"I read somewhere… how important it is in life not necessarily to be strong, but to feel strong… to measure yourself at least once." – Jon Krakauer

The protagonist wanted a start-over, a fresh start where even his name would be different. And in order to fulfill that desire and to live in an unfiltered way the experiences that nature presented, he got rid of every bit of technology or cash he had in hand and decided to roam the world. Sadly, four months after his journey began, his decomposed body was founded by a party of moose hunters. However, the ending is not what makes it unforgettable but the events that led up to it and in Into the Wild you'll read about the entire story.

Witness the story of McCandless and his unique journey where nature was his only friend.

P.S. Into the Wild is a fascinating story that tells us all about McCandless vision quest.
