To live in a pristine land unchanged by man... to roam a wilderness through which few other humans have passed... to choose an idyllic site, cut trees and build a log cabin... to be a self-sufficient craftsman, making what is needed from materials available... to be not at odds with the world but content with one's own thoughts and company. Thousands have had such dreams, but Richard Proenneke lived them.

Intricate details of constructing a log cabin but without any reflection or metaphysical pondering. This book is not about the wilderness or nature, rather a technical report about constructing a log cabin.
