Winter is coming to the Raney homestead.

The struggles do not stop there. The family is also faced with a crisis when family patriarch Marty Raney suffers a fall, leaving his children Misty, Matt and Melanee to take on additional responsibilities.

For the first time in decades, the entire Raney family must juggle homesteading challenges with the old family tradition of adventure in the Alaskan wilderness that brought Marty to the last frontier in the first place. Can Marty and the family instill that same spirit of adventure and enthusiasm in the next generation?

An emotional Misty and Maciah have their backs turned to the entire Raney crew while they wait for a surprise.
