Sam Keith, author of "One Man's Wilderness, An Alaskan Odyssey" writes this book from daily journals of Richard Proenneke that record his Alaskan wilderness experience. Keith is a Cornell University English graduate, who lived in Alaska for over three years before beginning his writing and teaching career in New England.
