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 The spellbinding story of Chris McCandless, who gave away his savings, hitchhiked to Alaska, walked into the wilderness alone, and starved to death in 1992, fascinated not just New York Times bestselling author Jon Krakauer, but also the rest of the nation. Krakauer's book,Into the Wild, became an international bestseller, translated into thirty-one languages, and Sean Penn's inspirational film by the same name further skyrocketed Chris McCandless to global fame. But the real story of Chris’s life and his journey has not yet been told - until now. The missing pieces are finally revealed in The Wild Truth, written by Carine McCandless, Chris's beloved and trusted sister. Featured in both the book and film, Carine has wrestled for more than twenty years with the legacy of her brother's journey to self-discovery, and now tells her own story while filling in the blanks of his. Carine was Chris's best friend, the person with whom he had the closest bond, and who witnessed firsthand the dysfunctional and violent family dynamic that made Chris willing to embrace the harsh wilderness of Alaska. Growing up in the same troubled household, Carine speaks candidly about the deeper reality of life in the McCandless family. In the many years since the tragedy of Chris's death, Carine has searched for some kind of redemption. In this touching and deeply personal memoir, she reveals how she has learned that real redemption can only come from speaking the truth.

Nun, zwanzig Jahre später, erzählt seine Schwester Carine McCandless zum ersten Mal die wahre Geschichte ihres Bruders. Sie deckt auf, was Chris tatsächlich in die Wildnis trieb. Es war nicht die Romantik eines Lebens fernab der Zivilisation oder die Liebe zur Natur, die ihn anzog, sondern vielmehr die Flucht vor einer Familie, in der ein herrschsüchtiger Vater seine Frau und seine Kinder schlug, misshandelte und demütigte. Die Abkehr von einem Elternhaus, in dem der schöne Schein mehr galt als alles andere und in dem ein Netz aus Lügen das Bild der perfekten Familie aufrechterhalten sollte. Die deutsche Erstausgabe erschien im November 2014 unter dem Titel "Wild Truth" als Hardcover im btb Verlag.

Dive deep into the guts of the tea industry from the perspective of true insiders in the tea industry. Most tea drinkers never realize the depth of the story behind each cup. This book illuminates what even people who are in the tea business may not know. Packed with nitty gritty, real life stories and unearthing gems of knowledge about the tea business, this book reveals the deep inner workings of the tea business and maps out who the real players are and what they are really doing, as well as what you can do about it. Shana Zhang comes from a tea family and has a background unlike any other author on tea. She has worked for the largest tea export company in Yunnan and now runs her own venture, Wild Tea Qi.

The second half of the book explores the deeper reasons about why we brew tea, which will ultimately inform how you brew it. This book will change the way you buy and drink tea. Shana Zhang worked in the largest tea exporting company in Yunnan Province, China. She and J.T.

J.T. Hunter is the author of another book on subjects similar to this new one, which is also well worth reading.

A Wild Truth

Author: Frank Palescandolo
Publisher: iUniverse
ISBN: 9780595212033
Release Date: 2002
Genre: Fiction

A crime of gentility in Gramercy Park! The Sturtevant sisters, the park setting, could pass as a faded daquerreotype. Gramercy Park is still a private enclave in mid-New York, unsharing of secrets within codes of the society of the Five Hundred families. Mansions have features reflecting past, and present owners. This enclosure aches with regrets, crying out for liberty to love wildly, to roam, to sing a self, or to commit a crime. Early on the residents judged the Player's Club in the quadrangle to be a bad mix. Esme and Cecilie live in a mansion opposite the Player's Club. Cecilie, the younger, weds a promising actor, Adam Addams, who was reared in the Club, the son of janitors. Convicted of her murder, he stands condemned, and awaits sentence set by a report from the probation department. Dan Biggs, an officer, is burned out. Reports are ad hoc hurried tintypes, which belie the purpose of tailored sentencing. A devalued life devalues his own! Biggs is drawn like a fan to the theatricality of the crime. Among artists, he becomes an artist in mind, restoring depth to his emotional life. His report is a performance by a puppet theatre, which reenacts the wild truth of the crime. In a Court of Law? Outrageous! The denouement turns on the meaning of a locket, and its pathos for Esme and Cecilie.

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, e a otto dall’uscita del film di Sean Penn, 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...
