Bus in Forest – level 2
Christopher McCandless was an American adventurer who traveled across North America in 1990s.
In 1992, McCandless travelled to Alaska where he wanted to hunt and farm to get food. He found an abandoned bus in the forest, that he used as a shelter.
However, the weather in Alaska was very bad, and it was not easy to live there. In September 1992, a hunter found McCandless´s dead body. The body was very light, and it seemed that McCandless did not have enough food.
There was a book and a film about McCandless which attracted many adventurers, and they stayed in the bus, too. In February 2020, rescuers saved five Italians, who got in trouble because of bad weather. Authorities took the bus away by a helicopter, because it was too risky for people to use it.
Difficult words: abandoned (something that nobody uses), shelter (a safe place), attract (to be interesting for someone).
