Dick Proenneke moved to Alaska to live his dream. With hand tools and common sense he built the life that he always knew he wanted. The documentary "Alone in the Wilderness" tells his story through his own journal writings and self-made films.

This is the interior of Dick’s cabin. He made everything, from the bed to the bookcase, even the fireplace.

<3 Dick Proenneke, from Alone in the Wilderness. Nothing physically attractive  about him (he's quite old here and may be missing teeth).  But his ability to survive alone  in the wilds of Alaska, build his own house, hunt his own meat, fish, carve his own spoons, repel bears   --  he's a porn star to me! I got a little hot and bothered watching the PBS show.
