About the Title

Into the Wild (1996) is a non-fiction book written by American writer Jon Krakauer. It is an expanded form of an article written by the author in Outdoor Magazine on Christopher McCandless. The book adresses the issue of finding peace in oneself with the contradictions of being an active member of the society.

Into the Wild has two interconnected plots; one that describes directly represented action, and another that deals in the careful development of a psychological portrait of Christopher McCandless. The first plot tracks McCandless?s journey into the wild, while the second probes the development of Krakauer?s, and implicitly, the reader?s understanding of McCandless?s character and motivations. The two plots intersect through the presentation of subtle detail, description and the elaboration of multiple possible lines of cause and effect. Krakauer presents the plot in a non-linear fashion and serves as the narrator of the book.
