In the book it read that “Chris McCandless had way to light of a load to be out in the woods for several months”p4. This proves that Christopher McCandless was underestimating nature when he decided to go into the wild and was confident that he understood nature well enough to survive off of that very light load. When Christopher McCandless was asked by Gallien if he was sure he was ready to go into the wild he never had doubt in his plans, he was eager to start! The text summarizes that Chris was very confident about walking into the wild that no matter what people said he was extremely excited to go to Alaska p6. This piece of evidence is important to analyze because it provides evidence that McCandless underestimated Alaska and believed he would be just fine.
It is not like hunting when you will and power bring you the greatest reward. You must be humble and open minded. The sioux boy in this story thought he was the greatest. He thought that nothing could stop him and that his vision should be like hunting a buffalo, where you track it down and use your strength to capture it, when it is more like starting a fire, where you must be more patient to

The reader gets to join McCandless in his adventure across the country as he invents a new life for himself. He embraces the ideas and morals of Thoreau and Emerson in his journey. In the book, a man by the man by the name of Westerberg discusses about how McCandless is not destroying his possessions and journey around the wild because the wild he is suicidal or unintelligent. “You could tell right away that Alex was intelligent…He always had to know the absolute right answer before he could go on to the next thing.” (Krakauer 18).

Hopefully they 'll make it, but all Jamie knew for sure he will give that buck one more chance. The safety clicked and frightened the gorgeous deer. The young deer disappear into the prickly underbrush. Jamie lets out a heavy breath and shuffles towards the house. The warm yellow light guides him home as the wind bites through his coat.
I found that a theme of this book is man and the natural world. Buck obviously experiences starvation, exhaustion, and bitter cold. In the city, he would never experience something like this. Buck has to find a way to survive and he does by becoming the leader of a wolf pack and taking care of a litter of baby wolves. Clearly, this book was a good classic novel to read.
All things entirely easy for people to comprehend. McPhee 's personification of the bear creates a foundational for readers to relate to the bear and feel the same pull to protect themselves and their brethren and enact revenge upon any that pose as or act on a threat. It is refreshingly simplistic in comparison to the complex, conniving ways of human society, and that simplicity of nature in and of itself is a beautiful thing. It appeals to the primitive side of humans, persuading them to act on their basic urges like the grizzly bear does in the
I believe that Touching Spirit Bear is Fascinating book to read and it describes what’s happening at the moment and it’s also Action packed in the chapter’s. The book is mostly about a boy named Cole that goes to an island and see’s a big white bear. Some important parts is that he destroys his cabin then he tries to kill the bear he saw. Although Cole attacked the bear, he didn’t get far with it. Because when Cole through the first punch and hit the bear and it lunged at Cole and attacked him.
First of all Rainsford would hunt again since he is a big game hunter and is very passionate about what he does. He is passionate in what he does because when Rainsford and Whitney are on the boat Whitney tells him “You’ve good eyes,”... [and that he has] seen [him] pick off a moose moving in the brown fall bush at four hundred yards-” (Connell 19). Rainsford is so heartfelt about hunting that he has had so much experience about hunting therefore he has developed good eyesight which means that he enjoys and wouldn’t give up his skills. Another reason that he would continue hunting is that he believes that hunting is the “best sport in the world” (Connell 19). He would resume hunting because the only reason that Rainsford got on the boat was
“It is a very great pleasure and honor to welcome Mr. Sanger Rainsford, the celebrated hunter, to my home…[General Zaroff] read [Rainsford’s] book about hunting snow leopards in Tibet…” (Connell, 4) This shows Rainsford has prior knowledge of hunting that later helps him in the story when his hunting skills are tested. In the movie Castaway by Robert Zemekis, Chuck Noland survived by using his resources and rethinking past acquaintances so that he could build a raft, weave a rope, and cut down trees for logs. If Chuck didn’t have the consciousness of how to build a fire using two sticks, he wouldn’t have lived for as long as he did. As you can see, General Zaroff, Rainsford, and Chuck Noland all had prior experience to go on a long
