About the Book

Into the Wild

In April 1992, a young man named Christopher Johnson McCandless hitchhiked to Alaska and walked alone into the wilderness. He had given away his savings, abandoned most of his possessions, and invented a new life for himself. Four months later, a moose hunter found McCandless's body. This is the story of how he came to die.
