Kurzbeschreibung

21. Februar 2014
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, fell trees, and build a log cabin...to be a self-sufficient craftsman...to be content with your own thoughts and company...Thousands have such dreams. Few realise them. This is the inspiring true tale of one man's journey to leave the rat race and live a simpler life in the wilderness. Using journals, photographs, and a first-hand knowledge of his subject, Sam Keith has woven a tribute to a man who carved his dreams out of the Alaskan wilderness.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Fantastic adventure in beautiful Alaska Bush Country 15. September 1999
Format:Taschenbuch
I was at Port Alsworth, Alaska, on Lake Clark this July 1999, and bought this book at the Lake Clark Vistor Center. The beauty of this country is awesome and spectacular. The book tells the adventure of a man called back in time. Dick chose to travel into bush country building a comfortable cabin with his two hands at the cost of $40 dollars. Surviving the severe weather with wisdom and common sense. Enjoying and making friends with the wild animals. He had great respect for God's country and the animals. Friendship with Babe Alsworth, a true christian native and bush pilot. I met Babe's son, Glen and his wonderful family, at Port Alsworth. The book is vivid in discribing Dick's many months of survival and adventure in the Alaska bush. The book is very well written and it makes you feel like you are living the adventure with Dick. Pictures of the Alaska country and cabin help to visualize your thoughts. In the busy world of today, it was refreshing to read this book and reflect on how in ages past people lived day by day. I enjoyed reading the book very much.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Great wilderness life story! 8. November 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
I just want to say "ditto" to the above review. If you've ever fantasized about spending a good chunk of time living off the land in the rugged back-country, surviving by using your own wits and muscle, then this one's for you. Well written with wonderfully telling photos. Two thumbs way up!

4.0 von 5 Sternen Diary of a loner 19. August 2013
Von AW
Format:Taschenbuch|Von Amazon bestätigter Kauf
A very well written documentation of one who chose the wilderness as his retirement home. A striking contrast in many ways to an emotional adventure story like Krakauer's "Into the Wild". Proenneke planned his stay (and every day) meticulously. The book describes single days during his first year, which give a good impression of the challenges he faced and the solutions he came up with.
It remains obscure which changes to the diary entries Sam Keith committed. The collection also lacks cohesion in some parts and skips many aspects of Proenneke's life (like hygiene, like most spare-time activities and exploration trips). But this will not spoil the reading fun, if you are not expecting something else.

5.0 von 5 Sternen To Do a Thing to Completion 4. März 2005
Von Ross E. Nelson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
I can understand some people giving this book or the related video only three or four stars; this is one of those stories that depend heavily on the outlook you bring to them. Some might find Proenneke's feat mildly interesting but wonder why he did it. I found it enthralling.

You have to be fascinated by a man who seemed capable of creating almost anything he needed from raw materials using only hand tools. He carves out wooden spoons; builds his log home; turns gas cans into buckets, pots, and in-ground coolers; builds a cache on stilts; works up sturdy door hinges from stumps; and on and on. In our age of repetitive assembly of the same part or being a small cog in a service industry machine, in an age of such specialization even American farmers whose granaries overflow run to the supermarket for bread and then complain about the price, in an age of abundance that comes at the price of over-dependence on others, Richard Proenneke reached a satisfying level of self-reliance now nearly extinct.

I'm reminded of the "Little House on the Prairies" book series in which father Ingalls briefly laments having moved to South Dakota where he was dependent on the railroad trains to bring in food and fuel, compared to the days of self-sufficiency in the woods of Minnesota and Wisconsin.

Proenneke's dream isn't for everyone. Imagine trying to do what he did if your skills are incomplete or you have a family to bring up. Living in the middle of wild Alaska would be more suffering than fulfilment. But what a dream to have, in which you turn your back on the rat race and build what you need to live from start to finish, or as Proenneke says "to do a thing to completion." His accomplishments give me daydream release from the tedious grind of bills and mindless work.

5.0 von 5 Sternen One of the great journals of wilderness living 12. Februar 2002
Von David W. Johnson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
This is a powerful book and has quite a following. I was given the book by one of my best friends, which I consider a wonderful gift. This book has it all, beautiful photos, Richard's journal notes are amazing in their insight to his thinking and how this adventure unfolded. It is a simply wonderful book, and has people traveling to Alaska just to see the setting for such a balanced book. This book lays claim to new territory, and the claim is valid. No wonder it sells well, it is captivating reading and makes you look hard and close at your own life.

5.0 von 5 Sternen One Man's Wilderness 6. Juni 2002
Von Merrie Goodrich - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
This has to be one of my very favorite books. I have read it front to back at least 7 times! It is written with the true adventurer in mind. Every detail of his experience makes the reader wish it were he/she that was there with him. If you have ever wished you could just go off into the woods, build a cabin and be self-sufficiant, This is the book for you.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Some great lessons from a great man Ten stars 4. Dezember 2005
Von Beth DeRoos - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Von Amazon bestätigter Kauf
Having watched the PBS special about Richard Proenneke this is a book I wanted to own and its much more interesting in my opinion than the video PBS showed since it goes into deeper detail on how he came to be in Alaska and the day to day life Richard Proenneke lived which was remote and physically celibate aside from an occasional mail/food drop.

Unlike so many books on remote living one doesn't read about wild life becoming a danger, but one reads of man and wildlife living in harmony and a man taking only what he needs when it comes to hunting and not letting any of the animal go to waste. Thus its a lesson in environmental living.

Also loved the book because its a lesson in the whole 'how to' attitude that is lost on so many Americans who demand a soft life. It was a joy to read how eating simple, using the outdoors to stay physically, mentally and spiritually healthy which cost Richard Proenneke little. Was a joy to read and see such wonderful photographs of a man who built his own cottage, made his own storage for meat, gathered his own fuel, and lived contently for decades, even though he only set out to test himself to see if he could last less than two years in a remote area in such frontier ways.

There are some valuable lessons to be learned here for the many soft living Americans I know, who never look beyond themselves and the bigger picture. Thankfully I know a good mumber of Richard Proenneke like people. The book should challenge the reader in at least a few ways.
