Christopher Mccandless's story is well known and widely mocked. After reading this account of his unfortunate journey I find him a much more empathetic person and sincerely relate to him in many ways. Who can't relate to the desire to be alone for a while?
Never have I ever walked into the wilderness to see if I could survive alone.

Highly recommended for anyone who has felt lost in life or is looking for a different way of living. Also great for any adventure fans or avid hikers.

“Long captivated by the writing of Leo Tolstoy, McCandless particularly admired how the great novelist had forsaken a life of wealth and privilege to wander among the destitute.”
If this adventure proves fatal and you don’t ever hear from me again I want you to know you’re a great man. I now walk into the wild. Alex.
