Into The Wild “Although he was rash, untutored in the ways of the backcountry, he wasn 't incompetent—he wouldn 't have lasted 113 days if he were”. This comment from Jon Krakauer’s book Into the Wild conveys his belief that young Christopher McCandless who is the focus of his novel may have been young and inexperienced in regards to the Alaskan wilderness but he was capable of basic survival as he had demonstrated during his many day’s surviving the brutal environment of the Alaskan frontier.

Others might think this because her family had not gotten a share of the profits from Henrietta 's cells. However Henrietta herself did not face adversity, but her family had to face the adversity because they found out what scientists did with her cells twenty years after her death, and had never seen any money from it. Also all Lacks had to do was die to face adversity, while Mawson had to walk through an endless wasteland without food or warmth to make it back to his camp. Mawson also had to eat his own dog and tape the sole of his foot back on just to survive in the antarctic. Another reason why people might think Lacks faced more adversity is because she was poor and faced racial discrimination.
