A tale of a young man entranced by figures of transcendentalism who embarks on a lonesome, nomadic adventure and ends up dead in the Alaskan Bush. Fueled by romanticized goals of unity with nature and scorn for the material world, Chris McCandless reminds us of a primal desire hidden deep within ourselves. Jon Krakauer's narration completes the piece, chalk full of thorough research and insightful analysis. A nonfiction masterpiece!
