As a minimum he should of brought enough food and clothing to sustain him until he could develop the skills he needed to survive in such a harsh environment. Craig Medred a columnist for the Anchorage Daily News best summed it up when he stated “Into the Wild is a misrepresentation, a sham, a fraud.
