Christopher Johnson McCandless (12 February 1968 – c. 18 August 1992), also known as Alexander Supertramp, was an American wanderer who, in April 1992, hiked into the Alaskan wilderness with little food and equipment, hoping to live a period of solitude. Four months later, he died of starvation near Denali National Park. In 1996, Jon Krakauer wrote a book about his travels titled Into the Wild, which inspired the 2007 film of the same name.
