Adventure and the appeal of the wilderness are what draw Chris McCandless into the Alaskan wild. This book explores his journey, the motivation behind his decision to go into the wild, and how his life ended as a result of being in the wild. I kept rereading this book all throughout high school because, in a way, I admired McCandless for leaving his reality and adventuring out into the world to be free. Still one of my favorite books today, I recommend it to people who are looking for a bit of adventure, and because the book evokes so many thoughts and ranging emotions.
