My plans to retrace Captain Cook's unfinished voyage have been postponed a year while I work on the next Marine Diesel Basics book and get my new boat SV Oceandrifter ready for sea.
In the 1940’s American-born Willard (Kitchener) MacDonald jumped his troop train heading to WWII. Fearing authorities he lived as a Hermit deep in the northern wilderness of Nova Scotia, Canada, for more than 60 years. This is the true story of The Hermit of Gully Lake, a man who lived a life that the rest of us could never endure. He was a soul in exile and yet you will discover that he touched the lives of so many, in ways that no one can really explain — Willard became a Legend.
A strange and remarkable man. Though few of us might envy him, the way he lived his life at least show all of us that choices are possible; that working for a corporation all our lives, buying a property to fill it with stuff is only one choice among.
Here’s the trailer for the documentary “Willard, Hermit of Gully Lake” directed by Amy Goldberg and released in 2007.
