Into the Wild--Jon Krakauer

Genre: Biography
Year Published: 1996
Pages: 203
Rating: 5/5

A fascinating biography of a young man who died for his ideals--or some would say, as a result of his ignorance--while attempting to live off the land in Alaska. Krakauer's writing is captivating, and I became enamoured of the protagonist, Chris, without overlooking his trespasses.

Challenge/s: None
Book-a-week #: 28
