Alaska: The Last Frontier
Tonight the Discovery Channel's season premier of Alaska: The Last Frontier will air at 9/8c.
Yule Kilcher (Jewel's grandfather) fled Switzerland at a time when Hitler's grasp on
civilization threatened Eastern Europe's way of life. Convinced that the
end of the world was near, he came to America, hitchhiked through the
lower 48 and up through British Columbia, then hiked across the Alaskan
glaciers by foot. Eventually he found the piece of land where the family
still lives today.
Yule moved his family to the woods of Southern Alaska where they
lived off of the resources the land could provide. Terrified by the
uncertainty of the future of humanity, he taught himself and his family
to hunt, fish, garden, gather and farm.
Today, the family still lives on that very homestead and lives by those ideals and fears.
The series theme song is sung by Jewel's father, Atz, and features Jewel as well. Be sure to tune in and check it out online HERE. It will soon be on iTunes and we will post to let all the EDAs know when they can purchase.
