Stranger in the Woods: the extraordinary story of the last true hermit by Michael Finkel
Now, I'm known as a relatively quiet person who relishes peace and quiet and time with my thoughts daily, but even I would crave human contact after a week or so. That is why I find this story so incredible, that a person would prefer to live totally without human contact, in the Maine woods for 27, I repeat, Twenty-seven years! This book gives a glimpse into Chris Knight's life living completely hidden, how he did it and why. Intriguing. A quick read.
