A little wild books

In 2007 I saw the movie Into the wild and I remember I liked it. I wanted to read the book, but until two days ago I dind't. I'm sure by now most of you have read it, but I just want to say that I didn't expect it would be so good. I don't know why, I thought it would be a little bit boring and too much descriptive. Instead I read a good book, something that dragged me through America, to places I will never go. One of the things I liked the most, is that Jon Krakauer also talks about other stories and people, rather then just the adventure of Chris McCandless. I have to admit it: even if most people had talked so good about this book, I was so surprised while reading it that I didn't want to put it down. The other book I want to mention is Il ragazzo selvatico by Paolo Cognetti. For what I saw this book has not been translated in english, but it's something related to Into the wild. The experience that the writer did is different from what McCandless lived, but I like to think both of them are somehow connected, (Cognetti himself tells us one of his reading during this period is the Jon Krakauer's book). These two books are something different for me, something lately I've been curious about. Sometimes I like to exit my reading comfort zone and this time it's been a little wild choice.
