In 1986, 20-year-old Christopher Knight left his home in Massachusetts, drove to Maine and disappeared into the woods. He would not have another conversation with another person for the next 27 years. Christopher Knight had no real plan for living in the woods, he just wanted to be alone. But he found a secluded area where he could live and came up with ingenious ways to survive. He broke into nearby cottages for food, books and supplies; he took only what he needed, but caused unease in the community plagued by the mysterious burglaries.
The Stranger in the Woods is a deeply moving portrait of a man determined to live his own way. This book compels the reader to re-examine their assumptions about what makes a good life. This is a great read!
