A Simple Life in the Appalachian Mountains
A rare opportunity to go deep into the woods in Appalachia to visit with some mountain dwelling folk. Two brothers, Gene and Hansel, born in the woods in a small cabin have basically very little contact with the modern world. They live alone and are completely self-sufficient and lack for nothing. They possess an aura of contentment and dignity that belies what we would imagine or suppose about persons living this lifestyle.
The two brothers seemed more than happy to share their life experiences and knowledge and seemed oblivious to the camera. It was truly enlightening and inspiring to be in the company of people completely unaffected by everything that the modern world represents. Incidentally, the sleds being discussed and shown in the video are the same type of sleds that the brothers will hitch to their mule and drag through the woods and then onto the nearby village where they can get supplies.
