Description

Throughout history, many people have escaped to nature either permanently or temporarily to rest and recharge. Richard L. Proenneke, a modern-day Henry David Thoreau, is no exception. Proenneke built a cabin in Twin Lakes, Alaska in 1968 and began thirty years of personal growth, which he spent growing more connected to the wilderness in which he lived. This guide through Proenneke's memories follows the journey that began with One Man's Wilderness, which contains some of Proenneke's journals. It continues the story and reflections of this mountain man and his time in Alaska.

The editor, John Branson, was a longtime friend of Proenneke's and a park historian. He takes care that Proenneke's journals from 1974-1980 are kept exactly as the author wrote them.

Branson's footnotes give a background and a new understanding to the reader without detracting from Proenneke's style. Anyone with an interest in conservation and genuine wilderness narratives will surely enjoy and treasure this book.
