Into the Wild by Jon Krakauer

Description

Into the Wild is a nonfiction account of Christopher Johnson McCandless and the mysterious circumstances surrounding his death. McCandless was a young man from a well-to-do family who hitchhiked to Alaska and walked alone into the wilderness north of Mt. McKinley in April of 1992. He had given $25,000 in savings to charity, abandoned his car and most of his possessions, burned all the cash in his wallet, and invented a new life for himself. Four months later, his decomposed body was found by a moose hunter. Digging deeply, Krakauer takes an inherently compelling mystery and unravels the larger riddles it holds: the profound pull of the American wilderness on our imagination; the allure of high-risk activities to young men of a certain cast of mind; and the complex, charged bond between fathers and sons.

Topics covered in this novel include father/son dynamics, high-risk behavior, the allure of the wilderness, isolation, forgiveness, and the search for identity.

Genre: Nonfiction

Lexile Measure: 1270L

Attention: Please preview. Many novels contain topics, themes, and language that you, students, parents, or school administrators may deem inappropriate.
