Happy People: A Year In The Taiga

Zapping along the channels,  I found Happy People: A Year In The Taiga based on a four hour documentary by Dmitry Vasyukov.  Those people can be very impressive,  certainly as in a different mindset the documentary could be called a year in hell.  It also brings back memories of magic winter holidays I spent in the woods of the Vosges and the Jura on skis.

On a woodworking level it is also very interesting as it shows that the way of the axe is still  alive ... axes and chainsaws... axes, chainsaws and thousand trees to choose from.  I missed the part about wooden hut building and probably also about making boats,  but for making skis and traps an axe is probably enough.
