Description

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, fell trees, and build a log cabin...to be a self-sufficient craftsman...to be content with your own thoughts and company...Thousands have such dreams. Few realise them. This is the inspiring true tale of one man's journey to leave the rat race and live a simpler life in the wilderness. Using journals, photographs, and a first-hand knowledge of his subject, Sam Keith has woven a tribute to a man who carved his dreams out of the Alaskan wilderness.

Review quote
