Into the wild

Names define a person to a point. Chris had a personality that was larger than life. His pseudonym Alexander Supertramp personified his spirit. It is only after we get to know Chris within the pages of Krakauer's novel that his nickname begins to make sense. There must be a connection between the man and the name to make the identity authentic. Chris was, if nothing else, an authentic person and his pseudonym fit with his vitality and adventurous spirit.
