Having watched the PBS movie many many times with my family, it was a joy to learn there were also books. I was excited to read his words & see his photos for myself. I bought this book for father's day for my father, who upon reading it, said it "blew the movie out of the water!". I'm half way through the book now, and am having a hard time writing this review without stopping to continue reading & learning about this man's magnificent journey.

In an age where virtually everyone is obsessed with technology, One Man's Wilderness is a breath of fresh air. Being a young and aspiring carpenter myself, it was hard not to marvel at Dick's craftsmanship and passion for doing something right, not to mention using only the power of his own two hands. Reading through his journals I often imagined what it must of felt like being a totally free man, what it must of felt like to wake in the morning without the stress of bills and deadlines constantly lurking in your mind.

In a world where everyone seems to want someone else to take care of them, Dick's attitude towards life can be a great lesson. What are you really doing with your life? Do we really need to be glued to our TVs every evening? Do we really need our cell phones constantly at our side. How well do we know each other nowadays, or even the environment around us? I often wonder how many people in the world even know the genuine satisfaction one gets from providing themselves with food through a garden.

One thing's for sure in my mind, whether your dreams are small or grand, Dick Proenneke is a true inspiration. I only hope to one day be able to fulfill my life the way he did out in the Alaskan wilderness.

When i began reading this book,i didn,t know what to expect but what a good surprise!It reads like a robinson crusoe story in the wilderness.Sure,it is a short story since he talks only of the building of his camp.But then,the photos themselves are worth the price of the book..Can,t wait to read the full personnal journal!Buy with confidence..
