So I‘m an idiot. I knew there was a movie on his but I didn‘t realize this was a true story! Wow. I never watched the movie but since I enjoyed “Into Thin Air” by Jon Krakauer I thought I would try this one even though I didn‘t think I would enjoy it as much. I was completely wrong!

After reading the book it sent me down the rabbit hole of researching this more. I was completely invested! 1000% would read again!

1. Hotel to be honest. Never been in a yurt though friends who have done the Silk Road loved it so pretty sure I would too. Family tradition is a water ski trip in January where we sleep in a cabin. Have been doing that since I was 12 also in January is a tent at Rainbow beach where the stingers are bad. No showers and drop toilets! Did a lot of under the stars as a teenager. 2. LapReader as that‘s how I read when camping. 3. Tagged. 4. 3 books.

ImperfectCJ I almost chose that same book...such a good one! Glad to have you at camp! 6mo

This was my 3rd Krakauer book, and it did not disappoint! I love Krakauer‘s style of in-depth research, journalism and story telling. This book chronically the well know story of Chris McCabdleness‘ demise in the alaska wilderness. I enjoyed the way krakauer told the story. It keep you interested in a way most non-fiction pieces can‘t. Highly recommend.

I found this at our on post thrift store for pennies! I can‘t believe I hadn‘t read it sooner. What a great dive into the life of Chris McCandless, Krakouer does him great justice. I visited Alaska a couple of years ago and fell in love with its beauty, I‘ve begged my husband to get us stationed there. While I‘m an adventurer at heart, I‘m not as brave as Alex Supertramp. (And I would‘ve called my mom a hundred times)Book 10 of 2021

Posting about this since Into the Wild is such a popular book on Litsy. One of my regular podcasts did a deep dive in honor of the 25th anniversary of the publication, including insight on the publishing world at the time and an in-depth interview with Krakauer. Growing up in AK, I‘ve been aware McCandless‘s story my whole life, so it was interesting to learn more about the research and writing of the book.

An inspirational book for anyone with a drifters spirit. A look into the life of a young man who‘s desire to find himself was greater than his need to conform. All though some see this as a tragic story about the end to a young mans life, I see it his as a beautiful story of discovery that ends too soon. (I don‘t think this is a spoiler as the books starts with this information and it‘s literally on the cover, I apologize if I‘m wrong)

Buechersuechtling Oooooooh, I was inclined to read it, after I saw the film. Now that you brought it up again, I feel like I want to read it now‼️ 12mo
JakeRuble @Buechersuechtling the film did a great job capturing the spirit of the book, but of course it‘s difficult to get all the emotion into film. It‘s a great and quick read. I highly recommend it. 12mo

I am torn on how to rate this book. I keep going back and forth. While I don‘t know how I feel about him as a person, think the story of McCandless is incredibly interesting and he certainly did what made him happy. Krakauer‘s telling of McCandless‘s story seemed to be highly researched and keep me interested.

When I was visiting my sister in Fairbanks they were in the process of moving the bus to the museum and we were able to catch a glimpse of it from the side of the road. I enjoyed the book and the romanticism of his ideals of nature but am glad the bus has been moved to help reduce the number of deaths and rescues of people trying to recreate his experience.

#12ColorsofDecember Day 2: Snow White ❄️🏔

It‘s hard to see on the cover, but the famous decommissioned bus that Christopher McCandless spent his summer in Alaska and his last days of life the following winter is featured, covered in a blanket of snow. Photo taken about 230 miles from the bus‘s original location.

#WinterGames #TeamRedNosedReindeer @StayCurious

MadDashReading I teach this text and Chris's story to my juniors. They always feel so strong about him, one way or the other. Did they ever settle on where the bus would be moved to? 13mo
Kimberlone @MadDashReading I‘m not sure it‘s current location (I believe it was temporarily relocated to be refurbished), but it‘s final home is meant to be the Museum of the North at University of Alaska Fairbanks. As an Alaskan, I have mixed feelings about Chris‘s story, and to be honest not a huge fan of Krakauer‘s book (I think Into Thin Air is a much superior book). While the film is much more romanticized, it‘s beautifully done. 13mo
Crazeedi @Kimberlone I agree that Into Thin Air was much better book 13mo

MadDashReading The text definitely has its flaws. We always watch the documentary Return to the Wild and discuss Krakauer's authorial license with the story. I haven't read Carine McCandless's book yet, but my students always find her to be very credible. Yes, my students fall in love with the beauty of his transcendental ideas (the film is great for that!), but repel against the illogical choices he seems to make. It is always an impassioned conversation. 13mo
Kimberlone @MadDashReading I agree it is a fabulous book for discussing the complicated story of who Chris was, along with the conflicting viewpoints in the story telling. 13mo

Truth! This sentiment profoundly affects me and through it I can appreciate McCandless‘ deep frustration with society and wealth. Although I still find him to be spoilt and inflexible, I understand why such insincerity and superficiality drove him into the wild.

Man, so much to say. To thine own self be true right? He was honorable in his ideals, but cocky and Ill-prepared which amounted to disrespect of the land he held so high.
Alaska turned out to be his demise by means of poisoned seeds, ultimately leading to his starvation (awful). I, like the author find comfort to imagine him in a euphoric state during his last days.
We all choose our paths. He died doing what he loved. To thine own self be true.

McCandless‘ story is fascinating and tragic but also frustrating. I think if he had just prepared a little more that he could have had his experience and survived. Krakauer does an excellent job of drawing the reader into McCandless‘ journey. This was good, but Into Thin Air was better.

The bus is now on its way to its final location. I think this is ultimately a good thing. While, sure, some people will still be motivated to trek out to the spot where McCandless died, the biggest draw was definitely the iconic bus itself. If moving it to the museum results in less Darwin Award-worthy deaths, then I‘m all for it. Would also be cool to see next time I make it up to Fairbanks.

The book I associate with this card is Into the Wild by Jon Krakauer, so much love for this book and movie; it's so quotable. 🧡

ErinSueMreads Oh man this book is totally perfect. There are so many parts that fit exactly. Have you read any bill bryson? 1y
LitStephanie I did not read the book because the movie was so hard to watch. It really poignantly highlights how helpless loved ones are as they watch people succumb to mental illness that is serious enough to impact their decision making in dangerous ways but mild enough that the person, and many around them, just think they have harmless eccentricities. So sad. ☹️ 1y

TheNeverendingTBR @LitStephanie I completely understand Chris and his need for something more from life than the usual things that we're conditioned to through society i.e the working week, money and higher education etc. There's nothing wrong with wanting more from life than this. I think he was just a non-conformist and introverted individual seeking more from life and he just wasn't prepared and knowledgeable about survival for his journey of self-discovery. 1y

I‘d had this unread on my bookshelf for a while, and when removal of “the bus” hit the news recently, it prompted me to move it to the top of my reading queue.
It‘s a sad and tragic story certainly, but it didn‘t grip me quite like Kraukauer‘s Into Thin Air did. I thought there was a lot of unnecessary filler in this book. Still, though, worth the read. I‘m off to watch the movie now.

In my opinion, this is a good thing. As iconic as the bus has become, it has also become a dangerous tourist trap, and the State of Alaska has had to foot the bill of numerous rescues for people who were too dumb to heed the warning implied by McCandless‘s story because they wanted a cool photo op.

Deifio I agree! Let's hope people take the hint and don't start visiting the site without the bus 🤪 2y
Kimberlone @deifio According to the article, Krakauer and Chris‘s family are skeptical that relocating the bus will have much of an impact. But being from here, I do think that the major reason people have for trekking out there is to take photos in front of the bus. (edited) 2y

Kimberlone This is good. I am from Alaska and, as iconic as the bus has become, it is a serious safety risk and costs the state every year due to adventurers inspired to hike out there who end up getting stranded and need to be rescued. Several have even lost their lives. Sadly they didn‘t take the lesson of the book and McCandless‘s story seriously. 2y
Leslie_in_AK As an Alaskan, I completely support the move to keep tourists from doing stupid things. But my excitement was short lived when a fish & game officer told me that they expect the rescues to drop down to about 2/3rds. They still expect people to try to find the real location and still need rescuing. 2y
