This true-life drama tells the story of a bright young man who turns away from society in an attempt to find freedom and meaning in friendships, travel and nature. Sadly, he fails to find what he is seeking, and travels farther and farther into the wilderness, until he finds the answers he is looking for in the depths of personal tragedy. Entertaining and ultimately uplifting, this book can be read as a descent into madness, or a tale of personal salvation.
