9780160729942: More Readings from One Man's Wilderness: The Journals of Richard L. Proenneke, 1974-1980

Richard L. Proenneke—a modern-day Henry David Thoreau—built a cabin in Twin Lakes, Alaska, during the spring of 1968, sparking thirty years of personal growth in which he spent the majority of his time strengthening his relationship with the wilderness around him. Following in the footsteps of One Man’s Wilderness, a classic book compiling some of the mountain man’s journals, More Readings from One Man’s Wilderness chronicles Proenneke’s experiences with animals, the elements, park visitors, and observations he made while hiking in Lake Clark National Park and Preserve. A master woodcraftsman, a mechanical genius, a tireless hiker with a keen eye, and a journalist, Proenneke’s life at Twin Lakes has inspired thousands of readers for decades. Editor John Branson—a longtime friend of Proenneke’s and a park historian—ensures that Proenneke’s journals from 1974–1980 are kept entirely intact. His colloquial writing is not changed or altered, but Branson’s footnotes make his world more approachable by providing a background for names and places that may have otherwise been unknown. Any reader with a love for conservation and true-life wilderness narratives will undoubtedly admire and relish Proenneke’s tales of living in the wild.

Product Description:

Richard Proenneke was a master of woodcrafts and camp craft, a keen observer of the natural world, a mechanical genius, a tireless hiker, and a journalist for more than thirty years. He lives a storied existence in a small log cabin he built in the Alaskan wilderness. An active yet reluctant participant in the epic struggle to protect some of Alaska's wild lands for future generations, Proenneke kept meticulous journals of his time in the wilderness, some of which has already been published in the highly successful One Man's Wilderness. This collection, edited by Proenneke's longtime friend, John Branson, covers the years 1974 through 1980 and describes his time at Lake Clark, the rehab and restoration at Twin Lakes, and how he managed to live harmoniously with the natural world.

Book Description:

The fascinating journals of an inspiring and iconic wilderness conservationist.
