Livin Off the Land

May 18, 2014 on National Geographic (US) at 10:00 PM


In the great American wild, there's cold hard cash just waiting to be found. In the mountains of Appalachia, Billy Taylor and his sons have just received an online order for 8-pounds of wild ginseng. In the forests of Michigan, mushroom hunters Chris... (more) Matherly and Levena Holmes call on the help of local experts to fill a 150-pound order for Hen of the Woods and Chicken of the Woods mushrooms. On the Delaware River, eel fisherman Ray Turner has to split his time between repairing a hole in his weir and finishing an order for 200 smoked trout. In Martinez, California, burl hunters Al DeSilva and Herb Deliz have only two days to fill their largest order of the season. The work is tough, but for the men and women who work the land everyday, it is all worth it.
