Depressing, yet inspiring. Jon Krakauer explores the final days of Chris McCandless AKA Alexander Supertramp and also delves into the psyche of those who seek to separate themselves from society and immerse themselves in the wild.

As a sidenote, Sean Penn's film serves as a beautiful visual companion to the book.
