I think the book or series is from the late 70s early 80s. It's based in the future; the character was born in a desolate world and grew up with an almost animalistic survivability. It was not by L.E. Modesitt. I want to say it had something to do with a binary sun.

The main character was like a troubleshooter. The book may have actually been published late 50s or early 60s. The action was pulp fiction-ish.

    That's not much to go on. There are a lot of stories like this. You might want to look at scifi.meta.stackexchange.com/questions/9335/… to help jog your memory about what else you might remember that would be helpful. – Buzz Apr 17 '19 at 0:34

The second idea I had (after The Forever Hero) was Dumarest Saga, written by E.C. Tubb. The first (Winds of Gath) was published in 1969 with 30+ published over the next 15 years.

As mentioned in the comments though, there is really not a lot of detail in the question and the general shape matches a lot of books.

Might be Harry Harrison 's Deathworld series. There's a good Wikipedia page (https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Deathworld)
