13. The author’s views towards the subject are understanding, and appreciative for what Chris McCandless had done. The author could relate to Chris’s story as he had his own experiences hiking alone in the wild with no way of getting help. “I would go to Alaska, ski inland from the sea across thirty miles of glacial ice, and ascend this mighty nordwand. I decided, moreover, to do it alone.” (Krakauer, 135) This quote is about the author and his trek up the Stikine Ice Cap, like Chris he decided to adventure on his own, removing himself from society. This is why I feel the authors tone is understanding towards Chris’s story, since he can relate to him through his own experiences.
