He wasn’t afraid of not coming back alive. So when he went into the wild in Alaska, Chris felt like he was for sure going to come back and publish the book that he has written throughout his journey to show others that taking risks like this is totally okay. Unfortunately for Chris it wasn’t okay. I believe that he did not intend to “kill himself” for going into the wild with basically nothing. He wanted to go in there without really anything so that he can make things that were in the nature.
The author really understood why Chris McCandless did what he did and that is why he was able to write such a good book about his life even with some speculation having to take place and even having to find the people that Chris talked to, to be able to piece the whole story together. In conclusion the author wrote this book to inform readers to follow their dreams and Chris is a prime example of this because most people quit when following their dreams get too difficult but Chris never did and the author has a huge amount of respect for him because of
Wagoner’s parents were kind and respectful to people all their lives. One example of this is when the author literally states in Their Bodies, “They had been kind to others all their lives and believed in being useful” (Wagoner 2.4-5). This shows that he believes they were kind to many people. This leads to Wagoner concluding his poem in the fashion, “If you’re not certain which ones are theirs, be gentle to everybody” (Wagoner 3.3-4). This means, the author, since his parents were kind during their lives, wants others to be kind and respectful to everyone.
Explorers have to think of others in all that they do. Explorers can not give up and be persistent. Through exploring and creating new ideas explorers become wise and use this knowledge for the good of the world. Sacagawea has shown greatness through being selfless and giving anything possible to the others in the crew rather than herself and her son. Edmund Hillary never gave up, even as a kid being bullied, he never lost sight of his dreams.
His parents were his #1 supporters, supporting him ever since he was born and said he was grateful for them. He's 29, has a lot of wisdom and experience, sometimes outsmarting his parents. He made mistakes, as everybody does, but sometimes he'd learn not to do something without even doing it! He grew up a middle class life having just enough, if not more guidance than needed. He was the perfect
Chris was a strong man who wanted to escape his life and adventure off to Alaska. Unfortunately, Christ died from starvation. There are many people that have different opinions about Chris. For instance, Shaun Callarman is convinced that Chris McCandless was intelligent but unenlightened. He believed that Chris’s expedition was ludicrous and he never thought about the consequences.
Franz thought of McCandless as a son, and cared deeply for him, but because McCandless was trying to keep his “affairs...as two or three, and not a hundred or a thousand”(Thoreau 3), he kept a distance between himself and Franz, being careful to not become too attached to him. After meeting people all over the coast, he made it to Alaska and “was relieved...that he had again evaded the impending threat of human intimacy, of friendship, and all the messy emotional baggage that comes with it”(Krakauer 55). Although he kept his load light, loneliness turned out to be McCandless’s biggest regret at the end of his life, when he had run out
In “Stop the sun” by Gary Paulsen, The character Terry changes from a boy who is embarrassed by his dad’s disease to a boy who thinks of his dad and accept his dad .

3. The reason why Florence death happen before he was able to see the Golden Carp is because Florence death, plays an important role in the development of Antonio’s growing into a man, seeing his close friend die before he could find peace in a god affected his views about his god in a big way. I also believe that it had supported Cico idea of the church god being a jealous god, since Florence died right before he was able to meet a “new God.” 4. Gabriel’s answer to tony question was that he did not believe that things were evil, but that people fear them because they did not understand them.

At his spiritual core, it is extremely noble and honorable that Chris’s stuck to his ideals as a human, and discovered himself and true happiness; no matter how his journey ended. Throughout this book, despite it being told in a non-linear narrative, we see how the ultimate goal for Chris is “... to go to Alaska and embark on an ‘ultimate adventure’” (Krakauer, 51). In a society where so many people compromise their morals, bend their will for society, and commit atrocious actions in the pursuit of wealth, it is refreshing to see someone so committed to going the opposite way in the pursuit of self discovery and what makes one happy. While the adventure itself was ill-fated, it was amazing to
