1. Into the Wild

The first book of 2005 completed. I thought it was good. I liked that Krakauer let me make many of my own conclusions about why McCandless died, and about the theories that were floating around Alaska.

I had been meaning to read this book for a long time and it's finally an itch scratched. It also led me to another book called, "The Final Frontiersman" about this dude Heimo Korth who lives above the Arctic Circle year round. He's also in Alaska, but many of his trap lines are close enough to Canada that he crosses the border to take a leak on the Canadian side. I'll let you know how it turns out.

Started 7 Jan - finished 8 Jan.
