Overview


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.

    A reviewer

    After reading 'One Man's Wilderness, An Alaska Odyssey' I looked forward with anticipation to this expanded version outlining the history of this remarkable individual, Richard L. Proenneke who lived in harmony with the great Alaska wildneress and many of the creatures contained therein. It features the significant details of his life, friends, and struggle with both the natural elements as well as the proposed change in the status of his beloved home. Definitely a book that will call you back several times to refresh not only your perceptions but also your soul as you develop a greater appreciation of nature and how one man can make a difference in so many ways.

    Great!

    If you enjoyed "One Man's Wilderness, you would definitely enjoy this one. More details including he panned for gold! I hope there will be another book made from his diaries. Can't get enough of living in an Alaska log cabin. He had a wonderful life.
