This is an interesting article that starts out about a guy who was recently arrested in Maine after living as a hermit in the woods for 27 years. He got by burglarizing homes for necessities.

The piece highlights a book on the manís life and motivations ([I]The Stranger In The Woods[/I]), and discusses several other books about how we live (or donít) with nature, wilderness, and/or in isolation. It touches on ideas about our increasing disconnection from one world while we reflexively connect with another, or at least distract ourselves from that other.

The articleís not an extremely long read but itís not a quickie, either. Itís worth 15 minutes when you have time to focus on it, especially if youíre looking for some book suggestions for those long hours alone in the turkey blindÖ :wink LOL.

That's an interesting read...though I don't think "true hermit" really applies to a guy who subsisted by breaking into people's homes and other places and stealing supplies every 9 days (on average, per his own estimate).
