By Jon Krakauer
Jon Krakauer’s true story, Into the Wild, describes the life of Chris McCandless, whose personal quest for revelation took him on a wilderness expedition in Alaska that turned into a confrontation with nature and a fight to survive. Ultimately, McCandless lost this fight, but in his attempt, his striving, there is a message about what it means to be human, both frail and courageous at the same time.
