In order to understand the context of the quote by Peterson, it is crucial to understand the different aspects of Isle Royale. Wolves, moose, vegetation, birds, foxes, and ticks inhabit the landscape of Isle Royale, who all contribute to the dynamics that occur on this island. Isle Royale is a 210-square-mile area, located 15-20 miles off of the coast of Ontario in Canada, in Lake Superior (pg.11). Although
The wilderness is a great home for many different species of animals to inhabit. Such animals include polar bears, caribou, dall sheeps and wolves. It would be such a tragic that such a great habitat would be demolished. The Arctic National Refuge is a magnificent, and quoted, the last great wilderness. It has been mentioned that the wilderness will be consumed by "a web of roads and pipelines, drilling rigs and industrial facilities".
This information can acquired by reading, “Mammalian Species, Canis Lupus” by David L Mech. The North American Wolf Reintroduction After reading the article “Yellows Stone After Wolves”, we can see that within Yellowstone National Park, wolves, specifically gray wolves, are being reintroduced after nearly being hunted to extinction during the 19th and 20th centuries. Many people are not in favor of this due to fear of losing livestock, threats to humans, and even the destabilization of ecosystems due to wolves being major predators. Another park that wolves were reintroduced into was Isle Royale National Park, in which the wolves thrive, there are no reports of

The main character is Gary Paulsen the author of the book. Paulsen displays clear qualities of ingenuity, survivability, determination, and wisdom. His view on animal life will strike many as controversial, as he raises animal worth to a level almost comparable to that of humans. The only other characters in the story are Paulsen’s sled dog team. The book starts with Paulsen retelling a story in which he watched wolves kill and devour a deer in the woods.
The writer of Into the Wild and the director of Grizzly Man apply similar characterization to Chris and Timothy 's story to show alienation from society, through the character 's anger. Werner Herzog character Timothy Treadwell isolates himself because of his anger towards the government. He believes that the government is ¨challenging” him. ¨They don 't take care of the animals, they don 't watch them, they just screw people around by letting the fishermen, poachers and tourist mess with the animals¨. In documentary Grizzly man, Timothy curses at the park services thinking there his enemy, he will fights civilization.
Chris McCandless was considered out of the normality because he wanted to travel to Alaska by hitchhiking, and live in the wilderness (Krakauer 32). Timothy Treadwell was considered out of the normality because he wanted to go live with the bears in the Alaskan wilderness believing he was going to help them (“The Bear Man”). When Chris McCandless and Timothy Treadwell died it was in a coincidental way. Chris McCandless had donated $24,000 dollars to OXFAM a charity to stop hunger and in the end he died from hunger (Krakauer 72). Timothy Treadwell went to go help the bears and in the end he died from a bear attack (“The Bear
The author also heavily describes the main character’s interactions with the wolf. He touches the “cold and perfect teeth” and puts his hands upon it’s “bloodied forehead.” By stating these tangible aspects of the main character’s experience with the wolf, it conveys that he is in awe of this creature, symbolizing the impact the wolf had on him.
His reign led to many rebellions, which obviously caused many people to lose their lives. If you resisted and your life ended, the lives of your relatives could also be taken to weed out any possible traitors. (Which I found rather brutal.) Also, if one were to be conquered and not killed, enslaved, or imprisoned, they’d be taxed heavily. As stated before, the Mongols were ordered to destroy the farmlands to make room for pasture, which led to the starvation of many people.
