One Man Surrounded by Nature

Richard Proenneke dreamt of living in a land where nature dominated and man had no influence. He found his dream spot in a remote part of Alaska. He built a cabin there and kept a journal of day to day life. "One Man's Wilderness : An Alaskan Odyssey" by Sam Keith is a compilation of Richard's journal entries and photographs of Richard. Winner of the National Outdoor Book Award, this book details the beauty and challenges of living in the remote Alaskan wilderness.
