unsuccessful. A town of 200 people was forced to face a shocking reality when one of their own was lost for good.
YUKON MEN follows the residents of Tanana, Alaska as they face one of the most brutal winters on record. People struggle to find food and heat; battle life-threatening predators just to survive. Boys grow into men quickly here because they must help the family survive. Father-son bonding and tensions take on a new meaning in this environment. The stakes are high in Tanana, and to defy the odds, to survive and to battle the harsh Alaskan wilderness, the residents must overcome obstacles, stick together and prevail.
