DESCRIPTION:
(from Discovery's press release, April 2014) Deep in the Alaskan wilderness lives a newly discovered family who was born and raised wild. These are the ALASKAN BUSH PEOPLE, premiering on Discovery on Tuesday, May 6th at 10:00pm EST/PST. Billy Brown, his wife Ami and their seven grown children - 5 boys and 2 girls - are so far removed from civilization that they often go six to nine months of the year without seeing an outsider. They've developed their own accent and dialect, refer to themselves as a "wolf pack" and at night, all nine sleep together in a one-room cabin. Simply put, they are unlike any other family in America. Recently, according to the Browns, the cabin where they lived for years was seized and burned to the ground for being in the wrong location on public land. They were devastated, but instead of giving up and moving back to society, they decided to go deeper into the wilderness to continue their way of life. Their new land is located in the Copper River Valley, where temperatures can drop to 60 degrees below zero. It's a race against the clock as the winter gets closer and closer. The Browns must work together to build a new cabin that will protect them from the harsh Alaskan environment, but the falling temperatures and dwindling daylight make it harder and harder. They'll use what the land provides to construct their small home and will also have to contend with other rogue bush people. It'll be tough, but having lived this way for decades, the family wouldn't have it any other way.
