Many people dream of escaping modern life, but most will never act on it. This is the remarkable true story of a man who lived alone in the woods of Maine for 27 years, making this dream a reality—not out of anger at the world, but simply because he preferred to live on his own. A New York Times bestseller In 1986, a shy and intelligent twenty-year-old named Christopher Knight left his home in Massachusetts, drove to Maine, and disappeared into the forest. He would not have a conversation with another human being until nearly three decades later, when he was arrested for stealing food. Living in a tent even through brutal winters, he had survived by his wits and courage, developing ingenious ways to store edibles and water, and to avoid freezing to death. He broke into nearby cottages for food, clothing, reading material, and other provisions, taking only what he needed but terrifying a community never able to solve the mysterious burglaries. Based on extensive interviews with Knight himself, this is a vividly detailed account of his secluded life—why did he leave? what did he learn?—as well as the challenges he has faced since returning to the world. It is a gripping story of survival that asks fundamental questions about solitude, community, and what makes a good life, and a deeply moving portrait of a man who was determined to live his own way, and succeeded.

He kissed her again, running the tip of his tongue, just the tip, between her lips, teasing her. His hand rubbed against the side of her face and with his other hand, he started to run his fingers at the point where her blouse and her jeans met. Then his fingers were on her skin, and she started to shudder. He ran his fingers gently along her belly and then grabbed a firm hold of her waist. He pulled her to him, landing his mouth on hers. He lay her down on the rug, coming down on top of her and beside her at the same time. She was nervous now, more nervous than she thought she would be. But it was too late...he had assumed full control.
