In the fall of 2015, a movie starring Jake Gyllenhaal, and based on the book “Into Thin Air” by Jon Krakauer will be released.
I have been a fan of Krakauer’s books since reading “Into the Wild” about Christopher McCandless. I have posted quite a bit about the story, the assumed motivations of Chris’ actions, and the spiritual impact it had on myself. It is one of the reasons I have become obsessed with Alaska and will one day visit “the bus”.
