Braving Alaska

September 2007

Braving Alaska: a documentary about families living rough in the wilds of Alaska. It's like the Wilderness Family, but real-life. Also, the doco earns extra points for finishing with a Thoreau quote:

I went into the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived.

Fraser commented:

Nice doco (shame about the scriptwriting). Ran Prieur posted some interesting reflections on the American 'mountain man' myth yesterday. With reference to Thoreau of course!

Fraser commented:

Damn it Martin Sheen, stop saying 'yuman'!
