Director: Richard "Dick" Proenneke

Producer: Bob Swerer Productions


Dick Proenneke's simple, yet profound account of his 30 year adventure in the remote Alaska wilderness continues in this sequel to "Alone in the Wilderness". Watch through his eyes as he continues to document with his 16mm wind-up Bolex camera, capturing his own amazing craftsmanship, the stunning Alaskan wildlife and scenery and even a visit from his brother Ray (Jake). His epic journey takes you on a vacation away from the hustle and bustle of today's fast-paced society, and is a true breath of fresh air.

10 out of 10 Acorns

Another Proenneke movie no one has reviewed this yet. This is more footage of the a man in his early 50's starting over in AK building himself a cabin with just hand tools he packed in. I would suggest watching The Frozen North first to get a more complete story of his awe inspiring story.

But this is a great addition once you have seen that to feed your desire to see more of Pronneke's life. It is stories of lives like this that truly inspire and help you create your own dreams. I feel his work is especially good material to watch by a nice fire in the middle of winter when you might be questioning why you wanted to live a simpler life, Pronneke helps remind you.
Switching from electric heat to a rocket mass heater reduces your carbon footprint as much as parking 7 cars. Tiny ad:
