www.DickProenneke.com - "Alone in the Wilderness" is the story of Dick Proenneke living in the Alaska wilderness. Dick filmed his adventures so he could show his relatives in the lower 48 states what life was like in Alaska, building his cabin, hunting for food and exploring the area. Bob Swerer has taken the best footage from Dick's films and he has created 3 videos about Dick, "Alone in the Wilderness", "Alaska, Silence and Solitude" and "The Frozen North". You can purchase all of them in DVD or VHS format from the www.DickProenneke.com website.

I watched this video many, many years ago & it probably had more effect on me than any other video. It would appear that this good man could do anything & everything to craft a great life in the wilderness. And he filmed the whole thing. Wow!

this is the best documentary ever I watch it everytime it is on PBS never get tired of it. He worked so hard to build the cabin. It is now a historical site n still stands today. He passed away in the late 90's I believe. He is someone we can all learn from and take a page from his book n make it our own. He is a testament to hard work.

I'm 64 and my dad just passed away at the age of 90, He loved this movie and would watch it over and over. He said it reminded him of the days when he was in the CC Camps in the state of Washington where he helped to build Chelan State Park when he was young. He taught me survival skills before I started kindergarten. (That's preschool for you young whippersnappers!). I was able to start a fire with a flint rock at the age of 5. Hell, I almost started the backyard on fire one day. Didn't get my ass beat. After he put the fire out, he said, " now let's see what you did wrong so that dosen't happen again".Learn some basic survival skills. You may just need it some day.
