More readings from One man's wilderness : the journals of Richard L. Proenneke, 1974-1980 by Richard Proenneke( Book )

7 editions published between 2005 and 2012 in English and held by 844 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Richard L. Proenneke?a modern-day Henry David Thoreau?built 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 Man?s Wilderness, a classic book compiling some of the mountain man?s journals, More Readings from One Man?s Wilderness chronicles Proenneke?s 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, Proenneke?s life at Twin Lakes has inspired thousands of readers for decades. Editor John Branson?a longtime friend of Proenneke?s and a park historian?ensures that Proenneke?s journals from 1974?1980 are kept entirely intact. His colloquial writing is not changed or altered, but Branson?s 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 Proenneke?s tales of living in the wild

3 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 332 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"John W. Clark (1846-1896) was one of the first Euroamerican residents of Alaska, arriving at St. Michael with the Western Union Telegraph Company Russo-American Expedition to build a worldwide telegraph line in 1866. He was a distinguished trader on the Yukon, Kuskokwim and Nushagak Rivers between 1868 and 1896. Clark lived at Nushagak nearly twenty years and was a founder of the world-renowned Bristol Bay commercial salmon fishing industry. He was an entrepreneurial fur trader and merchant and likely the first English speaking resident of the Bristol Bay region. Clark was a close friend of the Native people of western Alaska and traveled widely about the region by dogsled and baidarka. He married and established a large extended family in western Alaska."--Publisher's description
