LA VERITÀ MAI RACCONTATA SU CHRIS MCCANDLESS NEL LIBRO-RIVELAZIONE DELLA SORELLA DEL DISCUSSO PROTAGONISTA DI «INTO THE WILD». Nel 1993 Jon Krakauer pubblicò un articolo sulla rivista «Outside», intitolato «Death of an Innocent» (Morte di un innocente). Le parole di Krakauer sul giovane Chris McCandless che aveva trovato la morte in Alaska, dopo aver abbandonato la famiglia e aver vissuto per mesi senza soldi, viaggiando da solo nella wilderness, sollevarono un polverone. Chi considerò Chris un sognatore, chi un pazzo, chi un illuso, chi un idealista, chi un ribelle. Krakauer decise allora di trasformare l’articolo in un libro, «Nelle terre estreme», che ebbe un successo straordinario e che ispirò Sean Penn nel film «Into the Wild». Chris McCandless è suo malgrado diventato un mito: rappresenta la giovinezza che non ha paura di perdere tutto pur di seguire i suoi sogni. Ma Chris è anche un ragazzo in carne e ossa, con una famiglia che ha abbandonato. E le ragioni della sua scelta sono quelle che Krakauer aveva cercato di comprendere con l’aiuto della sorella di Chris, Carine. Ma Carine aveva chiesto a Krakauer di rispettare il silenzio su alcuni aspetti della vita del fratello che coinvolgevano i genitori e lei

No one writes about mountaineering and its attendant victories and hardships more brilliantly than Jon Krakauer. In this collection of his finest essays and reporting, Krakauer writes of mountains from the memorable perspective of one who has himself struggled with solo madness to scale Alaska's notorious Devils Thumb. In Pakistan, the fearsome K2 kills thirteen of the world's most experienced mountain climbers in one horrific summer. In Valdez, Alaska, two men scale a frozen waterfall over a four-hundred-foot drop. In France, a hip international crowd of rock climbers, bungee jumpers, and paragliders figure out new ways to risk their lives on the towering peaks of Mont Blanc. Why do they do it? How do they do it? In this extraordinary book, Krakauer presents an unusual fraternity of daredevils, athletes, and misfits stretching the limits of the possible. From the paranoid confines of a snowbound tent, to the thunderous, suffocating terror of a white-out on Mount McKinley, Eiger Dreams spins tales of driven lives, sudden deaths, and incredible victories. This is a stirring, vivid book about one of the most compelling and dangerous of all human pursuits.
