INTO THE WILD by: Jon Krakauer
This book was written in 1996 but I just picked it up. What a good book. This is a story with a tragic ending yet the book is still inspiring. Young Chris McCandless was a man who marched to the beat of a different drummer but seemed to be living his dream. He eschewed a traditional life. He wanted to live by his own rules and live a totally self sufficient life. This is a haunting tale of travel, adventure, and a young life ended to soon.
