Alone In The Wilderness

Post by JesterJosev » Mon Mar 12, 2012 7:12 am

I remember as a child watching Alone In The Wilderness on TV, and being fascinated by the skill, self sufficiency, and charm of Dick Proenneke. I managed to find the website and was pleased to find this treat, a 9 minute clip ( ... YJKd0rkKss) from an old favorite show. I figured I would pass it along, and see if anyone else remembered it!

Makes me want to try my hand at living his lifestyle. He showed us all we kned to know, right :D

Plenty of food all around, like having a grocery store in your back yard :o

Recently, the PBS, channel 21 has had his series of videos broadcast. Really educational. Glad the park service up there is in charge of his property and preserves it.

Thank you Josev :)
