Richard L. Proennekea modern-day Henry David Thoreaubuilt a cabin in Twin Lakes, Alaska, during the spring of 1968, sparking thirty years of personal growth in which he spent the majority of his time strengthening his relationship with the wilderness around him. Following in the footsteps of One Mans Wilderness, a classic book compiling some of the mountain mans journals, More Readings from One Mans Wilderness chronicles Proennekes experiences with animals, the elements, park visitors, and observations he made while hiking in Lake Clark National Park and Preserve. A master woodcraftsman, a mechanical genius, a tireless hiker with a keen eye, and a journalist, Proennekes life at Twin Lakes has inspired thousands of readers for decades. Editor John Bransona longtime friend of Proennekes and a park historianensures that Proennekes journals from 19741980 are kept entirely intact. His colloquial writing is not changed or altered, but Bransons footnotes make his world more approachable by providing a background for names and places that may have otherwise been unknown. Any reader with a love for conservation and true-life wilderness narratives will undoubtedly admire and relish Proennekes tales of living in the wild.
