One Man's Wilderness: An Alaskan Odyssey (Unabridged)

by Sam Keith & Richard Proenneke

Open iTunes to Buy


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 Richard 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 Proenneke's journals, and with first-hand knowledge of his subject and the setting, Sam Keith has woven a tribute to a man who carved his masterpiece out of the beyond.

Amazing man

Caution--this book will make you want to ditch everything and move to the wilds of Alaska. Amazing man, incredible book.

A must have!

I've listened to this audiobook at least 10 times. It is probably in my top five favorites. Relaxing and enjoyable read.


I found this book to be very uninteresting. Most of it is a simple account of daily events - what time he woke, what he are for breakfast, the temperature, etc. at one point he decides to foster a baby caribou, but it dies. Was he upset, sad, mad, anything? There is no character development and I found it difficult to stay interested.
