Sam Keith had privileged access to the journals and photographs of Richard Proenneke and created a bestseller when this book was first published in the 1970s. With this updated 26th edition, Alaska Northwest proudly brings the book back into print.
""[Proenneke's] journals froms the text of this handsome book, and
his parkling color slides illustrate it with a beauty that tugs at
your heart and sets your heels to itching just a little. You owe
yourself the pleasure of this book."" ---Biloxi Sun
""One Man's Wilderness is the best modern piece of prose about Alaska, the one that gives the truest picture of what living in the bush today is like for the lone individual."" ---Anchorage Daily News
