Chapter 8, Jon Summary

Jon Snow is captured and brought to the wilding camp by Rattleshirt. He is taken to Mance Rayder, king of the wildings. Mance tells Jon he has seen him twice, once when Mance was a member of the Night's Watch, and again when Mance snuck into the welcoming feast for King Robert Baratheon (now deceased). Mance also tells Jon he joined the wildings because after being wounded, a wilding woman healed him and patched his Night's Watch cloak with red thread. When he returned to the Night's Watch, they would not let him keep the cloak, and Mance decided he wanted to live free to make his own choices. Jon tells Mance he wants to join the wildings, because his father, King Robert, did not value him highly because he is a bastard. Mance accepts him in the wildings.
