The Word

The last person to see Chris McCandless before he wandered off Into the Wild, on why he didn’t alert any authorities:

     Gallien briefly considered stopping and telling the authorities about Alex [McCandless], then thought better of it. “I figured he’d be OK,” he explains. “I thought he’d probably get hungry pretty quick and just walk out to the highway. That’s what any normal person would do.”

– Jon Krakauer, Into the Wild
