    Help! Is this correct?

    Isolation
    The wildernessis defined as an uncultivated, uninhabited, and inhospitable region. Yet, as Roderick Nash explains in Wilderness and the American Mindand as Jon Krakauer exemplifies in Intothe Wild, people are always being drawn towards the wild. The similarities between adventurers, includingChristopher McCandless, Everett Ruess, Jon Krakauer, and many more, areastounding. Those venturing into uninhabitedregions are detaching themselves from the faults of man and society in order tolive their alternative lives alone and in peace; instead, they are consumed by feelingsof melancholy and depression.

    Welcome to the forum, akubicki.

    What do you think might be wrong with it - apart from the missing spaces that I have marked with a #?

    Re: Help! Is this correct?

    Thanks and I am wondering if the object of my essay is clear seeing as this is the introductory paragraph. Also, I was wondering if the sentences flow well grammatically and if the tenses agree.
