Into the Wild

Journal 3; chapter 16,18, and epilogue

"But despite the relative proximity of the bus to civilization, for all practical purposes

McCandless was cut off from the rest of the world. He spent nearly four months in the

bush all told, and during that period he didn't encounter another living soul."(Krakauer 165).


This makes me think of the quote because Chris cut himself from the rest of the world intentionally, he enjoyed being alone. Chris liked the natural way of living and with no civilization.

Traps to Caught Food

"It was slow going. In order to feed himself, he had to devote a large part of each day

to stalking animals."(Krakauer 165).


Chris would read this article because he would be able to caught food faster.

Next to "And so it turned out that only a life similar to the life of those around us, merging with it without a ripple, is genuine life, and that an unshared happiness is not happiness. .. . And this was most vexing of all," he noted, "HAPPINESS ONLY REAL."(Krakauer 189).

Preserving Meat in the Wilderness

preserving meat

"Believing that it was morally indefensible to waste any part of an animal that has been shot for food, McCandless spent six days toiling to preserve what he had killed before it spoiled" (Krakauer 166).


Chris does not like to waste an animals live unless he is going to use it all, he would need to preserve the rest of the moose to keep from going to waste.
