wild

Into the Wild by Jon Krakauer is the famed true story of teenager Chris McCandless, who after growing up in a posh section of Washington, DC, left his life for one of an adventurer into the wilds of Alaska. McCandless gave his quite large savings to several charities, burned the money in his wallet, and set out to completely change his life. He was enamored by the likes of Leo Tolstoy, who gave up his own wealthy life to live among the destitute. This book, based on a magazine article in Outside Magazine, will draw you in to this strange tale of an extremely intense young man who held his own for four months in the Alaskan wilderness.
