Deep in North Carolina’s majestic Blue Ridge Mountains lives Eustace Conway, who has dedicated his life to the home he calls Turtle Island. Here he lives self-sufficiently, using ancient survival methods and primitive tools to fend off a relentless series of challenges to his way of life. Eustace contends with poachers, scavengers, illness, bad weather and the countless other struggles inherent to the life of a mountain man. This season, Eustace finally gets out of debt and is determined to find a more permanent source of income to protect his land for the longterm. He turns to Turtle Island’s greatest asset, lumber,but getting operations up and running is challenging this year, as a brutal winter descends across the mountains.
