For over twenty years his story has captivated millions, and yet only one person knew the truth behind his remarkable journey-until now. Through a tumultuous childhood, the McCandless siblings clung to each other amidst a chaotic home life, forming a lifelong bond and an unbreakable trust. So when Chris abandoned nearly all of his possessions, cut off all family ties, and forged an anonymous existence on the road, Carine understood what drew Chris away from all he had known. Having to face her own truth and surmount some crushing obstacles in the absence of her beloved brother, Carine drew strength from his constant presence while forging ahead on her own unique journey. A powerful and deeply personal story, The Wild Truth is both a revelatory glimpse into the life of Chris McCandless and the inspirational tale of one woman's resilience in the wake of unspeakable tragedy., MWT11632370, Made available through hoopla, McCandless, Carine,author,narrator., McCandless, Carine,author., McCandless, Carine., McCandless, Christopher Johnson,1968-1992, McCandless, Christopher Johnson,1968-1992., McCandless, Shelly,narrator., Midwestrda, Mode of access: World Wide Web., New York, NY :HarperOne, an imprint of HarperCollinsPublishers,[2014], Read by Carine McCandless, Matt Gardner and Shelly McCandless., The wild truth, The wild truth /Carine McCandless ; foreword by Jon Krakauer., Unabridged., Worth -- Strength -- Unconditional Love -- Truth., [United States]:Harper Collins Publishers,2014., computerc, data file, digital, eAudiobook hoopla, hoopla digital., https://d2snwnmzyr8jue.cloudfront.net/hpc_9780062350978_180.jpeg, n-us-akn-us---, online resourcecr, pcc, spoken wordspw, texttxt, unmediatedn, volumenc, xv, 277 pages, 16 pages of unnumbered plates :illustrations (chiefly color) ;24 cm
