This book is filled with dramatic irony as the reader knows what happens to Chris. The tale unfolding in this chapter gives us glimpses into Chris's world from a different point of view. Chapter Three’s initial small-town South Dakota setting establishes a tone far different from the days of Chris's youth. Krakauer relates McCandless’s hard work at Westerberg’s barley harvest and then at his grain elevator. This gives us a more rounded view of Chris's sincerity in terms of work ethic.
