Description

What would possess a gifted young man recently graduated from college to literally walk away from his life?

The disturbing but brilliantly written story of twenty-two year-old Chris McCandless, who, in a quest for intense experience, rid himself of all his money and possessions, and walked into the heart of the Alaskan wilderness with only the minimum of equipment. His emaciated body was found in an abandoned bus four months later. Using the example of McCandless, Krakauer explores our obsession with the outer limits of the self, and the quest for enlightenment through solitude and contact with nature.

A compelling tale of tragic idealism.
