The Stranger in the Woods by Michael Finkel

Why would someone disappear from his family and spend 40 years in complete seclusion as a total hermit? That is the mystery at the heart of Christopher Knight’s story. Although never completely resolved, the exploration of a life completely separated from the world is fascinating. From the extremes in weather, the focus on survival, and the need to burglarize cottages lays the groundwork for Finkel’s excellent book. Highly recommended.
