節目介紹 Introduction

在路易斯安那州最遠的角落有著美國最大的沼澤地,這是一個隱藏的世界,一個自然統治、人類反擊的世界。在這樣令人生畏環境中生存的卡津人遵循著三百年前傳承下來的傳統。而這些傳統由最早的拓荒者,即沼澤人類創造。沼澤人類自力更生、獨立無依,是真正的初代美國人。歷史頻道跟隨沼澤人類一起,參與一年中最重要的盛事——30天的鱷魚狩獵季。本質上,這是一個有關美國精神的故事,因為美國精神的核心就是以正確的方式做正確的事,以及對保護瀕臨死亡的生活方式不受現代世界侵擾的强烈願望。

In the farthest corner of Louisiana lies the nation's largest swamp - a hidden world where nature rules... and man fights back. The Cajuns that live in this forbidding environment follow traditions dating back three hundred years, to the earliest pioneers. They are SWAMP PEOPLE, inheritors of a tradition of self reliance and fierce independence that makes them true American originals. HISTORY follows these swampers through the most important time of their year - the thirty day alligator hunting season. At its core, this is a story of the American spirit - the lost art of doing things the right way and the fierce desire to preserve a dying way of life from the encroaching modern world.
