Summary
On September 6, 1992, Christopher McCandless' body was found inside an abandoned bus in Alaska.
One year later, author Jon Krakauer retraced McCandless's steps during the two years between college graduation and his death in Alaska.
McCandless shed his legal name early in his journey,adopting the pseudonym 'Alexander Supertramp', after W.H. Davies. He spent time in Cartaghe,South Dakota
Krakauer finds similarities between events in McCandless's life and those of his own- The Devil Thumb
He also related the story of some other young men who dissappeared into the wilderness such as Everett Ruess who vanished in the Utah dessert
In addition, he describes at some length the grief and puzzlement of McCandless's parents, sister and friends.
