Into the Wild

Into the Wild

$7.99$1.99

From the publisher: "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."

Missoula

Missoula

Author:

From the publisher: "From best-selling author Jon Krakauer, a stark, powerful, meticulously reported narrative. Missoula, Montana, is a typical college town, with a highly regarded state university, bucolic surroundings, a lively social scene, and an excellent football team - the Grizzlies - with a rabid fan base. The Department of Justice investigated 350 sexual assaults reported to the Missoula police between January 2008 and May 2012. In this Missoula is also typical. Krakauer's devastating narrative of what happened in Missoula makes clear why rape is so prevalent on American campuses and why victims are so reluctant to report assault."
