He was only 25 years old when he died of starvation. Everyone he encountered and got close to thought he was following his dreams. His adventure into the Alaskan wilderness was all he talked about with his parents when he started college. At the beginning of each chapter of Into the Wild, there are quote(s) that relate to each chapter.

“His master’s voice acted on Buck like an electric shock, He sprang to his feet and ran up the bank ahead of the men to the point of his previous departure,” (London, 100). This quote is saying that, ever since Buck was saved (Hal was beating Buck to death) by John Thornton (Buck’s last and one of his better treating owners) Buck felt he has to repay him so when he saw John in trouble he went after him not thinking about himself only about his owner’s life. “In the summers there is one visitor, however, to that valley...

While Chris was adventuring out in the turran, the the river he crossed to get to the trailer (where he lives) started to get higher and was fericing flowing with water, making it impossible to cross. Chris started to run out of food and realized his simplicity might be the death of him, however, he did have a shotgun and a edible plants book and was able to carry on with eating meat he caught and plants he found. Sadly, even though Chris had a book of what not to eat and what to eat, he ‘misstepped’ and ate the wrong plant. A plant he thought was edible was actually a plant that would make it impossible for him to digest anything, furthing leading him to starve to death. Chris and the man were both simple men that travel into the

Mandie Morin Out of shape and out of breath, I stumbled through the overgrown grass. The trail I was struggling with never seemed to tire me as a child. Justifiably, I didn’t work twelve hours a day at an office job at nine years old. With pebbles in my shoes, I was headed to my late Uncle Jeff’s camp. I spent all of my childhood summers splashing in the river, painting several pictures of trees, and being eaten by mosquitos at that camp.

In order to provide for the year-round demand, Johnnie hired trusted friends to hunt pheasants, a majority of the time out-of-season. After a successful hunt, they hid the birds at predetermined locations inside of haystacks, the seemingly definitive South Dakota concealment. Subsequently, Johnnie made regular rounds to the haystacks to collect the pheasants, after which he drove the over one thousand mile round trip to buyers in Illinois.

If a farmer occasionally shot a pheasant off his own property to feed his family, Maxwell could forgive the transgression.
