Timothy 'Curly' Leach,
Each season of the show follows a different group of dredgers, those who search for gold in shallow waters, at the bottom of the sea or even ocean. They often collect paydirt, ground from the seabed that contains some precious ore.
Centers on the Kilcher family and their community outside Homer, Alaska. Begun by patriarch Yule Kilcher who immigrated from Europe during WWII, and currently led by his sons, Otto and Atz Kilcher (singer Jewel's father) the family have lived on their land for four generations. The show also features the homesteaders who live nearby and interact with the Kilchers.Written by
I love this program about Alaska. It is wholesome family entertainment with a real human side to it. I know Homer is close by and there is a Safeway there. However I feel that the ethos of the show is to convey how Yule Kilcher carved a livelihood as a pioneer over 50 years ago. His children and grandchildren continue that tradition.
It is my belief that we need that in this world, old family values and traditions. Our children sit glued to mobile/cell phones and tablets. I would love to take them and my grand kids to see the Kilchers in Alaska's Last Frontier.
