Simplicity The idea of Transcendentalism

Jon Krakauer's Into the Wild is a modern piece of transcendentalism, the idea that in order to connect with reality, you must live a pure life without the need for materialistic items. Into the Wild is a non-fiction book that talks about the life of Christopher McCandless, a transcendentalist who wanted to appreciate life for what it was, and his journey to The Stampede Trail in Alaska to fulfill his wish.
