We just finished the audio book on our last trip - it's a great read / listen as well.  I can't recommend it enough.  (One Man's Wilderness, by Sam Keith)

Been following him as my hero a long time. Could not find a better life lived if one wanted to go it alone. A wonderful legacy.

Me too, what an interesting fellow. His skills with very basic tools are incredible.

Long time follower of Dick.

Thanks for posting, Bigfoot Dave

I teach a boat building class as well as a Building Trades and Engineering program. I have had all my students watch both of his videos,"Alone in the Wilderness" part 1 and 2 for the last 15 years.    

 

Dick's innate abilities and precision are very humbling.

 

I never knew there was a condensed version for free! Thanks.
