Into the Wild is a 1996 non-fiction book written by Jon Krakauer. It is an expansion of a 9,000-word article by Krakauer on Christopher McCandless titled "Death of an Innocent", which appeared in the January 1993 issue of Outside. The book was adapted to a film of the same name in 2007, directed by Sean Penn with Emile Hirsch starring as McCandless.

Many wild plant names are derived from early Greek, Latin, or Old English and their antiquity can often cloud their original meaning. As the names of some plants have passed through the ages, their initial significance may have became distorted through mistakes in spelling, grammar, translation or simply through misunderstanding. In the eighteenth century the Swedish naturalist Linnaeus sought to bring order to the confusion of botanical classification by introducing a system of scientific names that would be universally understood. This book traces the origins of both the popular English names and the scientific names of many of the most common species of wild plants and trees in Great Britain. With detailed line drawings of some of the plants mentioned, John E. Stevens provides a comprehensive glossary of plant names from 'Aaron's rod' to 'Yew', making this a perfect pocket guide for keen gardeners and plant enthusiasts.
