One Man's Alaska

Contest to win a copy of One Man's Wilderness

July 30, 2010


This website,, was named in honor of a famous book about a man who lived in Alaska. That book is named One Man's Wilderness, written by Richard Proenneke.

Mr. Proenneke moved to Alaska in 1950 (before Alaska was a state), initially working on Kodiak Island. In 1968 Mr. Proenneke "retired", and moved to an area known as Twin Lakes, where he built a cabin in the wilderness with his own hands, ran into the occasional bear, took a lot of video footage, and wrote the journal that eventually become One Man's Wilderness. He lived in that cabin for nearly thirty years.
