Into The Wild

I'm using the book "Into The Wild" by Jon Krakauer in my Comp I class (like many others I'm coming to find). I read this book about Chris McCandless a.k.a Alexander Supertramp as I was nearing graduating from college. I think it was a big reason for me leaving grad school after one semester, along with other things. Many people believe he was stupid and died because of hubris. That is true, or at least partially so, but he also lived out his convinctions; how many of us can say that? This is the one picture of McCandless that is available to the public. He died in that bus.
