They had to build and farm on the Canyon floor where there was space, but when the water rose, they took to the higher caves” (Condie 128). If the river did not flood in the location where the farmers’ village was in, then the farmers would still be in the village. This is a prime example of Chapter Thirteen, “Geography Matters”, from Foster’s How to Read Literature Like a Professor For Kids because having the farmer’s village in a easily flooded area makes the farmers’ village far more useless for Cassia, Ky, Vick, Indie, and Eli than it could have been, making the plot take a different turn for the better. This shows that geography does matter because it changes what could have happened in the story and has a big impact on the story . Being there would help reunite Ky and Cassia faster since they both passed the township at different times, find the Rising faster, and they could give knowledge on the carving which would then help Cassia, Indie, Ky, and Eli navigate through the carving faster and easier.

Kane is being hunted by his rival, and Rainsford by general Zaroff, another hunter. “In marshals office Kane signs his name to what he has written folds it and writes on it ‘to be opened in the event of my death,”(Foreman 326). He’s so sure he’s going to die that he writes his own will.

On April 28, 1992 McCandless hitchhiked to the Stampede Trail in Alaska starting down the snow covered trail with only 10 pounds of rice, a 22 caliber rifle, a camera and a guide on edible plants. It has been documented that a friend offered to buy him more suitable clothing and some better suited supplies but he refused to accept the offer. McCandless may had wanted to test himself but it is somewhat foolish to venture out in the wilderness so ill equipped with little to no experience on survival in the Alaskan wilderness. 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.
Fred first shows selflessness with his decision to find the bridge so the younger children wouldn’t have to endure the harsh cold as long. “Fred volunteered to go scouting. If he could find the bridge, he’d clear a path and then come back for the others. Fred was gone for half an hour while the rest of them stood around the dying fire” (Laskin 161). This action shows selflessness very well because Fred could have easily stayed behind and had someone else do the job instead, but instead he immediately volunteers to go into a storm that he could get lost and die in within minutes of exposure.
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.
