Single DVD

Dick Proenneke retired at age 50 in 1967 and decided to build his own cabin on the shore of Twin Lakes. The first summer he scouted for the best cabin site, and cut and peeled the logs he would need for his cabin. Dick Proenneke returned the next summer to finish the cabin where he lived for over 30 years. Dick filmed his adventures, and Bob Swerer later turned the film into a video so we can all watch this amazing man build his cabin by hand.

Comments about PBS Alone in the Wilderness DVD:

I bought this DVD for my Son-in-law's birthday. After watching this show on PBS with me, he got just as addicted to Dick Proenneke and his life as I am!

Comments about PBS Alone in the Wilderness DVD:

This is an excellent documentary of life in rural bush Alaska. It follows the adventures of Dick Proenneke as he spends the summer of 1968 building a cabin by hand in the Twin Lakes region of Alaska, and continues throughout Dick's first winter in the area. The film accutely documents Dick's skilled cabin building and the trials of living alone apart from society. Reccomended for anyone with an interest in Alaska or in wilderness living.

This show is therapeutic

Comments about PBS Alone in the Wilderness DVD:

I love this show. I have one myself and watch it once or twice a year to be reminded that it is possible for one to be completely in control of his life. This copy was purchased for a Vietnam Vet who suffers from PTSD.
