Publisher Description

NOW AN AWARD WINNING MAJOR MOTION PICTURE DIRECTED BY SEAN PENN

Jon Krakauer's Into the Wild examines the true story of Chris McCandless, a young man, who in 1992 walked deep into the Alaskan wilderness and whose SOS note and emaciated corpse were found four months later.

Internationally bestselling author and mountaineer Jon Krakauer explores the obsession which leads some people to discover the outer limits of self, leave civilization behind and seek enlightenment through solitude and contact with nature.

In 2007, Into the Wild was adapted as a critically acclaimed film, directed by Sean Penn and Emile Hirsch and Kristen Stewart.

Review

A compelling tale of tragic idealism. The Times An astonishingly gifted writer: his account of 'Alex Supertramp' is powerfully dramatic, eliciting sympathy for both the idealistic, anti-consumerist boy - and his parents. Guardian It may be nonfiction, but Into the Wild is a mystery of the highest order. Entertainment Weekly 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 Terrifying . . . Eloquent . . . A heart-rending drama of human yearning. New York Times
