Description
Chris McCandless was a young man from a wealthy family that loved him. He had just graduated with excellent grades from Emory College with a double major in Anthropology and History.And yet he left everything behind, trekking into the wilderness to experience a closeness to nature, in search of something deeper, and elusive.From early years, Chris McCandless had been influenced by the writings of Jack London, Leo Tolstoy, and Henry David Thoreau. He had a yearning to explore and live simply.In 1992, he gave away his college fund, changed his name to Alexander Supertramp, abandoned his car in the middle of the Mojave Desert, with its license plate stripped, and set off into the wild. With no money and no possessions, he started life anew, to experience life at the simplest level.His family started a frantic search for him, but he had erased all his tracks.

     Do you really need a Spiritual Class, When you do have a Book like this! 17 May, 2013 On Junglee.com
    Genre: Adventure, Biography, Drama

    For: Intellectual or Philosophical type of people.

    Brief: There is a pleasure in the pathless woods;
    There is a rapture on the lonely shore;
    There is society, where none intrudes,
    By the deep sea, and music in its roar:
    I love not man the less, but Nature more…
    - Lord Byron
    The book starts with this quote, and ends with death of the main character. The character is craving for adventure in the whole movie (or in true essence, is in search of happiness). At last, before dying of starvation, he found the true essence of happiness and quotes it in a ‘plant-variety book’ – “Happiness is real, only when shared.”

    Comment (in short): A pure adventure with an essence of finding the true meaning of Life or Happiness. People with a frustrated life might find this book as helpful as any other spiritual organization. On the other hand, some super frustrated kind might leave their office and home might leave for Alaska right away (if they can afford to). And yes, this is a true story, bearing a strong home-work while writing this biography.
