    The Queen conceives - hurrah! Much of the disputed material centers on Krakauer's accounting of the actions of Russian climber and guide Anatoli Boukreev. Fault Of Pot[ato] Seed" [5] [6] Based on this entry, Krakauer hypothesized that McCandless had been eating what he thought was the roots of an edible plant, Hedysarum alpinumcommonly known as wild Eskimo potatowhich are sweet and nourishing in the spring but later become too tough to eat. The power and luminosity of Jon Krakauer's stoytelling blaze through every page. Then a fourth will gain far more riches than all of them; as soon as he becomes strong through his riches, he will arouse the whole empire against the realm of Greece.

    For all the successful tourist climbs and tourists that visit the mountain with expert sherpas, the is still a formidable, unpredictable force. Krakauer interprets McCandless' intensely ascetic personality as possibly influenced by the writings of Henry David Thoreau and McCandless' favorite writer, Jack London.

The sheer hardness of life, the implausibility of any full liberation, emerges as a dominant theme.

    It has everything I love in it, except for polish sausages, but that is a tale for another day. But as soon as he has arisen, his kingdom will be broken up and parceled out toward the four points of the compass, though not to his own descendants, nor according to his authority which he wielded, for his sovereignty will be uprooted and given to others besides them. The priest, fearing the arm of the Inquisition, flees to Spain, there to die. He was, in his own words, overwhelmed and intoxicated by neurosurgery — feelings which I certainly shared when I started my own neurosurgical training 35 years ago. All the while a self-conscious narrator keeps breaking in with jokes, aphorisms, a scale of ironies and critical observations ''After all,'' he explains, ''this is a fairy tale''. Immediately after graduating from college inMcCandless had roamed through the West and Southwest on a vision quest like those made by his heroes Jack London and John Muir.

Though Mr. Although in a few hours we would leave camp as a group, we would ascend as individuals, linked to one another by neither rope nor any deep sense of loyalty. It is a love of, and on, this earth. What excites his imagination is the conflict between a stiff moralism of morals, manners and speech - those social and ecclesiastic rituals denoting the death of spirit - and a free play of feeling at a time when the idea of individuality has begun to stir European consciousness.
