Many have viewed the "Alone in the Wilderness" video, which shows how Dick Proenneke built his own cabin in Alaska, alone and with only hand-tools. You may have wondered what his cabin looked like inside, this video shows how Proenneke lived. The video was made by someone who visited the cabin in 2008. Proenneke donated the cabin to the State of Alaska after his death and it is now a tourist attraction.
Born in 1917 in Iowa, Proenneke decided to live a life of solitude in the Twin Lakes area of Alaska, 40 miles from civilization, and so he built this cabin in 1967. He lived there for over 30 years, until the hard Alaskan winters and his advanced age made him decide to finally leave the cabin in 1999. He died in 2003.
