Summary
"Alaska, 6 September 1992. After 112 days with little food and no company, Chris McCandless's young heart finally gave up. Jon Krakauer's extraordinary book followed him there; now learn what drove Chris to it from the person who knew him best - his sister Carine. ... Carine journeys back to the childhood she and Chris shared in the leafy suburbs of northern Virginia, raised by parents who - to the outside world - seemed so loving and content. But behind closed doors, the violence, manipulation and dark secrets of the McCandless family would one day drive their son into the wild where, aged just 24, he would die alone."--Back cover
