"Some people feel like they don't deserve love. They walk away quietly into empty spaces, trying to close the gaps of the past." — Chris McCandless Worth Reading, Book Worth, Greatest Movie, Eddie Vedder, Favorite Book, Good Book, Favorite Movie, Into The Wild, High Schools
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.
