The Stranger in the Woods: The Extraordinary Story of the Last True Hermit

by Michael Finkel

I mean, I for one could use a break from society now and again, but this book brings it to a whole other level. An amazing story about a man who survived three decades in the woods without any human interaction, The Stranger in the Woods is about Christopher Knight, a former alarm technician, and his life in the wilderness. Through his knowledge and skill, he was able to survive, but not without disrupting a nearby town, who became alarmed at the phantom thief haunting their town. Filled with the bizarre adventures and quirky habits of an isolated man, Michael Finkel, the author, brings to life yet another stranger-than-fiction story.
