Christopher Johnson McCandless was a young American adventurer who died of starvation after hiking into the Alaskan wilderness in April 1992 with barely any food and very little equipment, declining even to take a compass with him.
For years, Chris McCandless had dreamed of an “Alaskan Odyssey” wherein he would live off the land of the Alaskan wilderness, far away from civilization, and “find himself.” Due to ill-preparedeness he met his fate whilst on his Alaskan Odyssey in August 1992. He was only 24 years old.
In 2007 Sean Penn turned Chris McCandless’ story into the movie ‘Into The Wild.‘ It was nominated for two Golden Globes and won the award for Best Original Song “Guaranteed” by Eddie Vedder. ‘Into The Wild‘ was also nominated for two Academy Awards.
