Kull has obviously been seeking wisdom and peace in a variety of ways during his life, but this book was his theses for a doctorate at a Canadian university. His study of the effects of wilderness on solitude led him to the coast of Patagonia. There he stayed as a hermit with only limited contact to the outside world for a year. Imagine a cross between Walden and The Mosquito Coast. (He even has a website of the experience which was interesting). The book alternates between excerpts of his almost daily journal entries and chapters where he attempts to define the experience. I loved the journal, but found the other chapters difficult at times. Overall, the book was worth the effort I made to read it and he deserved the degree.
