Into the Wild

Posted: 2002-10-15 09:40 AM   
Just a quick response about Chris McCandlass. I read Into the Wild and being from Fairbanks (about 110 miles from the area of the bus) I can see what Chris was searching for. He definitely, however, had some problems. Alaska, Fairbanks in particular, get a lot of people that feel the need to get in touch with nature. Once they truly experience a TRUE Alaskan experience, the majority leave because it is not what they expected. -60 winters, no daylight, etc, is hard on a human being. He had no clue what he was getting into, so it would be like for me, going into the heart of southcentral Los Angeles looking like a skinhead. I wouldnt be prepared. :) I know you didn't ask for all this, but the book, or the character, while very good, bothered me.
Another one that is very good is one by the same author (Jon Krackhauer sp??), Into Thin Air. About the worst climbing disaster on Mt. Everest.
