Into the Wild is by Jon Krakauer. In April 1992, Chris McCandless took out alone into the Alaskan wilderness. Four months later his body was found by a party of moose hunters. He had died of starvation. What caused this young man from an upper middle class East Coast family to donate his savings to charity, sell his possessions, abandon his car, burn the last of his cash and invent a new life for himself? A fascinating true story of young man's search for himself and the devastating consequences.
