Death's a fierce meadowlark:
but to die having made
Something more equal to centuries
Than muscle and bone, is mostly to shed weakness.
The mountains are dead stone, the people
Admire or hate their stature, their insolent quietness,
The mountains are not softened or troubled
And a fewdead men's thoughts have the same temper.

Who is Christopher McCandless:
Chris was an American wanderer who hiked into the Alaskan wilderness with little food and equipment, hoping to live a period of solitude. Almost four months later he died of starvation near Denali National Park and Preserve. Inspired by the details of McCandless' story, author Jon Krakauer wrote a book about his adventures, published in 1996, entitled Into the Wild.
