He never met his father, but knew only that he was a white man. During this time, he witnessed the first-hand horrors and mistreatment of slaves and spent many days hungry and cold.

I do admire him for everything he did to be happy. Americans tend to believe that Chris McCandless has been just plain crazy. I do agree with that because everything that he did never went well.

I had a good house, but who would think my life was a disaster? Everything deteriorated quickly when my father died.
