Can a modern family shed their reliance on technology to take a trip back in time and survive on only the means used by settlers in the late 1800s? This is the question posed by Frontier House, a reality series that takes three families and releases them into the Montana wilderness to witness their survival instincts in action. From creating a homestead to raising livestock and making pressing decisions about their land and roles in the community, these three families will experience life just as families taking advantage of the Homestead Act did in the American West over a century ago. What lessons will the families learn from their experience? Will frontier life bring them closer together or push them apart? How will the families use their experiences in the wilderness to enhance their lives in the modern world? Explore these and many other fascinating questions as you step into the time machine with this unique reality series from PBS.
