Capricorns as stated previously are naturally hard workers and strive for something more in life.

Into the Wild is a wild ride to endure. It was based on Christopher Johnson McCandless’s life who was found dead in the wilderness after giving away his savings to charity, burning his cash, and abounding most of his possessions. A moose hunter found his decomposed body four months later. 

After graduating college in 1991, McCandless traveled through the West and Southwest as he liked the idea of adventures through survival. After abandoning everything he owned on his back, he changed his identity to Alexander Supertramp. He began his journey of raw, unfiltered nature presented, and he entered the wild without a map or a goodbye to his family. Although determined, McCandless didn’t realize how fatal this new living could be. 

Jon Krakauer uses facts about what McCandless did, while also doing some investigating on what could have happened.
