Ken Smith spent four decades living alone in a cabin in the Scottish Highlands. In this life-affirming memoir, he shares the story of his life from his working-class origins in Derbyshire, to the years he spent travelling in the Yukon and how he came to be the Hermit of Loch Treig. Looking back through decades of diary entries, Ken reflects upon the reasons he turned his back on society, the vulnerability of old age and the wonder of a life lived in nature.
