Not until we are lost do we begin to understand ourselves-Henry David ThoreauMany believe that nature holds answers to ones life problems when actually it can only bring more difficulties and if not prepared for the journey it can certainly lead to death One can simply solve their troubles by talking to those they trust Your problems wont be solved by running away from them instead you will just get lost In Into the Wild the author John Krakauer writes about a man named Christopher Johnson McCandless and the journey he took to get to Alaska in which he meet new people and got acquainted with who gave him rides to and from destinations Christopher McCandless would cover up his identity by using a false name in which he would present himself as Alexander Supertramp The author interviews friends and family in which were close to Christopher McCandless In the book the author uses many literary techniques that give the book a new view for the readers As Christopher McCandless begins his tramped journey he seems to have his own perspective thoughts about the meaning of life throughout the book John Krakauer shows the readers the people that Chris meets on his expedition and how their lifes get changed with one person whos trying to achieve his goalsThe book Into the Wild Christopher Johnson McCandless has begun his journey to hitchhike from Atlanta to Alaska As Chris begins his journey his last actions he did before leaving his family and town he lived he wrote a note telling them he was leaving and that will be the last they see of him he also donated his 24000 life savings to the OXFAM charity that fight against starvation It was the most ironic set in the book as Chris donates the money to fight hunger he himself dies of starvation Chris donated the money to show that money will not drive him mad like most
