ABOUT "HACIA RUTAS SALVAJES" AND LEVEL OF SPANISH:

Jon Krakauer's "Hacia Rutas Salvajes" examines the true story of Chris McCandless, a young man, who in 1992 walked deep into the Alaskan wilderness and whose SOS note and corpse were found four months later. Internationally bestselling author Jon Krakauer explores an obsession which leads some people to explore the outer limits of self, leaving civilisation behind and seeking enlightenment through solitude and contact with nature.

The book was made into a Golden Globe nominated film written and directed by Sean Penn. Originally written in English, we will be discussing the Spanish translated version of the book.

If you understand approximately 80% of the below, we recommend you join us for the book club. All discussion will be in Spanish.

Recuerdos desde Fairbank! Esto es lo último que sabrás de mí, Wayne. Estoy aquí desde hace dos días. Viajar a dedo por el Territorio del Yukon ha sido dificil, pero al final he conseguido llegar. Por favor, devulve mi correo a los remitentes. Puede pasar mucho tiempo antes de que regrese al sur. Si esta aventura termina mal y nunca vuelves a tener noticias mías, quiero que sepas que te considero un gran hombre. Ahora me dirijo hacia tierras salvajes.

FUTURE EVENTS:

The book club is held once a month, with a different book each month. We change the country, theme and style of literature, and always choose highly acclaimed books by great authors. ¡Esperamos verte pronto!
