Winner of the National Outdoor Book Award. Celebrating the 50th anniversary of when Dick Proenneke first broke ground and made his mark in the Alaskan wilds in 1968, this bestselling memoir features an all-new foreword by Nick Offerman plus color photographs not seen in print for over 20 years. 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, cut trees, and build a log cabin...to be a self-sufficient craftsman, making what is needed from materials available...to be not at odds with the world, but content with one's own thoughts and company... Thousands have had such dreams, but Dick Proenneke lived them. He found a place, built a cabin, and stayed to become part of the country. One Man's Wilderness is a simple account of the day-to-day explorations and activities he carried out alone, and the constant chain of nature's events that kept him company. From Dick's journals, and with firsthand knowledge of his subject and the setting, Sam Keith has woven a tribute to a man who carved his masterpiece out of the beyond.… (més)

Slightly embarrassed that it took me fifty years to read this masterpiece in outdoor writing. Composed as a diary, each entry offers a precise and open view of what it is like to live in nature’s majesty among the creatures of the Alaskan wilds. Crafting a small cabin with only hand tools, and building furniture and other outbuildings to make his life more manageable, Proenneke gives us an open window into not only his Alaskan life but his soul as well. He was a kind and gentle man who honored the astounding lives around him by treating everything he came in contact with love and respect. Well-written and very interesting, the book is as timely today as it was fifty years ago. One of the most amazing humans I have ever been made aware of, and to think he loved his new home so much he stayed there for over thirty years until old age made him return to civilization. ( )

From the cover” Celebrating the 50th anniversary of when Richard Proenneke first broke ground and made his mark in the Alaska wilds in 1968, this special edition of the best-selling memoir features an all-new foreword plus color photographs not seen in print for over twenty years.

“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, cut trees, and build a log cabin … to be a self sufficient craftsman, making what is needed from materials available … to be not at odds with the world, but content with one's own thoughts and company ….. and the constant chain of nature's events which kept him company.”

This book is in the form of Dick Proenneke's journals and photographs, telling the fascinating story of building a log cabin by hand with native materials and living sixteen months by himself with only the occasional outside contact. His skilled craftmanship made his cabin and its furnishings a thing of beauty; it's now part of the National Park Service.

“The themes of self-sufficiency, thrift, and a kindred love of wilderness and wildlife give this book an enduring audience.” p 270

Over the years, I've read several of the 'making a home in the remote wilderness' genre books. This one is by far the best I've read. It absolutely pulled me along. The full color photographs are a treat to the eyes.

This is highly recommended to anyone who loves the wild places and dreams of living there.

I received a copy of this 50th anniversary edition through LibraryThing's Early Reviewer's program in exchange for a fair and unbiased review.

I've spent some solitary time in the northern Montana wilderness, working as a fire lookout, so this book pulled at me -- and it turned out to be everything I'd anticipated. The volume is considered a classic of twentieth-century wilderness writing -- a story simultaneously evoking a sense of pioneering, of escape, and of appreciation for an unspoiled world.

One Man's Wilderness is an edited diary of sixteen months in the live of a most remarkable man, who went alone into the Alaska backcountry to build a solitary cabin and a life for himself. The style is matter-of-fact, but still conveying a strong sense of the amazing adventure and glorious setting; the author's accompanying photographs are lovely, compelling, and informative. It's an wonderful story, and a story well told. It would be hard to finish the volume and not feel feel both envy and longing, for the man's adventure, his accomplishments, and his skill. Perhaps the most remarkable part of the story, though, is that it continued for decades after the end of this volume's narrative -- the diary's author spent some thirty years living in that cabin.

Very highly recommended. ( )

Richard Proenneke sought out to do the one thing that every person can only dream of doing: leaving the urban life behind, building a place of their own, and living completely off the grid. He picked the frigid northwest as his sanctuary, vying for the isolation of the untouched wilderness of Twin Lakes, Alaska. He built his beautiful cabin alone with only the animals to converse with, and the occasional visit from his friend Babe via plane replete with necessary food and equipment. Proenneke's journals provide us with his whimsical view on nature, his appreciation of the wild, and his optimism when faced with adversity. His photos are envious, and it is hard to not want to read this book outdoors, under a tree, while looking at the world a little more closely. ( )
