    Default Happy People, a Year in the Tiaga

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Happy_P...r_in_the_Taiga

    This is not a U-tube clip. It it a full length documentary and a good one. It follows a family on their year long cycle of life in the Tiaga of Russia. Not a nomadic primitive tribe but a family with wife and kids stationed in a small villiage and husband out in the bush for the trapping season.

    I found this film contained more real life survival knowledge than One might absorb in a single setting and is worth owning.

    One amazing thing I found was that the trappers of the Tiaga have access to multiple firearms and gun control in Russia is not all the NRA claims it to be. In one scene the trapper is loading his boat for the trip downriver and has in one scene a .22lr, SKS, MN carbine and 12 ga O/U shotgun!

    This film belongs in everyone's library.
    If you didn't bring jerky what did I just eat?

    this is a awesome documentary. It is a must see. The traps, the longguns, cabins, birch tar, canoe, skis etc. etc. all caught my imagination.

    There is a four hour version available too.
    so the definition of a criminal is someone who breaks the law and you want me to believe that somehow more laws make less criminals?
