Season Two, Episode Ten: The Hermit
At 20 years old, Christopher Thomas Knight drove to the woods in central Maine and then left his car—and the world as most of us know it. He made himself some crude shelter, he stole food from vacation homes located nearby, he read stolen books, and he just…lived. Alone. Voluntarily. For 27 years.
Michael Finkel shares Knight’s story in his new book called The Stranger in the Woods—and he shares it with us, today. Listen below.
