Watch Mountain Men

"Mountain Men" is a unique reality show televised in a documentary style. The premise of the show is to explore the life of people who sustain their lives by living off the land in the mountains across the United States. The mountain men featured make their living off the land by selling the furs and pelts from animals they've trapped. Without wasting any part of the animals, they also make clothing, jewelry and other accessories from the bones, hides and pelts. In addition, trees provide firewood as an income-producing commodity.

The most self-sufficient man featured is Eustice who lives in the mountains of North Carolina. His life is completely sustained by the land. His extremely rustic home and outbuildings are built from trees he's cut and split off his land. With no indoor plumbing, water is pumped from the nearby mountain stream to an outside water source. Most incredible is Eustice's ability to get by with no vehicle or farming equipment. Horses are used for transportation as well as to plow his crops.

Another featured character of "Mountain Men" is Tom and his wife. They live in the mountains of Montana. Although they have electricity, running water and a vehicle, their food supply comes from trapping and killing animals. Every part of the animal is used to make jewelry, clothing, accessories and household goods that are used by them and sold for income.

The third mountain man lives with his wife and daughter in the mountains of Alaska. With the harshest conditions of all, this man must fly his small airplane at different times of the year to other parts of Alaska to hunt. Besides his plane, a snowmobile is used to traverse the snowy mountains to trap wild game. The pelts are sold for income and the meat is harvested for his family's food source.

Due to the nature of this program, "Mountain Men" requires some viewer discretion. However, the reality of the show is informative, entertaining and gives an historic look into the days of yesteryear for the whole family.
