Description

In April 1992 a young man from a well-to-do family hitchhiked to Alaska and walked alone into the wilderness north of Mt. McKinley. His name was Christopher Johnson McCandless. He had given $25,000 in savings to charity, abandoned his car and most of his possessions, burned all the cash in his wallet, and invented a new life for himself... "Terrifying...Eloquent...A heart-rending drama wandering of human yearning."--The New York Times "A narrative of arresting force. Anyone who ever fancied wandering off to face nature on its own harsh terms should give a look. It's gripping stuff."--The Washington Post

Review quote

A narrative of arresting force. Anyone who ever fancied wandering off to face nature on its own harsh terms should give a look. It's gripping stuff.
--Washington Post Compelling and tragic...Hard to put down.
--San Francisco Chronicle Engrossing...with a telling eye for detail, Krakauer has captured the sad saga of a stubborn, idealistic young man.
--Los Angeles Times Book Review It may be nonfiction, but Into the Wild is a mystery of the highest order.
--Entertainment Weekly
