A year ago my family and I went to Big Bear amid winter. We did snowboarding and did a pit fire around evening time and simply have a ton of fun. My experiences were fun but not risky and stunning voyages like three remarkable men who really live in nature. Chris McCandless yet change his name to Alexander Supertramp,a talented man who left his ordinary life to accomplish his fantasy of living in Alaska. Timothy Treadwell was a moderately aged man who had gone through 13 summers living with grizzlies ' bears. Aron Ralston a man who left his parents and quit his job to go in Aspen, Colorado in order to pursue a life of climbing mountains. McCandless, Treadwell, and Ralston are three extraordinary

For Chris McCandless he thought society was a corrupt and evil institution. This was stated in an article What were Chris McCandless views on society and his family? "He thought that society was a corrupt and evil institution. He tried as hard as he could to distance himself from the limits that he thought society placed on people 's lives. He agreed with people such as Hen, David Thoreau, who believed that wc needed to simplify our lives and only then can we live with t. most happiness and meaning." (Enotes). Before even thinking of leaving e was loaded (rich), had college degree, and parent who wanted to spoil him denied all that. He donated 25,000 dollars to OXFAM which was ironic for a something that happen to him and he burned his wallet which had all his information. McCandless view was way different to Treadwell 's view. His view was nothing his only view was to love and protect the bears As stated once again in the documentary Grizzly Man he says "I 'm in love with my animal friends. I 'm in love with my animal friends! In love with my animal friends I 'm very, very troubled. It 's ve, emotional. It 's probably not cool even looking like these. I 'm so in love with them, and they 're so fed over, which so sucks." (Treadwell). He thought human were too stupid to liver around and that bears are better this is much related to Dian Fossey. Aron Ralston did really hated society he just focuses on climbing. In his book he states “I feel like I 'm climbing as well if not better, than ever." (Ralston) His only view was to climb; he just saw society as a normal

    He seems to be growing stronger than the other way around. Because the dogs and Grey Beaver grant him little love, White Fang must learn to deal with the natural enmity the other puppies have for him and to accept he and his master’s mutual and expressionless relationship (52). For a wolf-cub who has sought liberation from the hands of the Indians for the longest time, I was surprised that White Fang would event attempt to go back to Grey Beaver. My belief was that once White Fang left he was sure to be a goner, especially since he hated Lip-lip and the other dogs’ beating so much. I guess fear can drive one to do the unexpected.…

    Some say that humanity is a choice. That one can choose to lose themselves to an animalistic nature that lies buried within. It is not a choice to be savage, but it is something that is hidden in all people, hidden by the basic and tedious manners that are considered necessary in a high functioning society. In the novel Lord of the Flies, written by William Golding, it definitely seems that the boys lose sight of their humanity and fall prey to the “Horrors underneath” that lay dormant in all humans (Snow). All it took for them to let go was isolation from adults and from their prim and proper way of living.…

    The work of Timothy Treadwell, since its beginnings, has been incredibly divisive as people continue to argue over the effects it had on the bears and their preservation. Werner Herzog aims to highlight this divide, as well as assert his own views, in the film Grizzly Man. While there is no uncertainty that Treadwell views the Grizzlies to be misunderstood creature which may be safely interacted with using certain techniques, Herzog seems to view them as wild, unpredictable animals, ultimately making Treadwell’s actions seem foolish. Through the way in which the film progresses and interviews with differing perspectives on Treadwell, Herzog is able to effectively communicate his opinions on Treadwell. Due to the obvious absence of Treadwell,…
