The House Says:
Krakauer comes under a lot of fire for his books but they’re a damn fine read. Into Thin Air and Into the Wild are two of his finest works and both books are stunningly compelling and definitely belong on every adventurers bookshelf.
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 Jon 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. A 2007 film adaptation of Into the Wild was directed by Sean Penn and starred Emile Hirsch and Kristen Stewart.
