For some reason, the police catch this man and take him away.'' Chris's'' journey up to here was also over. ''Chris'' had gone ahead from here too. He decides that he will cross a river ahead, for which he needs permission. When he goes to ask for permission, the officer says that you write your name and when your name comes, you will be told. When he looks at his name in the list, his name was 12 years later.'' Chris'' looks and says, what does it mean? I have to wait 12 years to cross a river? The officer says, yes, ''Chris'' leaves from there. He decides that he will cross the river without permission and had crossed the river, he meets a couple there. They tell him that you can cross this river and go to Mexico but now the police were also behind him but he reaches Mexico, to reach here,
he had faced a lot of trouble. He even stayed in a cave and now he reached the city but feels suffocation here so he starts his further journey. He was now traveling more on trains but he did not even have money so now he takes the help of a truck. One day the railway police catch him and beat him a lot.'' Chris'' now started his journey again by asking for help from people. He meets the same old couple whom he met first on his journey. Here, ''Chris'' meets a girl whose name was ''Chrissy'' and she started liking Chris but ''Chris'' did not like her because he wanted to go on his journey ahead and wanted to go to Alaska. After some time, he leaves for his journey. He reaches a city and sets up his camp. After staying in that camp for a few days, he meets an old man who was a retired officer but also used to do leather work. When that old man hears ''Chris's'' story, he likes his story a lot. He started spending most of his time with ''Chris''.
That old man says that in a car accident, my whole family died and I am all alone.'' Chris'' now learns leather work with him. He makes a belt for himself in which he makes everything for his journey. After staying here for two months, ''Chris'' decides that he will now go to Alaska because he was not far from there but that old man did not want ''Chris'' to go from here. He says you stay with me, stay as my son.'' Chris'' says that I respect your words very much, but I have to go to Alaska. When I come back, then we will talk about it. He had now left there too. A man gives him a lift and drops him to the border of Alaska and at the same time, he also gives him shoes. He says that this will not make your feet wet. Finally, ''Chris'' had reached Alaska. When he comes far, he hangs his cap on a branch of a tree. He was doing this because he had to cross a river ahead so that when he came back, he could find out the way that he had crossed the river from here.
He now crosses the river and sets up his camp there. There was only snow in Alaska and far away, there was no sign of any human being. He also hunted small to stay here and also had a gun which he had kept to hunt. Then he sees a bus in which there was a bed to sleep and things to light a fire. He had now found a place to stay.'' Chris'' had started living there after cleaning that bus well. He hunted and fed himself and now ''Chris'' was living the life he wanted to live.'' Chris'' had a good habit that he was very fond of reading and writing wherever he visited till today, he used to write the quality of that place in his book. So that he could always remember those moments in his life. In the beginning, he spent a few days in Alaska well but now slowly he was running out of food and drink. That's why he had reduced his food and drink because of which he was losing weight as well. The belt he was wearing, which he had made himself,
he used to make a hole in it again and again to wear it. His food was running out that's why now he thinks that he will hunt a big animal and run it for many days but as he had thought, nothing like that happens. The meat of the animal he hunts gets rotten and there were insects in it. He had understood one thing here that no one can go beyond nature.'' Chris'' was tired of such a life now. He had realized that real happiness is that which is shared with loved ones. Now when he decides to go back, he sees that the river he had crossed was now huge and deep. He could not cross it now. When he tries to cross that river, he falls and was about to die but he was saved. After that, he comes back in his car and starts spending his day again.'' Chris'' did not have any food and drink. He now starts eating wild plants and he also had a book about it because you cannot eat every plant in the forest.
One day he eats a poisonous plant and the poison had spread all over his body.He did not have the courage to find food for himself and it had been 100 days since he had been in Alaska.He did what he wanted to do in his life but now he had become very weak but still, he wrote his thoughts.He writes in his last days ''Happiness is only real when shared'' means happiness is what you share with others.When he realizes that this is the last time of his life, he lies down in his sleeping bag.He remembers his parents and writes one last note in the world. In which it was written,''I had have a happy life and thank the Lord goodbye and may God bless all means I lived a happy life and for this, thank God and goodbye to everyone.After it, he dies. From this whole story of ''Chris'', we get the lesson that you must live your life as per your will but there is no life without your loved ones, especially without parents.
Everyone makes some or the other mistake in their life but because of our mistakes, we cannot leave anyone forever. After all, the mistake's name is a mistake. So always take care of your loved ones for this reason and never think of leaving them. In ''Chris's'' story, the last note shown was only a part of this story but in reality, he had written about his life.''I need help, I am very weak and very close to my death, I am completely alone, this is not a joke please save me, I have opened every way of my life and now, in this evening, I am here thank you, ''Chris McCandle''Here, ''Chris's'' story ends.
