Into The Wild [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Into the Wild by Jon Krakauer Book Summary:

In April 1992 a young man from a well-to-do family hitchhiked to Alaska and walked alone into the wilderness north of Mt. McKinley. His name was Christopher Johnson McCandless. He had given $25,000 in savings to charity, abandoned his car and most of his possessions, burned all the cash in his wallet, and invented a new life for himself. Four months later, his decomposed body was found by a moose hunter.  How McCandless came to die is the unforgettable story of Into the Wild.Immediately after graduating from college in 1991, McCandless had roamed through the West and Southwest on a vision quest like those made by his heroes Jack London and John Muir.  In the Mojave Desert he abandoned his car, stripped it of its license plates, and burned all of his  cash.  He would give himself a new name, Alexander Supertramp, and , unencumbered by money and belongings, he would be free to wallow in the raw, unfiltered experiences that nature presented.  Craving a blank spot on the map, McCandless simply threw the maps away.  Leaving behind his desperate parents and sister, he vanished into the wild.Jon Krakauer constructs a clarifying prism through which he reassembles the disquieting facts of McCandless's short life.  Admitting an interst that borders on obsession, he searches for the clues to the dries and desires that propelled McCandless.  Digging deeply, he takes an inherently compelling mystery and unravels the larger riddles it holds: the profound pull of the American wilderness on our imagination; the allure of high-risk activities to young men of a certain cast of mind; the complex, charged bond between fathers and sons.When McCandless's innocent mistakes turn out to be irreversible and fatal, he becomes the stuff of tabloid headlines and is dismissed for his naiveté, pretensions, and hubris.  He is said  to have had a death wish but wanting to die is a very different thing from being compelled to look over the edge. Krakauer brings McCandless's uncompromising pilgrimage out of the shadows, and the peril, adversity , and renunciation sought by this enigmatic young man are illuminated with a rare understanding--and not an ounce of sentimentality. Mesmerizing, heartbreaking, Into the Wild is a tour de force. The power and luminosity of Jon Krakauer's stoytelling blaze through every page.

Into the Wild by Jon KRAKAUER Book Summary:

En 1992, le cadavre d'un jeune homme est découvert dans un bus abandonné en Alaska, au pied du mont McKinley, loin de tout lieu habité. Fils de bonne famille, Chris McCandless aurait dû en toute logique devenir un Américain bien tranquille à l'avenir sans surprise. Mais, dès l'obtention de son diplôme universitaire, il décide de partir à l'aventure. Après avoir fait don de ses économies à une oeuvre humanitaire, il entame son périple sous un nom d'emprunt avec sa vieille voiture, qu'il abandonnera un peu plus tard. Il sillonne le sud des Etats-Unis, subsistant grâce à de menus travaux, avant de réaliser son grand projet: s'installer au coeur de l'Alaska, seul, en communion avec la nature. Mais on ne s'improvise pas trappeur, ni homme des bois... Ce parcours dramatique d'un jeune homme qui a voulu vivre jusqu'au bout son impossible idéal est retracé par Jon Krakauer, l'auteur du best-seller Tragédie à l'Everest. Livre-culte dans le monde entier, Into the Wild a d'emblée fasciné Sean Penn, qui en a réalisé une adaptation cinématographique applaudie par la critique américaine.

Into the Wild by Larry Correia Book Summary:

The Malcontents are back in action! Into the Wild, the new novel from acclaimed author Larry Correia, picks up the story begun in Correia's first entry in the series, Into the Storm. Now under the leadership of the reluctant Lieutenant Kelvan Cleasby, the Sixth Platoon of Storm Knights has been ordered to accompany an archeological expedition from the Royal Cygnaran University deep into the Wyrmwall Mountains. There, the scholarly team from the university will investigate an ancient site of potentially great historical value while the Malcontents stand around playing bodyguards and wishing for just a little excitement. But what seems a simple enough assignment rapidly turns into a test of the platoon's survival skills-a seemingly abandoned fort, the lone survivor of a horrifying attack, and a ferociously territorial tribe may be more than even the Malcontents can handle. And even once they know the monsters they face, escape may well be impossible-it's never as easy to get out as it is to get into the wild.

Voices in the Ocean: A Journey into the Wild and Haunting World of Dolphins by Susan Casey Book Summary:

A New York Times BestsellerInspired by a profound experience swimming with wild dolphins off the coast of Maui, Susan Casey set out on a quest to learn everything she could about these creatures.

Everest. It was his trip to Mt. Everest that would go on to give Krakauer a National Magazine Award for his article in Outside Magazine and “Book of the Year” for Into Thin Air. In both, Krakauer tells of the descent from Mt. Everest’s peak in which a storm killed off four of the five teammates.Along with Into the Wild, and Into Thin Air, Krakauer has also written Eiger Dreams, Under the Banner of Heaven, and Where Men Win Glory. His work has published into GEO, Architectural Digest, Rolling Stone, TIME, The Washington Post, The New York Times, and National Geographic. In 1998, Krakauer created the Everest ‘96 Memorial Fund as a tribute to his companions lost on Everest which provides humanitarian relief to the indigenous peoples of the Himalaya and supports organizations working to preserve the natural environment throughout the world.http://www.amazon.com/Quicklet-Krakauer-CliffNotes-like-Summary-ebook/dp/B006MB8XT6= = = = =Into Thin AirInto Thin Air (1997) began as a 1996 article for Outside Magazine. Krakauer wanted to develop the story more fully, however, and thus was the book was born. Hed originally been assigned to examine the commercialization of Mt. Everest for the Outside article. That ended up being the focus of the story after all, but with a much more tragic outcome than he or his editors could have imagined. For the article and subsequent book, Krakauer joined an expedition led by Rob Halls Adventure Consultants. During that season, a number of other expeditions were also on the mountain along with Krakauer and Hall, including Scott Fischers Mountain Madness. Both Hall and Fischer were killed in the May 1996 disaster, along with six other climbers.http://www.amazon.com/Quicklet-Krakauers-CliffsNotes-like-Summary-ebook/dp/B007CKX9MW= = = = =Three Cups of DeceitKrakauer divides his text into three different sections, eschewing chapters for a more organic flow. At less than 80 pages long, the bulk of the book does not require frequent headings to stay readable. The first section section, titled The Creation Myth, examines the account Greg Mortenson gives in Three Cups of Tea when he first came across Haji Ali and the village of Korphe, where he was inspired to build the first school. Krakauer frequently moves back and forth between his own exposition and quotes from Tea and other pieces written by or about Mortenson to highlight the differences in fact.http://www.amazon.com/Quicklet-Krakauers-CliffsNotes-like-Summary-ebook/dp/B007GRI31I= = = = =Eiger DreamsKrakauers strength as a writer lies in his ability to personalize the many characters who populate the sport of climbing. He gives us folks we can relate to on a human scale even if we dont quite understand their odd fixation with danger. Thanks to his skillful portraiture, it doesnt take long to start wondering: whatever happened to those outrageous Burgess twins? Has Richard Fisher come out of hiding from the gullies of Arizona? Did Adrian the Romanian finally make it to the top of Mt. McKinley, and more importantly, did he make it back down in one piece? http://www.amazon.com/Quicklet-Krakauers-Eiger-Dreams-ebook/dp/B007HDC1JQ= = = = =Quicklets: Your Reading Sidekick!
