Into the Wild

Currently I am reading several novels at the same time. One of these is "Into the Wild" by Jon Krakauer. It's about a young man, called McCandless (see picture), who hitchhiked around in the US, from California to Alaska. The novel is based on a true story, and McCandless's corpse was found in Alaska, in the middle of nowhere.

The author attempts to explore why he left home and how he managed to survive for so long, without any equipment or experience, apart from fictional novels on surviving the wild. The novel is very popular, and has even been made into a film, with the same title as the novel. The trailer for the film is below.
