DESCRIPTION

Live Free or Die explores one of America's most remote subcultures, following six people who have left the modern world behind to live in backwoods and swamps where they hunt their own food, build their own shelters, and survive only on what they can produce with their own two hands and sharp intuition.

  • Live Free Or Die: Force of Nature
    Colbert has just a few days left to capture enough pelts to use for trading over the course of the year. Tobias sets off on an 80-mile journey north to establish a new primitive base camp.
  • Live Free Or Die: Killing Time
    In the heat of the Arizona sun, Tobias sets off on a journey through the Arizona Desert with only what he can carry on his back to survive. Down in the swamps of Georgia, Colbert is hot on the scent of an elusive feral hog. Along the waterways of the Blue Ridge Mountains, Thorn arrives in an area known for its beaver hunting. And after several days of breaking in his mule, Derik is finally ready to hit the road, but any sudden noise or change in weather could put their journey — and lives — at risk.
  • Live Free Or Die: Dead Zone
    The primitive Americans all search for sustenance in their respective hideaways. Derik’s plan to collect water from a distant spring is shattered when a motorcycle spooks his mule. Tony and Amelia want to try their hand at turkey hunting, so Tony gets a quick riflery lesson from his father-in-law and the couple takes to the forest to catch a meal. Tobias struggles to find water as he continues his 80-mile hike to his new campgrounds, and Colbert prepares to meet up with a friend from before he decided to “re-wild.”
  • Live Free Or Die: Out For Blood
    Deep in the swamp, frontiersman Colbert tries to escape the plague of mosquitos, woodsman Thorn takes to the forest to stalk an elusive turkey and nomad Tobias races to find food before the sun goes down on the desert.
