Alone in the Wilderness

I found this video on YouTube. I came across this video years ago on public television and I remember I was completely immersed. The video chronicles the adventures of Dick Proenneke.

At the age of 50 Dick decided to “retire” to the high mountains of Alaska. The video shows him chopping down and peeling trees and using nothing but hand tools to build a cabin. The video features some amazing carpentry skills, hard work and a true craftsman.

Dick’s retirement in his cabin lasted 30 years. He left his cabin to the National Park Service and it remains today as a popular visitor attraction in the still-remote Twin Lakes region.
