They doubted if the machines would be successful because “ The machines were new and it was [they] who were to prove them” (208).

As the ending comes to play, Sarty’s compliments become sparse. Which leads to the tones becoming different surrounding them. After Abner runs from the burning barn he spoke of his father in a courageous or heroic sense. Sarty’s mentioning, “He 's was in the war” (154) shows how he wanted those around him to remember his dad as a brave man and overlook him as an individual who burns barns.

He was noble and wise. He may not of been born into royalty or nobleness but after being in the war and being loved by the king of Rome, I consider that to be of nobleness.

He wanted to find a deeper meaning to life, which is why he went into the wild to live off of the land and be alone with his thoughts and nature just like his hero, Henry David Thoreau had. Even though this was extremely dangerous, to Chris it was worth it because he was willing to risk his life in order to live the way he wanted. I think many people can relate to this because they have dreams they are too afraid to pursue.
