Alone in the Wilderness
Dick Proenneke retired at age 50 in 1967 and decided to build his own cabin on the shore of Twin Lakes. He returned the next summer to finish the cabin where he lived for over 30 years.
Dick filmed his adventures, and Bob Swerer later produced the film featuring this amazing man build his cabin by hand. In the late summer of 2010, Dick's brother, Jake, discovered a closet-full of unseen 8mm and 16mm film shot during Dick’s 30-year adventure living alone at Lake Clark. The film was turned over to the original "Alone in the Wilderness" producers, and the end result is “Alone in the Wilderness: Part 2.”
