Reviews

Jon Krakauer tells the riveting story of Chris McCandless, who, after graduating from college in 1992, gave his life savings to charity and started hitchhiking to Alaska. Once there, he ventured into the wild. Four months after leaving home, he was found dead. The reasons for his quest, what happened in the woods, and how he died have become iconic and troubling questions. Copyright 2008 Reed Business Information.

"Terrifying...Eloquent...A heart-rending drama of human yearning."
--New York Times

"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 "Compelling and tragic...Hard to put down."
--San Francisco Chronicle "Engrossing...with a telling eye for detail, Krakauer has captured the sad saga of a stubborn, idealistic young man."
--Los Angeles Times Book Review "It may be nonfiction, but Into the Wild is a mystery of the highest order."
--Entertainment Weekly
