Transcript of Into the wild Symbols

The moose
Yellow Datsun
The magic bus
Desserts: Meaning to challenge himself. He fears deserts as if they have been put there to test him.

Money is a symbol of greed in this book. It is viewed as an enemy. Chris decides to take action and burn all of his money, plus leaving his car behind.
After he kills the moose, he is unable to save the meat for the time that could have saved him from starving to death. He fails to live up with the wild and it's hardship to human needs.
Rivers are like the deserts. They are a test of survival for Chris. Though, unlike the deserts, the river is what killed him.
The yellow datsun is emblematic in Chris's disinterest in material items. Most Americans value their cars, Chris did not.
Magic bus: He sees this bus as a good fortune. This bus keeps him alive during his time in Alaska till he becomes trapped when spring comes around.

The sleeping bag is what Chris died in. It symbols a dire need to escape due to the greed of people and the authority he dealt with.
