Into the Wild

Read & Download Into the Wild ß PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook What would possess a gifted young man recently graduated from college to literally walk away from his life Noted outdoor writer and mountaineer Jon Krakauer tackles that uestion in his reporting on Chris McCandless whose emaciated. My grandfather not an Alaskan but an experienced outdoorsman would have tied this kid to a tree and let the bears play tetherball with himA small part of me appreciates the effort Krakauer put into researching this book A much bigger part of me is completely disgusted both with McCandless himself and with Krakauer s mindless adoration of him Krakauer pulls out all the stops to make McCandless look like a phenomenon and seems to agree with McCandless that the world should have handed itself to him on a silver salver because he was just so darned special We re told he was brilliant independent funny kind musical athletic visionary talented Can you see the halo Unfortunately the impression that comes across is of a snotty adolescent who has never seriously thought of anyone but himself and is used to getting by on charm and flippancy rather than making good use of his considerable gifts and I do not doubt that he was gifted The conflicting aspects of his personality don t sound uirky they sound devious and self servingKrakauer tries half heartedly to disguise his fascination but his admissions that McCandless was a clueless young hothead sound insincere he has to say it to sound credible to his readers who are less smitten Krakauer makes an apt comparison between himself as an idealistic and foolhardy young man and McCandless and then dismisses himself because he didn t have McCandless intellect This sounds utterly bogus after all we have been told about McCandless foolish mistakes and the obvious fact that Krakauer is not stupid Two chapters that could have provided some insight into his hero are wasted because Krakauer sounds like a religious fanatic with McCandless as his unknowable God and Krakauer as the I m not worthy followerMcCandless and Everett Ruess overconfidence speaks to a fascination with nature but not a respect for it Courage is not the same as not knowing when we ought to have a healthy degree of fear Instead McCandless arrogantly drives his car into the habitat of an endangered species of poppy He butchers a moose wasting the life of a beautiful and well adapted animal because he could not be bothered to learn ahead of time how to preserve itThis was not a tragedy this was inevitable I don t believe he was schizophrenic or suicidal Bipolar or ADD maybe His own friends readily admitted that he had a lot of enthusiasm but little common sense and didn t know much outside of academia There are so many glaring outdoorsmanship errors made in the first two chapter that even I was cringingI write this with full admission that I am not much of an outdoorsperson However I don t believe for a minute that he lasted longer than most of us would have or that at least he tried it as so many of his fans insist I wouldn t try it not because I m scared but because I can tell from here that ten pounds of rice and no preparation is a recipe for failure I don t need to try it and if I did I d want to live to get something out of it Lots of other people have gone into the wilderness and come out just fine because they knew the magnitude of their own insignificance and planned aheadI m not jealous of his alleged brilliance either I was accepted to Emory And the University of Chicago And a couple of other amply respected schools Lots of people are Big deal1 His bourgeois status made his adventure possible in the first place He had money to pay his college tuition the rest of us graduated and went to work to pay off our loans He also had the gall to complain about his parents offers to help him out which smacks of a kid given so much that he doesn t know how fortunate he isFurther living with nothing by choice is very different from living with nothing because you have no alternative Though I m sure he would have denied it McCandless had the option of going back to his affluent life if he had wanted to or if he had had to in an emergency Maybe it would have knocked his self image for a loop but he would have been sheltered fed and nursed back to health A lot of people live in poverty without that safety net 2 Now is not the time to be sueamish about killing animals Hint There are no vegetarian Aleut This guy was a history and anthropology major I learned in anthro that you can eat plants and lean protein until you burst and still starve to death if you aren t getting enough calories It s very difficult to feed yourself if you re alone and don t have a lot of practice at it3 If he got this idea from Thoreau and London he wasn t reading very carefully McCandless should have read less Thoreau and Donner Party London s Alaskan experience was during the Klondike Gold Rush when he had plenty of help from others Thoreau lived in a cabin on the edge of town a mile and a half from the family home He was not in the wilderness Further Thoreau s civil disobedience was a protest against the Mexican War and slavery not a petty defiance of matters of public safety such as mandatory car insurance McCandless was a rebel without a cause4 Book smart can t save you now Success only learning does not work Krakauer goes into raptures about McCandless education and intelligence to demonstrate the supposed tragedy of his loss Nice brain gymnastics but apples to oranges when what you need is practical knowledgeThis guy was idolized by some my college classmates most of whom were sheltered relatively wealthy urbanites They had the same vague and pathetic need for real experiences and arrogant expectation of success that comes from never having failed at anything in their lives5 For most of his trip McCandless was neither independent or self reliant He got lost in Mexico it would have been self reliant to get a map and take charge of his own navigation He didn t eat for days until somebody felt sorry for him and fed him Once he was in a situation where there was nobody to step in for him he died in this respect I disagree with Krakauer that McCandless was any different from Carl McCunn Even at that point he left a note on the door of the bus begging for rescueThe best and most independent outdoorsmen spend years learning Just because you were a superstar student and athlete doesn t mean you get to skip all the hard work I ve no doubt that McCandless was smart but he was mind bogglingly ignorant and inexperienced6 Why are these self discovery escapades always so self centered How about joining the Peace Corps Teaching in inner city schools Working in healthcare in a remote South Asian village If you re so disgusted with society why don t you do something to improve it rather than keeping all the enlightenment for yourself7 Nature is not your babysitter Nature doesn t care if you live or die It s survival of the fittest and humans compared to most animals are slow weak poorly armed poorly insulated have no stamina have poor senses of smell eyesight and hearing and are ill adapted to go without clean water and food for any length of time We are clearly meant to live in groups and use tools This guy didn t even bring an ax8 He was already controlled and tainted by society or else he would not have worked so hard to avoid it His anti society and anti materialism were as controlling of him as is the materialism of those who think they can find themselves by buying the right clothes or drug habit or SUV9 Unprepared people who set out on ill planned adventures and need to be rescued are jackasses A lot of other people better prepared better trained and sensible people such as park service volunteers and EMT s end up spending a lot of time and money and risking their own necks to save them McCandless spared everyone that trouble but I m sure there s a whole line of wannabes lined up to try it I hope they have to pay back every penny spent on their rescuesAnd Truth The bad news is that Truth is relative It doesn t exist in a vacuum What a waste
