Chris McCandless Reading List

Into The Wild gives a beautiful insight in to the life of Chris McCandless. I remember saying almost the same thing when I wrote a review of Into The Wild by Jon KrakauerI recently read a book recommended by a fellow blogger at the time when I wrote the book, which gives more insight into the life of Chris McCandless, The Wild Truth: The Untold Story of Sibling Survival by Carine McCandless. This book shows another view of Chris’ life. The relationship he had with his parents, his childhood, his relationship with sister and other siblings.

At the end of the book I found an image shared by Carine which consisted of the favourite books of Chris McCandless. So I thought, why not share those books here.

Walden and Civil Disobedience by Henry David Thoreau

Doctor Zhivago by Boris Pasternak
