As the narrator, Krakauer is a reliable source of information since the book is his own personal account of the disaster. The setting of Into Thin Air is Mount Everest, where Krakauer and his team climbed in 1996. All through the struggle up Everest, it is important to note that the characters portrayed in this book are real people. The unique conditions and the weather of the setting forced the climbers to make choices that they could not have made in a different situation. The tough choices made by the climbers and the setting influenced the result of the story.

As if she was living inside the cage, but she feel happy and safe in those cage. The two characters Elisa and tinker play an important part of the story and show what chrysanthemum mean in the story. The surround area of valley in “The Chrysanthemums”, John Steinbeck use mountain and fog to give imagery and gives the reader an idea of where the story take place. John Steinbeck describes, “The high gray-flannel fog of winter closed off the Salinas Valley from the sky and from all the rest of the world. On every side it sat like a lid on the mountains and made of the great valley a closed pot” (Steinbeck 1).
I'm going to be talking about John Colter and Tom Murphy's disadvantages and advantages when they were out exploring. And how hard it must have been on both of them to go out in the freezing cold, by themselves. They had to take care of themselves. It was a cold night up in Yellow Stone, when John Colter was walking around out there all by himself in the freezing cold, he even had to build his own shelter which was probably hard, so when John Colter finally had found such a good spot to put his shelter. He started building it he had a tarp and he said you have to tie the knights not too tight because it's cold out and you don’t want to sit there trying to untie knots but you have to tie it to a sturdy tree branch or a big stick that has fallen from a tree.
Conquering fear is not nor will ever be a smooth path, mountains and valleys are a part of the path. Prayer and friends as a backup is also a necessity for the journey. Only time will tell if and when a child or adult no longer fears thunderstorms, heights, and even fate itself. Alden Nowlan left an wonderful example of two different fears with an easy method to drive the fear to oblivion.

He said, “Not a chance.” Fiona present to us an interesting moment of lucidity with her statement. The title of the story is based on the song The Bear Went Over The Mountain. In Munro's story, the bear has indeed come over the mountain. We may think that the other side of the mountain looks different and is perhaps more exciting, but the reality of it is that life eventually descends into old age and then death, with illness sometimes thrown into the mix. The other side is not only the same, it's often downhill and rough.
Keep in mind he was a “professional” and was supposed to guide the group. Even after being seven people down the rest of the group continued to climb up the mountain. They did not turn back until the weather got worse, on their way down they were caught in a complete blizzard where visibility was almost completely gone. At this point they made the decision to make a snow cave shelter. They managed to survive the night and the next morning a student and professional mountaineer hiked for 16 hours until they found help.
Whelan offers an intriguing reading casting Michael Furey nearly as a ghost that haunts Gabriel, personified in the story by the ubiquitous snow and cold. If this be true, Michael Furey is a much more important character to the story than previously thought. Whether it is the cool air of the Conroys’ hotel room or the death of cold that Mrs. Malins is supposedly going to get, Furey is a fairly constant presence in the story. Particularly haunting is the end scene where “Gabriel 's attention is directed to the snow outside by ‘a few light taps upon the pane,’ recalling Michael 's efforts to attract Gretta 's attention by throwing gravel up at her window,” (Whelan). Contrastingly, Morrissey’s text portrays Michael Furey as little more than someone “whom he [Gabriel] would rather forget,” (Morrissey 27).
Most of those flashbacks involved snow and that’s what drives him closer to believing that this is where it all ends, close to the Snows of Kilimanjaro. His path to transform in another dimension was not easy, he had to find himself, himself as a writer and not some beggar that molests women. Through these significant experience of his, we can identify many elements of the sacred and the profane. In the story, the leopard that was mentioned serves as a representation of strength and grace, which contradicts Harry’s personality. “Close to the western summit there is the dried and frozen carcass of a leopard” (Hemingway 1).
