In fact, probably thinking he had an unexposed roll of film; Chris reloaded an already exposed roll and began shooting. Without knowing, Chris was in fact taking a picture over another picture creating a classic double exposure and giving the viewer more to contemplate and question.

He was 24 years old.

Return To The Wild - The Chris McCandless Story

Many details of his peregrinations will never be known, but it turned out that Chris had stashed a photo album in South Dakota before heading north on his final adventure, and after careful study the pictures yielded a wealth of crucial information.

Krakauer had the plant tested for any toxins and, through tests on Hendysarum alpinum, it was discovered that it contained an unidentifiable form of toxin.

However, when the Eskimo potatoes from the area around the bus were later tested in a laboratory of the University of Alaska Fairbanks by Dr. Thomas Clausen, toxins were not found. Krakauer later modified his hypothesis, suggesting that mold of the variety Rhizoctonia leguminicola may have caused McCandless's death.


Rhizoctonia leguminicola is known to cause digestion problems in livestock, and may have aided McCandless's impending starvation. Krakauer hypothesised that the bag in which Chris kept the potato seeds was damp and the seeds thus became moldy.

If McCandless had eaten seeds that contained this mold, he could have become sick, and Krakauer suggests that he thus became unable to get out of bed and so starved.

His basis for the mold hypothesis is a photograph that shows seeds in a bag.

Following chemical analysis of the seeds, Krakauer now believes that the seeds themselves are poisonous.
