Into the Wild

Into the Wild, Copyright 1996 , by Jon Krakauer

This book and Krakauer’s others – Into Thin Air and Under the Banner of Heaven, captured my imagination like few others. I love the results of his careful research, his painstaking attention to detail, his compelling story telling and the themes of his books, especially the “Into’s.”  I aspire to be him.

Into the Wild takes place in the US, and follows a young college graduate from Fairfax County who leaves home to live off the land and to see the country. He’s an idealistic, eccentric kid who is full of adventure and wants to see what he is made of.
