Storyboard Text

  • During the 1980s, Christopher McCandless grew up in a D.C. suburb, born into a well off family. No one expected how Chris' life would end up, however...
  • After being sent to and graduating from college, Chris seemed to have a bright future ahead of him. 
  • Chris, however, had a blazing internal conflict with his parents, as well as the world in general.
  • Unexpectedly, he donated all of his saved money, changed his name, and left his life to go travel through the U.S. His end goal was to go to Alaska and live off the land...
  • He called it his "Great Alaskan Odyssey"
  • The story focuses on themes such as nature, society, and self-discovery.
  • I just lost my car, but that's okay, ill walk.
  •  He traveled around the U.S. for two years, and met many people on the road. Unlike a typical hitch hiker, he kept in contact with them over his journey.
  • His communication with others as well as his personal journal served as well-documented sources to describe his journey in full. 
  • Chris reached Alaska, and survived off the land for 113 days.Finally, in August of 1992, Chris died of starvation in an abandoned bus in the Alaskan wilderness.
  • Chris goes down as an example of someone who desired no part in society, and took refuge in ultimate solitude. He wrote in his journal that he lived a happy life, and seemed content to die in the wild.
