This 93-Year-Old Man Lived Out His Dream In A Remote Wilderness Homestead In California

Meet Jack English. He is 93-years-old here, and when his wife died from ovarian cancer, he moved his life to a place that he had loved since he was a child: a remote cabin the the Ventana Wilderness. He’s not your average fellow, but he worked hard to build quiet place for himself in this chaotic world. He built his home from the ground up, kept busy by crafting violin bows, and lived out his dreams.
