Into the Wild



http://www.wikisummaries.org/Into_the_Wild
I still haven't figured out hyperlinks so this is the best I could do for now. You can copy and paste to read about the book I'm talking about.

I read this book when it came out in '97 and it was a great read. I'm not surprised that Sean Penn has directed a movie about this book. Hope to get a chance to see his movie. I've always been intrigued by people who choose to drop out of society and go out into the wilderness. I've always fantacized about dropping out like that. With my survival skills I'd probably be a nice snack for a bear. So to not spoil a bear's appetite I stick to reading about these mysterious adventurers.

Ooooh oooh! And Eddie Vedder does the soundtrack. Another Fav! His first full solo album.

  2. Lucky you!
    I'll probably have to wait until it comes out on Netflix.

    Yeah, but I can't imagine how wonderful it must have felt to be overwhelmed by the beauty of it all.
