One Man's Wilderness
An Alaskan Odyssey 50th Anniversary Edition
by Sam Keith from the journals and photographs of Dick Proenneke.
foreward by Nick Offerman
Celebrating the 50th anniversary of when Dick Proenneke first broke ground and made his mark in the Alaskan wilds in 1968, this special edition of his best-selling biography features an all-new foreword plus color photographs not seen in print for over 20 years.
To live in a pristine land unchanged by man... to roam a wilderness through which few other humans have passed... to choose an idyllic site, cut trees, and build a log cabin... to be a self-sufficient craftsman, making what is needed from materials available... to be no at odds with the world but content with one's own thoughts and company...
Thousands have had such dreams, but Dick Proenneke lived them. He found a place, built a cabin and stayed to become part of the country. This book is a simple account of the day-to-day explorations and activities he carried out alone and the constant chain of nature's events that kept him company.
From Dick's Journals. With firsthand knowledge of his subject and setting, Keith has woven a tribute to a man who carved his masterpiece and life out of the beyond.
