Christopher McCandless, also known as Alexander Supertramp, was an adventurer who ventured into the Alaskan wilderness in 1992, with very little food and equipment. Four months later, Chris paid the ultimate price and starved to death, weighing only 30 kilograms when found. He lived and died in a converted bus used as a shelter, where the pictures and his diaries were found.

Inspired by the McCandless's story, American writer and mountaineer Jon Krakauer wrote and published a book Into the Wild about McCandless's travels.

“The very basic core of a man's living spirit is his passion for adventure. The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences, and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon, for each day to have a new and different sun.” – Christopher McCandless
