Read in August, 2010

I was very much transported by this book. I didn't see the movie and I didn't know I was about to read an incredible piece of journalism (as opposed to fiction) before I cracked this paperback open. As far as journalism goes, this account is crafted with heart and soul and a mesmerizing dramatic flair. It is a story about spirit, and in tracing Chris McCandless journey, John Krakauer sets himself to ponder the ineffable in the wild, within and without a wanderer on this earth.
