Making a living off the land is tough, but for some, they wouldn’t have it any other way. For eel fisherman Ray, this means battling fast-moving river currents and constantly rebuilding his eel weir in preparation for the annual eel migration on the ... (more)Delaware River. For Billy and his sons, surviving off the land means hunting in the dense Appalachian Mountains for prized ginseng root. The Taylors have their first big order of the season, but they must first survive an encounter with a venomous snake in order to dig up the ginseng. Bloodworm hunters Andy and Jim race against the incoming tide to dig for worms in the mudflats of Maine, all the while avoiding waist-deep, quicksand-like mud pits. And burl hunters Greg and Albert are searching for box elder burls, but have only a day to drag the burls from a canyon before the sun sets.
