One of the top books of all time, Into The Wild, is the story of a young man named Christopher Johnson McCandless, who hitchhiked to Alaska and walked alone into the wilderness north of Mt. McKinley, in the April of 1992. He gave himself a new name, donated $25,000 to charity, burned all of his cash, tore up his maps and abandoned his car. Four months later, he was found dead. The book is, but a cautionary tale, beautifully written.
