Author Bio
Jon Krakauer
Bestselling non-fiction author Jon Krakauer is known for his ability to combine harrowing true stories with history and philosophy. He began his professional career as an adventure and mountaineering writer, with his work appearing in National Geographic and Outside magazine, and collected in EIGER DREAMS (1990). His next book, INTO THE WILD (1996), told the story of Christopher McCandless, a young man who died while wintering in the Alaska wilderness. The book became a massive bestseller, as did his third book, INTO THIN AIR, a harrowing account of his participation in the fatal "1996 Mount Everest Disaster." With UNDER THE BANNER OF HEAVEN (2003), a critical account of the fundamentalist elements of the Mormon religion, Krakauer proved the breadth of his interests and talents. In 2007 INTO THE WILD was made into a major motion picture, directed by Sean Penn.
