HISTORY(R) presents NO MAN'S LAND, a new series that transports viewers into the lives of those who thrive and survive in the barren landscape that marks the end of civilization: the great American desert. The series premieres Sunday, March 9 at 10PM ET/PT.
It takes a special breed to make the desert their home, but these men brave the crippling heat, stealthy predators and volatile weather - in order to live on their own terms. In one of the most hostile environments on Earth, danger is a way of life, but the desert also offers freedom, independence and escape from the work-a-day world.
NO MAN'S LAND follows five hardcore men who live off the land and prove that survival here requires ingenuity, grit and self-reliance.
