However, Selfridges was the brain child of an American, Mr. Harry Gordon Selfridge, whose life is depicted in the PBS Masterpiece series "Mr. Selfridge."

    Alone in the Wilderness 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.

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. duration 57:22   TVG (Secondary audio: DVI)
