The Brown family have thrilled TV viewers through eight series of Discovery’s Alaskan Bush People as they’ve battled to stay alive in the wilderness. During that time, they’ve had some lows, such as mom Ami’s cancer of the lung, and some highs, too. But some disturbing secrets have been revealed about the Browns, and questions have been asked about their lives in the bush.
The show began in 2014, first shot close to the city of Hoonah and on Chicagof Island in Alaska and in later years in Okanogan, Washington. It follows Texan native Billy Brown and his family as they make their lives in the wilderness. And it’s quite a family – along with Billy and Ami come seven children, five of them boys.
