Detailed Product Description

New York, 1996, 1st edition, 1st printing. 207 pp, photos. Jon's second book, also a best-seller, and hard to find in the true first edition. Hardcover, DJ, as New. The book was made into a feature film, directed by Sean Peann, and Emile Hirsch as McCandless, in 2007. The film was faithful to the book, was well reviewed, won many awards, and did moderately well at the box office.

 
SIGNED by Jon Krakauer. 
 
The story of Chris McCandless, a young man who embarked on a solo journey into the wilds of Alaska and whose body was discovered four months later, explores the fascinating allure that the wilderness has for the American imagination.
 
What would possess a gifted young man recently graduated from college to literally walk away from his life? Noted outdoor writer and mountaineer Jon Krakauer tackles that question in his reporting on Chris McCandless, whose emaciated body was found in an abandoned bus in the Alaskan wilderness in 1992.

Described by friends and relatives as smart, literate, compassionate and funny, did McCandless simply read too much Thoreau and Jack London and lose sight of the dangers of heading into the wilderness alone? Krakauer, whose own adventures have taken him to the perilous heights of Everest, provides some answers by exploring the pull the outdoors, seductive yet often dangerous, has had on his own life. DJ, as New.
