Lepper enlisted thinking that he would travel and ski and he was not prepared for the hardships of war itself. I think that Lepper went crazy because he wasn't mentally ready for warfare and, internally he could not comprehend all the dreadful facts of war. Lepper needed to mature and grow as an individual before considering enlisting in the service. He didn't realize the responsibility and commitment of being a solider. Finny denied the war to himself and everyone else around him.

In relation to the book, Buck works long hard hours carrying the sled for Charles and Hal on his way to the Yukon, and he gets no reward except a small meal with no nutrition. Also, while London was in the Yukon he saw many prize dogs. “London must have seen some of the best husky teams in the area, probably witnessing more than one prize dog put through the test of breaking a heavily-laden sled out of the ice, whether or not as a result of a bet on the part of his master” (“Tale”). This relates to the part of the novel when Thorton makes a bet that Buck can pull the sled, which is loaded with 1,000 pounds of flour, for 100 yards.

Many people dream about leaving everything behind and starting a new life, but it’s not as easy as it seems. Learning how to adapt to a new environment may be a challenge.

I would classify Christopher McCandless as a fearless crazy guy, because he leaves his well-shaped life behind. McCandless is not prepared for his expedition to Alaska, because he’s not familiar with the different lifestyles.
