Carine McCandless - The Wild Truth
Politics and Prose, Sunday, January 4, 2015 at 5pm
Into the wild, Jon Krakauer’s haunting account of Chris McCandless and his struggle to survive alone in remote Alaska, made the troubled young man’s experience vivid—but left his motives blurry. His younger sister, Carine, is one of the few to understand what drove Chris, and her memoir of their childhood and family at last clarifies McCandless’s seemingly bizarre actions. (HarperOne)
