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 not at odds with the world, but content with one's own thoughts and company. Thousands have had such a dream, but Richard Proenneke lived them. He found a place, built a cabin, and stayed to become part of the country. This 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.
