Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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. An outstanding piece of work, which was well reviewed in hardcover, and which should do well in this format.

Synopsis:

Using the true story of a young man, who in 1992 walked deep into the Alaskan wilderness and whose SOS note and emaciated corpse were found four months later, Krakauer explores the obsession which leads some people to explore the outer limits of self, leave civilization behind and seek enlightenment through solitude and contact with nature.
