"Mountain Men" is a reality television show that follows the lives of several men who choose to live off-grid in mountainous areas in the United States. The program first premiered in 2012 on the History Channel. As of 2015, the program entered its third season.
Each of the men featured on "Mountain Men" lives in a different part of the country. This allows viewers of the show to see various challenges faced by people living "off the grid" in the mountains in Montana, Alaska and North Carolina. Some of the perils featured on the show include mudslides, animal predators and wildfires. The first season followed the lives of three mountain men, while later seasons chronicled the lives of six men as they battled nature to carve out a living in the wild. The program is narrated by actor/director D.B. Sweeney.
