In April 1992, a young man named Chris McCandless walked into the Alaskan wilderness, where he survived for more than 100 days before perishing in an abandoned bus. For over 20 years his story has captivated millions, and yet only one person knew the truth behind his remarkable journey - until now.
Through a tumultuous childhood, the McCandless siblings clung to each other amidst a chaotic home life, forming a lifelong bond and an unbreakable trust. So when Chris abandoned nearly all of his possessions, cut off all family ties, and forged an anonymous existence on the road, Carine understood what drew Chris away from all he had known. Having to face her own truth and surmount some crushing obstacles in the absence of her beloved brother, Carine drew strength from his constant presence while forging ahead on her own unique journey.
A powerful and deeply personal story, The Wild Truth is both a revelatory glimpse into the life of Chris McCandless and the inspirational tale of one woman's resilience in the wake of unspeakable tragedy.

What a surprise!
I ordered this book wondering what l "truth" had been missing from Into the Wild. I ordered for curiosity sake and was pleasantly surprised by all I hadn't known after reading Jon Krakauer's book. I never expected to be touched so deeply and personally by this book. For me, it was exactly what I needed to read, exactly at this point in my life. I hope you enjoy it equally but if not I'm sure it will enlighten you. Makes me want to reread Into The Wild. Actually makes me NEED to reread Into The Wild.
Nothing. It was honest.
