When Alex entered the front door, his family members rushed to greet him. Alex simply replied, “Hey guys”, placed his bags on the floor and calmly sat down. Alex appeared drained and distant, he was home on thirty days’ vacation and already he seemed like he wanted to leave. That night I had the opportunity to meet with Alex alone. The first thing he told me was that he didn’t want to talk about his experiences.

Alex hitch hiked along the country for months, when he was in Arcata, California in the redwood forests he stopped on the side of the United States highway 101. Jan Burres and her boyfriend Bob noticed him and felt sorry so they offered him a ride. McCandless mentioned he was surviving on edible plant and was tramping around the country having adventures. He was also telling them about how he burned and buried his belongings because he didn’t need them.

Which is why I think he walked into the wild the way he did. When in school, he brought home nothing but good grades constantly.

Doodle and his family have crowded around this exotic, mysterious bird, “Daddy, Mama, and I went back to the dining-room table, but we watched Doodle through the open door. He took out a piece of string from his pocket and, without touching the ibis, looped one end around its neck. Slowly, while singing softly "Shall We Gather at the River," he carried the bird around to the front yard and dug a hole in the flower garden, next to the petunia bed. (Hurst)”, Doodle’s family watched went back inside, refusing to touch the bird. However, Doodle stayed and felt sympathy for the scarlet ibis, which resulted in a clumsily dug grave and quiet burial.
When Ethan was taking Mr. Hale to Corbury Flats during the icy winter months, Ethan was very cold to Mr. Hale every time they were together. Even when Hale was tried to make friendly conversation to Ethan all Hale saw was that “he never turned his face to mine” (7).
