He was 51 years old at the time and was getting ready to build a log cabin that would house him for the next 30 years. Originally a sport hunter and then a subsistence hunter, he eventually became a non-hunter and conservationist. A sequel, Alone in the Wilderness Part 2, has since been released as well and there is enough footage shot by Proenneke to produce a third installment.

He filmed the cabin construction as well as animals, birds and the surrounding area. He returned to the lakes in the following spring and remained there for most of the next thirty years, going to the contiguous United States only occasionally to be with his family.
