The incredibly fascinating story of the Maine hermit.

I found a truly fascinating story by Michael Finkle about hermit, Christopher Knight. Knight lived for almost three decades in the woods of Maine, surviving by stealing, before being arrested.

To the spooked locals, he became a legend—or maybe a myth. They wondered how he could possibly be real. Until one day last year, the hermit came out of the forest.”

You can read the entire article here.

“The breadth of his thievery was impressive. He’d fled the modern world only to live off the fat of it.”
