by Sam Keith – An Alaskan Odyssey
“From the journals of Richard Proenneke”
From Proenneke’s journal, and with first-hand knowledge of his subject and the setting, Sam Keith has woven a tribute to a man who carved his masterpiece out of the beyond.
To live in a pristine land unchanged by man. . . to roam a wilderness. . . 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. . .this is One Man’s Wilderness.
Great book, magnificent pictures. From the sod and moss roof, to the hand-made wooden hinges, all done with hand (non-power), tools. . . this book is an inspiration.
