Into the Wild
Jon Krakauer
Amazing, amazing, amazing, amazing, amazing book. You will not regret reading this book. I suggest you read the book before you see the movie. The book tells it like it is, and the movie adds a little, and subtracts a little of the story. This book is too good for words. You can find it at almost any local book store; it's a really popular read since the movie release.

"Into the Wild is the true story of the mysterious life and death of Christopher Johnson McCandless, a talented young man from a good family who inexplicably turned his back on everything he seemed to have going for him. He graduated from Emory University in 1990, lost no time in giving away to charity the sizeable balance in his bank account, and then abruptly abandoned his past life and the personal identity all knew him by to basically disappear from the lives of family and friends. He anticipated that his parents would want to stop him, so he arranged to have his mail held for at least a month before it was returned to them, thereby giving himself ample time to leave for unknown parts unhindered by parental intervention..." -source

I think I should start reading this book. And I can't believe I've never seen the movie yet!
