I have fond memories of the research and writing, plus I identified with McCandless.
With Into the Wild, I pawned off that decision on the McCandless family.

Failing, he borrowed, or pretended to borrow the amount from McCandless.
The steward had laid out the silver, and Davis and McCandless were already there.
Such were the members of the McCandless gang, which Hickock disposed of so thoroughly.
His own boy had been about McCandless' age, he thought suddenly.
Mr. McCandless, for defense, addressed the Court and jury; Court took a recess for half an hour.
McCandless came out on the bridge, his eyes red-rimmed from lack of sleep.
