節目介紹 Introduction

在路易斯安那最偏遠的角落坐落著全美最大的沼澤,在這裡大自然是主宰,人類只能奮力抵抗。在這裡生活的卡津人追尋300年以來最早的開拓者留下的傳統,他們就是沼澤人類。依賴自己和獨立自主的傳統讓他們成為貨真價實的美國原住民。歷史頻道將跟著這些人,一窺他們每年最重要的時節,那就是為期30天的捕鱷季。這個故事要探討的核心就是美國精神,這強調以對的方式來做事的態度已經成為一門失傳的藝術,他們試圖在這快速變遷的現代社會中,保存這即將消失的生活方式。

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
