This is an fascinating tale of a lonely traveller through the great wildernesses of America and even Mexico. Chris McCandless was from a wealthy suburban home that rejected the modern style of life to live among the trees in Alaska. He traveled with little in his pocket, but he had a lot in his mind. Well educated, and quietly personable, he made his way in and out of people’s lives. In the end, he made a mistake which lead to the end of his life. This is a wonderful story about getting in touch with nature and a simpler world. Some people would think this man crazy, a nutcase, but I see his desire for adventure. I believe most men enjoy testing themselves against the elements of nature. In this increasingly civilized world, having the ability to live in the wild is an empowering virtue. Shockingly, what is making me feel alive is going into the mountains and spending the night, waking up at 4:30am and packing up my gear and hiking up a hill. No Chris McCandless was not crazy, he was a man.
