The wilderness of Alaska has been both a suspense and adventure for everyone who has heard of Alaska. And what about the man who spent more than three decades among the wild animals and rough patch of the Earth!
Let's know more about his story.
"Eight and a half miles can be covered in minutes in a car on an expressway, but what does a man see? What he gains in time he loses in benefit to his body and mind."
"Too many men work on parts of things. Doing a job to completeness satisfies a man."
"I enjoy working for my heat. I don't just press a button or twist a thermostat dial. I use the big crosscut saw and the axe, and while I'm getting my heat supply I'm working up an appetite that makes simple food just as appealing as anything a French chef could create."
"If you don't need to eat, well don't kill it, I don't confuse my digestive system, I just season simple food with hunger." All these pictures were shot by Dick himself on a Bolex windup camera. Also the narration is from his personal journal.
"Learn to use an axe, and respect it and you can't help but love it. But abuse one and it will wear your hands raw and open your foot like an overcooked sausage."
