Afterwards, he gets in his car and drives away without telling anybody where he is going, abandoning the use of his real name along the way and never contacting his parents or close sister, Carine, again.
Into the Wild, written by critically acclaimed author John Krakauer, is the compelling life story of an idealistic young man named Chris Johnson MacCandless. Chris is an intelligent and athletic man who comes from a loving middle class family who raised him in Annandale, Virginia.
