Price Paid: $14.95
Pros: There is also a VHS tape available that matches this book. Iíve watched the tape and read the book multiple times. The book is a diary of Mr. Proenneke move to Twin Lakes, Alaska and building his cabin with hand tools. No chain saws or power tools! He lives off the land fishing and hunting and growing his own vegetables. The photos in the book and photography in the tape are excellent. He makes his own wooden spoons, furniture, wooden bowls and kitchen equipment from tin craft. He fishes for trout and burbot using a bush line, spinning rod and bamboo fly rod. You can watch clips of his video on You Tube. If you like the video the book is 10X better. This book and VHS tape were being run on the PBS channel fund raiser a few years back. Book price is $14.95, can't remember what the video price was? Great read!
