Have you ever wondered what it would be like to live your life off the grid? Have you wished you could shed the complications of modern society and live in the wilderness, using only the things nature has provided? Meet Eustace Conway, Tom Oar and Marty Meierotto of the new History series Mountain Men, three men who have devoted their lives to survival in its simplest form. But how simple is it really?
From the rugged Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina to the seven-month-long winters on the Yaak River in Montana to the frigid northern range of Alaska, the country is full of some very unforgiving terrain. Watch as these men face off against mudslides, falling trees, ravaging weather and even hungry animals, to make sure they obtain the food and supplies they will need to make it through the brutal winter months ahead.

In Alaska, Marty Meierotto completes his cabin build just in time for his family to touch down in the Revelation Mountains. While in Montana, Rich Lewis has a real-life cliffhanger as his dogs go one step too far in the pursuit of a bobcat and Tom Oar's skills are put to the test on a risky commission. In North Carolina, Eustace Conway pushes for the finish line, but a mistake brings his lumber operation to a screeching halt.
