A New York Times Bestseller "The Wild Truth is an important book on two fronts: It sets the record straight about a story that has touched thousands of readers, and it opens up a conversation about hideous domestic violence hidden behind a mask of prosperity and propriety."–NPR.org In the more than twenty years since the body of Chris McCandless was discovered in the wilds of Alaska, his spellbinding story has captivated millions who have either read Jon Krakauer's iconic Into the Wild or seen Sean Penn's acclaimed film of the same name. And yet, only one person has truly understood what motivated Chris's unconventional decision to forsake his belongings, abandon his family, and embrace the harsh wilderness. In The Wild Truth, his beloved sister Carine McCandless finally provides a deeply personal account of the many misconceptions about Chris, revealing the truth behind his fateful journey while sharing the remarkable details of her own. Exposing the dark reality that existed behind the McCandless's seemingly idyllic home in the suburbs of Washington, D.C., Carine details a violent home life, one where both parents manipulated the truth about a second family—a deception that pushed Chris over the edge and set the stage for his willing departure into the wild. And though he cut off all family ties, Carine understood—through their indelible bond and some cryptic communication—what Chris was seeking. This understanding, kept under wraps for years as Carine struggled to maintain a relationship with her parents, now comes to spectacular light in the pages of The Wild Truth. In the decades since Chris's death, Carine and her half-siblings have come together to find their own truth and build their own beauty in his absence. In each other, they've found absolution, just as Chris found absolution in the wild before he died. Beautiful and haunting, told with candor and heartbreaking insight, The Wild Truth presents a man the world only thought they knew—and the sister who has finally found redemption in sharing the rest of their story.

LA VERITÀ MAI RACCONTATA SU CHRIS MCCANDLESS NEL LIBRO-RIVELAZIONE DELLA SORELLA DEL DISCUSSO PROTAGONISTA DI «INTO THE WILD». Nel 1993 Jon Krakauer pubblicò un articolo sulla rivista «Outside», intitolato «Death of an Innocent» (Morte di un innocente). Le parole di Krakauer sul giovane Chris McCandless che aveva trovato la morte in Alaska, dopo aver abbandonato la famiglia e aver vissuto per mesi senza soldi, viaggiando da solo nella wilderness, sollevarono un polverone. Chi considerò Chris un sognatore, chi un pazzo, chi un illuso, chi un idealista, chi un ribelle. Krakauer decise allora di trasformare l’articolo in un libro, «Nelle terre estreme», che ebbe un successo straordinario e che ispirò Sean Penn nel film «Into the Wild». Chris McCandless è suo malgrado diventato un mito: rappresenta la giovinezza che non ha paura di perdere tutto pur di seguire i suoi sogni. Ma Chris è anche un ragazzo in carne e ossa, con una famiglia che ha abbandonato. E le ragioni della sua scelta sono quelle che Krakauer aveva cercato di comprendere con l’aiuto della sorella di Chris, Carine. Ma Carine aveva chiesto a Krakauer di rispettare il silenzio su alcuni aspetti della vita del fratello che coinvolgevano i genitori e lei stessa. Tuttavia, a più di vent’anni dalla morte di Chris, Carine ha deciso che è ora di raccontare anche quella parte di verità che era rimasta in ombra. E racconta la storia della propria famiglia, di un padre violento, bigamo e, al tempo stesso, religiosissimo, di una madre sottomessa e insieme complice, spiegando perché la scelta di Chris «è stata la cosa più sensata che potesse fare». Un libro coraggioso, lucido, sensibile, la descrizione di una famiglia devastata e devastante, la storia di un ragazzo che si conferma una persona straordinaria...

W. E. B. Du Bois was a public intellectual, sociologist, and activist on behalf of the African American community. He profoundly shaped black political culture in the United States through his founding role in the NAACP, as well as internationally through the Pan-African movement. Du Bois's sociological and historical research on African-American communities and culture broke ground in many areas, including the history of the post-Civil War Reconstruction period. Du Bois was also a prolific author of novels, autobiographical accounts, innumerable editorials and journalistic pieces, and several works of history. Black Reconstruction in America tells and interprets the story of the twenty years of Reconstruction from the point of view of newly liberated African Americans. Though lambasted by critics at the time of its publication in 1935, Black Reconstruction has only grown in historical and literary importance. In the 1960s it joined the canon of the most influential revisionist historical works. Its greatest achievement is weaving a credible, lyrical historical narrative of the hostile and politically fraught years of 1860-1880 with a powerful critical analysis of the harmful effects of democracy, including Jim Crow laws and other injustices. With a series introduction by editor Henry Louis Gates, Jr., and an introduction by David Levering Lewis, this edition is essential for anyone interested in African American history.

The Truth about Nature

The Truth about Nature

Environmentalism in the Era of Post-truth Politics and Platform Capitalism Bram Büscher. ———. “Globalization, Science, and the Making of an Environmental Discourse on the Wild Coast, South Africa.” Environment and Planning A 46, no.

How should we share the truth about the environmental crisis? At a moment when even the most basic facts about ecology and the climate face contestation and contempt, environmental advocates are at an impasse. Many have turned to social media and digital technologies to shift the tide. But what if their strategy is not only flawed, but dangerous? The Truth about Nature follows environmental actors as they turn to the internet to save nature. It documents how conservation efforts are transformed through the political economy of platforms and the algorithmic feeds that have been instrumental to the rise of post-truth politics. Developing a novel account of post-truth as an expression of power under platform capitalism, Bram Büscher shows how environmental actors attempt to mediate between structural forms of platform power and the contingent histories and contexts of particular environmental issues. Bringing efforts at wildlife protection in Southern Africa into dialogue with a sweeping analysis of truth and power in the twenty-first century, Büscher makes the case for a new environmental politics that radically reignites the art of speaking truth to power.
