I never heard of Dick Proenneke until tonight. I was looking up some videos on how to build timber frame place out of logs and basically stumbled on this beautiful footage. His footage, of himself, building a life in the forest of Alaska in 1968.
There is also a second video which was just released in 2011
The third is yet to be released!
If you love this, as I did then perhaps you will also want to read his Journals? Which can be downloaded free here.
Sometimes the internet is so cool. How else would I have ever met him?
