ALASKA: THE LAST FRONTIER 8

ALASKA: THE LAST FRONTIER 8

August poses in the excavator as he waits instruction to get the Constructor to land.

The only child of Otto and Charlotte, August left the homestead after high school and enrolled in college down in the lower 48. Upon realizing he wasn't cut out for a more conventional lifestyle, he recently returned to the homestead — the only way of life he has ever known.

Though he's barely old enough to order a beer, August is quickly coming into his own, applying his patience and wise-beyond-his-years demeanor to navigating life on the homestead.

When he's not busy working to establish his independence by carving out a place of his own on his family's homestead, August is a valuable asset not only to his parents but also to his big brother, Eivin, who is eager to teach his little brother the ways of the last frontier. He may have much to learn, but August is quickly asserting his own place on the homestead.
