why he embarked on a journey while being so vulnerable. Arguably, Chris McCandless was a noble idealist who wanted abandonment from the falsehood of society and a feel of what nature could give. Chris McCandless wanted
