Yukon Men

Image 1 / 10

Just 60 miles from the Arctic Circle lies a town on the edge of civilization: Tanana, Alaska. This frozen village of 200 people is part of an unknown America where men hunt and trap to survive, subsisting like modern day cavemen.  Hypothermia and starvation are a constant menace, and at these extreme temperatures it's an epic struggle to find the meat and fur vital to the town's survival. Yukon Men follows Stan Zuray who escaped his troubled past in Boston to settle in the Yukon 40 years ago. Stan learnt to survive by trial and error and now he is passing on all his knowledge to his son, Joey. Meanwhile Charlie Wright moved to Tanana 20 years ago and is the man who villagers come to with any problem. This small band of men risks their lives to put food on the table, and keep their way of life alive.
