Throughout the novel “Into the Wild” the character Mccandless had planned to leave off on his own to explore the forest of Alaska. Mccandless was the son of a wealthy parents, he left them with the intention to show or prove something to himself and his family, after he left without telling them. He had donated all his money he had earned and gave it all to charity and practically gave up all his possessions. This young man was not prepared to be out in the wild since he did not have the right equipment and food supplies to survive out in the wild. He was later found dead inside of a school bus that had been sitting in the wild for years.
In April, 1992 a young man named Chris McCandless walked into the Alaskan bush never to be seen or heard from again. He entered the bush with minimal supplies- a firearm, ammunition, a ten pound bag of rice, a small library, and a few other basic survival items- and confidence in his abilities to survive (Krakauer, 162). Four months later, six hunters found the remains of his decomposing body inside an abandoned bus amidst the thick vegetation of the Alaskan wilderness (Krakauer, 13) . Upon hearing Chris’ story locals and critics promptly labeled him as an “ill-prepared kook”, but were they right? If his critics were correct, then McCandless would not have survived quite as long as he did in complete solitude.
This neighborhood was full of violence, all other kids were up to no good. However Geoffrey and his three brothers weren't, they came into the neighborhood as a clean slate.They moved here around when Geoffrey was four years old and this where the term “violence” was introduced. With their mom raising them with no dad that lead for the boys to grow up with no guidance from a male figure in this tough neighborhood.The quote “Paradise didn’t last long the day after our arrival my mother sent my brother Daniel to the store with ten dollars...Dan, only nine, came back solemn and scared, and announced he’d been robbed” (13) proves that even though Geoffrey and his brothers were young that didn’t mean anything. They still would still get into altercations like this as if they were older and it’s shocking to Geoffrey. Not knowing what to do they called police because they’re not used to this behavior, the beginning of the quote where it says “paradise didn’t last long “ shows they’re new to the neighborhood wasn’t expecting something like this to happen.
Chris was incredibly careless with some of the most important things a man has in life including life itself. Chris lacked the skill to correctly extract and preserve the meat of the moose that he poached while staying at the bus. The man that gave Chris a ride to the Stampede Trail realized how underprepared Chris was and gave him a pair of boots and even his lunch. Chris’ gear was cheap and otherwise improper. The knowledge that Chris had of the Alaskan wilderness is represented by his simple blunder concerning the change in the river crossing from spring to summer.
The life of Chris McCandless took many routes, to running away, to meeting new people,to graduating University, to living in the wild, to seeing his parents going through problems and lastly eating animals. He 's been through alot and still stayed humbled through everything with a positive attitude. When Chris McCandless discovered the "magic bus" his life changed forever with that bus.

In fact, the guard stated, “Nine hours here, and now nine hours back… What a day.” Stanley “felt a little sorry for the guard and the bus driver” for putting them through the trouble.

When he is hiding his pet pigeon, Nipper, from the world who wants to kill him, he accidentally left one of Nipper’s toys in his room for the critics to see.

Chris McCandless was a young man who left society behind entirely to fulfill his dream of the Alaskan adventure and escape the reality of life. After burning the last of his money and changing his name to Alexander Supertramp, McCandless migrated throughout the states and unfortunately was immensely unprepared for his journey; he only carried a ten-pound bag of rice, a small rifle, and a tattered road map. Consequently, McCandless dies due to his overconfidence and unpreparedness, which in turn makes everyone curious as to why he embarked on a journey while being so vulnerable. Arguably, Chris McCandless was a noble idealist who wanted abandonment from the falsehood of society and a feel of what nature could give. Chris McCandless wanted to
