At the end of that season the family left their ‘Browntown’ homestead to move temporarily to California while the matriarch of the family, Ami Brown, underwent treatment for lung cancer. They later planned to move permanently to a new home in Colorado.

Alaskan Bush People first began after the Brown family had their home destroyed by authorities due to it being built on public land. They then visited various places in Alaska looking for somewhere suitable to build their homestead.
They eventually settled on Chichagof Island, near Hoonah. The series then followed their day-to-day lives and trials and tribulations as they went about developing “Browntown” and living the “wild” lifestyle.
The members of the Brown family are commonly known as the “Wolfpack”. There are usually two seasons a year, one starting in the spring and one starting in the fall or early winter.
