Storyline

Documentary tells the story of Dick Proenneke who, in the late 1960s, built his own cabin in the wilderness at the base of the Aleutian Peninsula, in what is now Lake Clark National Park. Using color footage he shot himself, Proenneke traces how he came to this remote area, selected a homestead site and built his log cabin completely by himself. The documentary covers his first year in-country, showing his day-to-day activities and the passing of the seasons as he sought to scratch out a living alone in the wilderness. Written by Anonymous

Simply Amazing
13 March 2005 | by (Wisconsin) – See all my reviews

This documentary was amazing. I was really jealous of how a man can adapt to the wilderness and make everything for himself. Dick Proenneke was so skilled at crafting anything he needed. I'm used to going out to Home Depot and buying supplies and then making stuff. Dick had so much skill, talent, and patience... it just amazed me. He knew exactly what to do and had no errors. The Alaskan wilderness was so beautiful and spectacular. Dick's narrating was phenomenal too because his tone of voice just blended in beautifully. He had such great relationships with the wildlife too. It was just like if he knew what to do throughout the whole documentary. This documentary purely receives a 10/10 = A++
