'Sometimes it is difficult for a person to know their strengths and weaknesses while living among

others; one way to discover them is to live alone. Of course, most people will never venture far

from the comforts of home, but Proenneke felt the call of the wild and lived the second part of his

life in Alaska. . . . Keith and Proenneke were coworkers on Kodiak Island and formed a friendship

that lasted for decades. . . Keithâ€s writing is clear and descriptive; one can sense each strike of

the ax and draw of the knife. The reader feels he is experiencing the adventure as well. The

journal descriptions of the Alaskan wilderness flow from the page to the reader.' (Foreword

Reviews)'Many of us will never realize the dream of such an escape from our hectic, complex life

to that of the solitude of the wilderness. But in the pages of this book we can share with a man

who lived his dream. The book is certain to bring much pleasure to anyone who loves the

outdoors.' (Portsmouth Times)'This is a record of a man in our own time who went into the bush.

It is the story of a dream shared by many, fulfilled by few, brought into sharp focus by the beautiful

color photographs and the simple account of Proenneke's life.' (Burlington Free Press

)'Richard Proenneke, an emigre from Iowa to Alaska, kept a journal during the time he was fulfilling

his dream of living in an altogether undeveloped part of Alaska. Parts of the journal have been

made into a book by Sam Keith, along with colored photos that prove Alaska is certainly one of, if

not the, most beautiful places anywhere.' (Boston Globe)'The best modern piece of prose about

Alaska, the one that gives the truest picture of what living in the bush today is like for the lone

individual.' (Anchorage Daily News)'It is soul-reading -- the simplicity of a man's inner feelings

stated in terms which leave no misunderstandings . . . A classic of its kind.' (Lansing State

Journal)'[Proenneke's] journals from the text of this handsome book, and his sparkling color slides

illustrate it with a beauty that tugs at your heart and sets your heels to itching just a little. You owe

yourself the pleasure of this book.' (Biloxi Sun Herald)'This book made a big splash when it

debuted in 1973. Keith based the text on the journals and photography of Richard Proenneke,

who, after racking up years of 50-hour work weeks, did what many of us only fantasize about: he

chucked it all and went to live in the woods. . . Proenneke has become an icon for naturalists.

Though few will follow Proenneke's lead, his story can be quite inspiring.' (Library Journal

) From the Author 'Somehow Proenneke understood that his simple efforts; build shelter, stay

warm, find/hunt food, observe nature, respect life, would be well worth documenting, and boy

howdy was he right. If you like hearing a TV chef walk you through a recipe for enchiladas, just

wait until you consume the creation of a log home in this volume, from the ground up.' (Nick

Offerman, foreword) See all Editorial Reviews
