Alaska, Silence & Solitude

"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. He has an amazing capacity to care for all of his needs with the skill of his hands! 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 website.

Here is a segment on his winters there in Alaska:

And 25 years later...

And here is the cabin today:
