Preview: Alone in the Wilderness, with Dick Proenneke – Part 1

Here’s a 10-minute version of the first film he made documenting the beginning of his 30 years at Twin Lake, Alaska.

    Brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr! A special type of person this, but then there have always been just enough of them to push our frontiers out to the oceans of the world, and then some.

    His films were fascinating and, because of a two-year bout with insomnia, I managed to see all of them on late night public TV. I couldn’t have managed to do what he did but I always envied him the knowledge and capabilities that made it possible for him to survive in the wilderness so gracefully.
