Since it debuted in 2012, the reality series Mountain Men has followed a set of survivalists who live all around the United States. The stars of the History Channel series largely live off-the-grid, and they do everything from selling fur, to foraging for food, to warding off predators in order to survive and to keep themselves and their families safe.

Because the series does feature people from different regions who use their own individual methods to live off the land, a narrator is there for each and every episode to guide the viewers.

Though the Mountain Men cast has changed over the years, the narrator has been the same the entire time.
