"Mountain Men" (TV show) is a reality docu-series on History Channel.

In the wilderness, every minute is a fight for survival. Only a fearless few have what it takes to live as ...
"Mountain Men."

For more than 25 years, Eustace Conway has lived off the land deep in Daniel Boone country at the western edge of North Carolina's Blue Ridge Mountains. In this unspoiled wilderness, dangers like mudslides, falling trees, ravaging weather and hungry bears are a fact of life. He does his own lumbering, tanning, and blacksmithing, subsisting solely on what he can grow, fish or hunt.

Getting back to nature ... going off the grid ... searching for a more truthful existence ... however you describe it, the "simple life" is not so simple. A new 8-part series, "Mountain Men," follows Eustace and others who have chosen the wilderness life as they race against time to obtain the food and supplies they'll need to make it through the brutal winter months ahead.



Ancient survival skills can mean the difference between life and death in the wild. It takes a whole year for Tom Oar to prepare for the seven-month-long winters on the Yaak River in Montana, about 100 miles from the nearest town. He needs to chop some 700 square feet of wood to heat his home and find enough food to last the long, unrelenting winter. All the while, he must keep a vigilant eye out for aggressive grizzlies, mountain lions, and wolves.

Meanwhile, up in the northern range of Alaska, Marty Meierotto is piloting his bush plane in search of animal pelts to make a living. But staying alive is a full-time job. As the days grow shorter and shorter, he must cut and gather enough wood to survive, in complete isolation, an Arctic winter that can reach 60 degrees below zero. He'll live off mountain sheep and caribou — if the wolves and bears don't get him first.

True American originals, these Mountain Men are the last of their kind, and the clock is ticking.

"Mountain Men" is produced for History by Warm Springs Productions. Russ McCarroll is executive producer for History. Executive producers for Warm Springs are Marc Pierce and Chris Richardson.
