Everything is TOUGHER IN ALASKA. From earning a living to burying the dead, everyday life is shaped by unimaginably severe weather, impassable terrain and mind-bendingly vast distances. The people who call Alaska home have a long history of overcoming adversity and adapting to this extreme environment.
Host Geo Beach, who has lived in Alaska for more than 25 years, reveals the guts, self-reliance, ingenuity and technology it takes to endure and prosper in the challenging land considered America's last frontier. He takes us on a state-spanning journey to explore the most demanding jobs and far-flung outposts to see what it really takes to survive — and even thrive — in Alaska.
Whether joining troopers patrolling precincts the size of entire Lower 48 states, hanging utility line in subfreezing conditions, or collecting garbage before the local black bear population can get to it, Geo gets his hands dirty to learn how Alaskans face the intense challenges of daily life in this majestic land. Along the way he introduces us to some of the eccentric characters you could only meet in this most extreme of places.
See an amazing feature of Alaska rarely explored on television — its people — with the thirteen episodes of the premiere season of TOUGHER IN ALASKA gathered in this single excellent DVD set.
