Aesthetic Creed

This Aesthetic Creed was written by Christopher McCandless, and is one of hundreds of pieces of McCandless’ legacy, among photos, letters, postcards, and writings. You can find it in the newly released Back to the Wild by the Christopher Johnson McCandless Memorial Foundation, Inc. Just got it in the mail a couple days ago, and it’s already getting dog-eared left and right.
