We Recommend: The Stranger in the Woods by Michael Finkel
Stranger in the Woods
Christopher Knight lived in a tent encampment in the Maine Woods for 27 years, never being seen or speaking to another human. He lived unlike anything you can imagine--breaking into homes for food, batteries, propane, books, even mattresses--waking up in the middle of the night so as not to freeze to death in the heart of the winter.
Michael Finkel has written a compelling book about Knight being a true hermit. Trying to understand the reasons that would make one choose to live so utterly alone and the problems Knight faced when he was forced to live amongst people again--in a jail of all places--after being arrested for the things he stole.
