MEDIA REVIEWS
Terrifying . . . Eloquent . . . A heart-rending drama of human yearning. * New York Times *
A narrative of arresting force. Anyone who ever fancied wandering off to face nature on its own harsh terms should give a look. It's gripping stuff. * Washington Post *
It may be nonfiction, but Into the Wild is a mystery of the highest order. * Entertainment Weekly *
An astonishingly gifted writer: his account of 'Alex Supertramp' is powerfully dramatic, eliciting sympathy for both the idealistic, anti-consumerist boy - and his parents. * Guardian *
A compelling tale of tragic idealism. * The Times *
