To live in a pristine land unchanged by man; to roam the wilderness through which few other humans have passed; to choose an idyllic site, cut trees, and build a log cabin; to be a self-sufficient craftsman, making what is needed from materials available; to be not at odds with the world, but content with one's own thoughts and company: thousands have had such dreams, but Richard Proenneke lived them. This book is a simple account of the day-by-day explorations and activities he carried out alone, and the constant chain of nature's events that kept him company. From Proenneke's journals, and with first-hand knowledge of his subject and the setting, Sam Keith has woven a tribute to a man who carved his masterpiece out of the beyond.--From publisher description.

Please note: This is a companion version & not the original book. Sample Book Insights: #1 I had bought a felt-tipped marker and on the back of my camper I printed in big letters, DESTINATION: BACK AND BEYOND. It was always a good feeling to be heading north. In a Nebraska town, I had bought a smooth-touring camper. #2 I helped Babe the next few days. We patched the roof of his house, put a new nose cowl on the Taylorcraft, and there she was, all poised to take me over the mountains on a thirty-minute flight to journey’s end. #3 I was delayed in arriving at Port Alsworth, and when I did, I found the lake frozen. I would have to pack my gear the three and a half miles along the shore to the cabin. It was as close to heaven as I was going to get. #4 I was back in the wilderness, alone. I was here to test myself, not that I had never done it before. I was fifty-one years old, and I wanted to find out what I was capable of.

A novel of rare genius, The Man with the Golden Arm describes the dissolution of a card-dealing WWII veteran named Frankie Machine, caught in the act of slowly cutting his own heart into wafer-thin slices. For Frankie, a murder committed may be the least of his problems. The literary critic Malcolm Cowley called The Man with the Golden Arm "Algren's defense of the individual," while Carl Sandburg wrote of its "strange midnight dignity." A literary tour de force, here is a novel unlike any other, one in which drug addiction, poverty, and human failure somehow suggest a defense of human dignity and a reason for hope.
