In Jon Krakauer 's book Into the Wild, the main protagonist is Chris McCandless, a teenage wanderer who died infamously near Denali National Park. His story motivated Krakauer to write the book, which has now been translated into 14 languages and is used internationally in high school and college courses. Into the Wild was adapted into film in 2007, and was given an incredible soundtrack to go along with the movie.
