"From Crockett to Boone, we'll tell the bold stories of these adventurous trailblazers who explored the uncharted wilderness and became the icons we know today."

"Frontiersmen" is produced for HISTORY by Appian Way Productions and Stephen David Entertainment. Michael Hampton and Phillip Watson are executive producers for Appian Way Productions.
