For more than 30 years a man by the name of Dick Proenneke lived alone in the Alaskan Bush. His only neighbors were the wolves and grizzly bears and his only transportation was his canoe and a good set of legs.

The Frozen North is Dick's own filmed account of his life alone in this "One Man's Wilderness."
