Mountain Men is a reality series which follows three men who have devoted their lives to survival in its simplest form. 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, these men risk it all living off the grid.
Deep in North Carolina’s majestic Blue Ridge Mountains lives the legendary mountain man Eustace Conway. At the age of 16, Eustace attended a Native American ceremony where spirits told him his destiny lay in the forests. Eustace would go on to acquire a few square miles of wild land and build a place where he and others could live self-sufficiently using ancient survival methods. He calls this sanctuary “Turtle Island,” and there he faces a relentless series of challenges to his lifestyle and threats to his survival. Eustace must contend on a regular basis with poachers, scavengers, illness, bad weather and the countless other struggles inherent to the life of a mountain man. Most importantly, he must repay a loan that he took out to pay off a lien which was threatening his ownership of Turtle Island. A new year finds Eustace, as always, meeting a myriad of challenges with the courage and commitment to the mountain man lifestyle that led him to establish Turtle Island in the first place.
