Into The Wild
By: Nicole & Xiomary

"Chris didn't think twice about risking his own life" (128). "Ten months after Chris's death...[Carine] can't seem to get through a day without crying...the worst is when [she is] in the car by [herself]" (129).
Ch18 The Stampede Trail
Ch 1 The Alaska Interior
"hitchhiker standing in the snow beside the road, thumb raised high...eighteen, maybe nineteen at most"(3). "Five feet seven or eight with a wiry build, he claimed to be twenty-four years old and said he was from South Dakota" (4). "There was just no taking the guy out of it...he was determined. Real gung ho. The world that comes to mind is excited. He couldn't wait to head out there and get started" (6)
"S.O.S. I need your help. I am injured, near death, and too weak to hike out of here. I am all alone, this is no joke. In the name of God, please remain to save me. I am out collecting berries close by and shall return this evening. Thank you, Chris McCandless. August?" (12). "Chris McCandless had Been dead for two and a half weeks" (13)
Ch 2 The Stampede Trail
"Driving west out of Atlanta, he intended to invent an utterly new life for himself, one in which he would be free to wallow in unfiltered experience" (Krakauer 22-23). "If he started a job, he'd finish it. It was almost like a moral thing for him. He was what you'd call extremely ethical". (18)
CH 3 Carthage
"McCandless worked hard, doing dirty, tedious jobs that nobody else wanted to tackle: mucking out warehouses, exterminating vermin, painting, scything weeds" (62). "He acted like it was hard for him to be around people. [Borah] just figured that was because he'd spent so much time by himself" (63).
Ch 4 Detrital Wash
"McCandless could endeavor to explain that he answered to statutes of a higher order-that as a latter-day adherent of Henry David Thoreau, he took as gospel the essay"On the Duty of Civil Disobedience"and thus considered it his moral responsibility to flout the laws of the state" (28). "McCandless was exhilarated: He saw the flash flood as an opportunity to shed unnecessary baggage. He concealed the car as best as he could...He buried his Winchester deer-hunting rifle and a few other possessions that he might one day want to recuver" (29).
CH 7 Carthage
Ch 9 Davis Gulch
"I have not tired of the wilderness; rather I enjoy its beauty and the vagrant life I lead, more keenly all the time"(87). "Reading of these monks, one is moved by their courage, their reckless innocence, and the urgency of their desire"(97).
Ch13 Virginia Beach
Ch12 Annandale
"Rather than love, than money, than fame, give me truth" (epigraph). "As soon as [Carine] heard [Chris] was home...[she] ran to his room to talk with him...he was so thin. He looked like those paintings of Jesus on the cross" (118).
"Love of one's neighbor...
free personality...life as
sacrifice" (epigraph).
Ch 14 The Stikine Ice Cap
Ch 8 Alaska
"The prevailing Alaska wisdom held that McCandless was simply one more dreamy half-cocked greenhorn who went into the country expecting to find answers to all of his problems and instead found only mosquitoes and lonely death" (72). "Like Waterman and McCunn, he displayed a staggering paucity of common sense. But unlike Waterman, McCandless wasn't mentally ill. And unlike McCunn, he didn't go into the bush assuming someone would automatically appear to save his bacon before he came to grief" (85).
"Many of the entries in the brief, perplexing diary recovered with the body were tense observations of flora and fauna, which fueled speculation that McCandless was a field biologist"(99). "[Paul Harvey is] talking about some kid who starved to death in Alaska. The police don't know who he is. Sounds a whole lot like Alex" (100). "How do you tell someone their child is dead?" (102).
Ch 10 Fairbanks
"There was no one around, neither family nor people whose judgement you respected" (epigraph). "...Christopher Johnson McCandless came into the world with unusual gifts and a will not easily deflected from its trajectory" (106).
Ch11 Chesapeake Beach
"If this adventure proves to be fatal and you don't ever hear from me again I want you to know you're a great man. I know walk into the wild" (133-134). "The climb was over. The only place to go was down" (144).
Ch15 The Stikine Ice Cap
"[Chris McCandless] was not a clone of [his] father" (148). "[Chris's father] was merely human, and frightfully so, was beyond my power to forgive" (148).
"I wished to acquire the simplicity, native feelings, and virtues of savage life...I might experience the pleasure of suffering and the novelty of danger" (epigraph). "No longer to be poisoned by civilization he flees, and walks alone upon the land to become lost in the wild" (163) "I am reborn...real life has just begun" (168).
Ch16 The Alaska Interior
"An aesthetic voyager whose home is the road" (179). "[Chris's] life hummed with meaning and purpose" (184)
Ch17 The Stampede Trail

Nicole Connections:
1. There is a song that reminds me of what Chris might have been thinking of for his parents: I pray for you by: Jaron and the long road to love. 2.When I was little I use to play outside from morning to when it became too cold. Every kid wants to play until they can't play no more. Waste some energy, kicking a ball or chasing each other around playing tag. With every young mind it comes with not a care in the world. They Don't plan the next day out on schedule. They just go with the flow. Like Chris he did not plan his days out only the days that he would leave, other than that his plans were open to adventure. 3. The Magic School Bus, was a kid show about a class who was taught by Ms. Frizzle. Every day the class would go on an adventure. Whether it would be in another students digestive system or in a pie; they would go. In order to have these adventures they would travel on a bus that could change into anything they could need for transportation. Like Chris the class was on an adventure to learn something. Chris was on a Spiritual journey to find inner piece. While Ms. Frizzle and her class was on a journey to find out why things were what they were. Both were on a journey to learn something they didn't know before. 4. Here is another song. This song reminds me of the scene when Chris's mother woke up crying crying because she thought that she heard Chris's voice: for the first time by the script. 5. The story of Chris reminds me of Squidward from spongebob squarepants. Squidward is unhappy with his life so he moves to Squidville to get away from Spongbob and Patrick. He begins to fall in love with his new life without any bothersomes at all. Eventually Squidward begins to fall into a rut with his new life. In the end he moves back to Bikini Bottom for he realized that he was more at home there than anywhere else. Chris left home because he was unhappy with his life and went in search of a new one. He doesn't go to Squiville he goes on an adventure to Alaska. He wants to find inner peace by surrounding himself with a new life and people. He found what he was looking for, just like Squidward found what he was looking for. 6. i can connect Chris's adventure to the song knee deep by the zac brown band and the river by scotty
Xiomary Connections:
1. I kinda did what Chris did in the aspect of going out into the wild. I went with my mom and step-dad to Vermont and hiked and camped for a week. We saw a baby bear trying to find food. When we first got there the manager/person in charge didn't want us to feed the baby bear because then he would come around the camp site more often and they would have to get animal control up here to take him. But he was so cute when we saw him. It was the time for him to be on his own for awhile. In a way Chris and I got away from society for awhile, even though his was months and mine was just for a week. 2. My other connection is to the book The Secret Life of Bees. Lily also left her father because she was tired of his rudeness and for not loving her after her mother died. She went with a black woman named Rosaline and found a house where August lives with her two sister. She found peace and respect that she deserved. 3. The T.V show Supernatural is another connection that I think it would relate to Chris because Sam left home to go to college and couldn't handle that his dad treated him and his brother Dean like soldiers growing up after their mom past away. Everything had to be done his father's way. 4. The movie War of the Arrows is a good connection to Chris even though the situation was different. Nam-Yi lived most of his life in the woods after his father was killed. He took his sister with him, she was just a little girl at the time. But he lived off the land shooting arrows to get food. His sister lived in the village where both of them were raised by a friend of their father. 5. Ellen DeGeneres is similar to Chris because she gives money and cars to people that are in a tough patch in their lives and also donates to charities. 6. I am also similar to Chris because every year before school i will go ahead and get clothes that don't fit me anymore and give it to people that desperately needs it more than I do.
"It was an uncharacteristic break from his cover that might easily have alerted his parents to his whereabouts...When he talked he was always going on about trees and nature and weird stuff like that" (40). "McCandless had tried to disguise the fact the he was a drifter living out of a backpack: he told his fellow employees that he lived across the river in Laughlin'" (41).
Ch 5 Bullhead City
"We just have to have the courage to turn against our habitual lifestyle and engage in conventional living" (57).
"You will see things and meat people and there is much to learn from them. And you must do it economy style, no motels, do your own cooking, as a general rule spend as little as possible and you will enjoy it much more immensely" (58).
Ch 6 Anza-Borrego
