Alaska: The Last Frontier

Discovery • 2011 • IMDb: 7.7
Alaska The Last Frontier

Deep in the Alaskan wilderness live the Kilcher family and their isolated community. The Kilchers, led by patriarch Atz Kilcher, have cultivated and lived on their homestead outside Homer, Alaska, for four generations. These men and women of the wild truly live off the land. They spend the limited months of summer and autumn gardening, hunting and fishing for food, gathering supplies from the land and preparing their animals’ safety in preparation for surviving the harsh Alaskan winters. The breathtaking beauty of Alaska sometimes hides the fact its winters can be incredibly harsh, especially for those who live in the state's outlying areas. `Alaska: The Last Frontier' perfectly illustrates this reality, as the programme profiles life for the Kilcher family in the isolated community of Homer. For four generations the Kilchers have lived off what their 600-acre homestead has provided, but cultivating that living is never easy. Led by patriarch Atz Kilcher and his brother Otto, the family spends the short summer and fall gardening, hunting and fishing for food, gathering supplies from the land and preparing their animals for the winter. Viewers, who may or may not have a fancy phone by their side while watching on their big-screen high-def TV, also see the Kilchers living off the grid, where running water and electricity aren't daily staples, nor is contact with the outside world. Atz, by the way, is the father of music superstar Jewel, who does not appear on the show. Most live completely off the grid, with no running water and no electricity – and are proud of it. But freedom comes at a price for this family of 21st century pioneers; and, whilst life is never boring, survival is never easy.

Most people enjoy the modern technologies and conveniences of today -- smartphones, tablets, cable, and satellite TV among them -- but there are people who choose to live off the grid and in the unspoiled wilderness, where dangers like mudslides, falling trees, and bears are all parts of life. `Mountain Men' profiles three such people. Eustace Conway, who has lived at the western edge of the Blue Ridge Mountains in North Carolina for more than 25 years, teaches interns about the old ways of living with nature. Tom Oar needs an entire year to prepare for the seven-month-long winter on Montana's Yaak River. In Alaska, Marty Meierotto must gather enough wood to survive, in complete isolation, winters that can have temperatures drop to as low as 60 degrees below zero. It's not an easy life but for these mountain men, it's life as they know it.

The men of Tanana have to work hard to hunt and fish to live a hunter/gatherer lifestyle for their families. They work individually and together in this small town of 200 so everyone is cared for. You don't see them any closer than when one family is in need; for whatever reason. This shows the ups and downs of a small isolated town in the middle of the harsh wilderness of Alaska. Tanana, Alaska, is like the Pacific Northwest's version of Hotel California: You can check out any time you like, but you can never leave. Well, not exactly, but describing the town as remote is akin to saying the winters are chilly. Located at the junction of the Tanana and Yukon rivers deep in the state's interior, the town has no roads in or out, and for its 200-plus residents, survival in the winter is a daily challenge. `Yukon Men' unveils the people of Tanana, who struggle to find food, heat their homes, and ward off predators. But they stick together, a bond that helps them overcome the harsh conditions. Just 60 miles from the Arctic Circle lies a town on the edge of civilization: Tanana, Alaska. This frozen village of 200 people is at the junction of two powerful rivers, with no roads in or out, where wolves howling through the frigid night air remind the residents how isolated they really are. As the men come together to face these new obstacles, each is also challenged on a personal level. At the end of the day, each man will be pushed to the limit. Pushed to decide: How far will they go to live free? To be a Yukon Man? The Season 7 of Yukon Men premiered April 21, 2017.
