Into the Wild

Why do you think Jon Krakauer is still alive today while all of the other men have died?

In chapters 14-15 it describes Krakauer's adventures, but while all of the other men, died, he didn't. Why is this?

Krakauer mentions a few counter-culture adventurers who had died in their endeavors to be "true." Karakauer shares many of their traits but he does remain grounded in many that people like Chris was not. Krakauer recognizes that he owes the people close to him more respect than just disappearing. He finds meaning with family and seems to understand that these ties, for good or for bad, are not disposable.
