To live in a pristine land unchanged by man … to roam a wilderness through which few other humans have passed … to choose an idyllic site, cut trees, and build a log cabin … to be a self-sufficient craftsman, making what is needed from materials available … to not be at odds with the world but content with one’s own thoughts and company.
