This is one of my favorite books of all time. It sparked my interest in reading about people who have set out to start a new life in a new location, particularly in Alaska. The book follows Richard Proenneke as he builds himself a log cabin and all of its furnishings using only hand tools. His diary entries provide the main source of his account and it is hard not to grow to like this rugged, inventive, and all around handy person as he thrives in the Alaskan Wild.
