The story of Dick Proenneke, who decided to leave the lower 48 and live in the remote wilderness of Alaska in 1968.
Dick was 51 years of age when he entered the Alaskan wilderness. He lived there on Twin Lakes until he was 82 years old.
The cabin he built is still there and now part of the National Park Service.
The book, One Man’s Wilderness: An Alaskan Odyssey, documents the story of Dick Proenneke and is a very good read.
