The story of the "hermit" who lived in the woods of Maine for 27 years. The story is true, but almost unfathomable that he could live like this for so long.

I found this book fascinating! I liked the way the author inserted himself into the story and found a way to relate to this hermit. While he was doing that, he made Knight seem like a romantic figure that we could all learn something from. But as the book went on and we got reactions from the townspeople that Knight regularly robbed "in order to survive," I started to think of Knight as nothing more than a homeless person. I was surprised at how my view of him changed, but overall -- great story and fast read. I want to find more by this author.
