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. HISTORY follows these swampers through the most important time of their year the thirty day alligator hunting season. The swampers give us an insight to the real meaning of American spirit, the lost art of doing things the right way as they preserve a dying way of life from the encroaching modern world.
