Marty Meierotto

One hundred miles south of the Arctic Circle in the harsh Alaskan wilderness, trapper Marty Meierotto spends the sub-zero winters living in a primitive one-room cabin. During the brief daylight hours, he sets his trapline and must catch everything from minks to wolverines in order to support his family back home. He eats only what he kills and must survive in a place where few men have dared to make their home. This season, Marty rolls the dice on a new line in the windswept highlands of Alaska’s Revelation Mountains. The remoteness of the new area will force Marty to use only snowshoes and a tent as he builds a new trapline from the ground up.
