Alaska: The Last Frontier

Alaska: The Last Frontier is a docu-series depicting the harsh life on the 640-acre Kilcher Homestead, and the family that lives on and around that land. Yule Kilcher, the late patriarch, homesteaded the land 70 years ago and it is still in use by his family today.

The Last Frontier follows his two sons, their families and the subsistence lifestyle they continue to lead. The brutal, long Alaskan winter forces anyone living off the land to secure enough food in the summer months to make it through 8 months of cold and darkness. This series follows these families as they attempt to harvest enough resources to survive the winter.
