Rocky Mountain Survival Expert On Staying Alive The Way Early Humans Did

February 22, 2016

Imagine getting dropped into the African wilderness with nothing but the clothes on your back. That’s what survival experts Cat Bigney and Bill Schindler did for the National Geographic Channel for a new show called “The Great Human Race.” 

The show follows Bigney and Schindler as they travel through history along migration routes that eventually brought humans from Africa to North America. The two lived like our ancestors did millions of years ago. Bigney says growing up in the Rocky Mountain West helped prepare her for this.  She spoke with Colorado Matters host Ryan Warner.
