Jon Krakauer has written some of the most captivating creative non-fiction we’ve ever read here at DailyGame HQ, and his latest work, Into The Wild, was turned into a film that not only received critical praise but became one of the most anticipated DVDs of this still-young year. Into the Wild tells the story of a young man who, after graduating from college, ventures away from urban settings and essentially becomes a 1990s Thoreau. Although many people missed the film when it was in theaters, the DVD gives the home-viewing crowd plenty of time to absorb the tale at their own pace. And we’ve got three copies of the Into The Wild Collector’s Edition DVD to give away to three lucky readers.

DVD synopsis: Into the Wild is inspired by the true story of Christopher McCandless, a young man who abandons his life of comfort to pursue the freedom of life on the road, a quest that leads him to the Alaskan wilderness and the ultimate challenge of his life. This two-disc collector’s edition includes the feature film in Disc One, along with two special featurettes that take up the entirety of Disc Two. Screenplay and directed by Sean Penn and featuring an all-star cast, Into the Wild is “as stirring, entertaining and steadfastly thrilling as it is beautiful.”
