Return to the Lower States
Billy took the family to the lower 48 states, finding a place for them in Seattle. He started writing stories about his life and recording them on CDs. He published his memoir “One Wave at A Time”, which soon brought him popularity within the US. Soon a second book followed, entitled “Teacher of the Old Code”, further increasing his popularity. The first book meantime brought him to the attention of the Discovery Channel, and finally find a home for the family in remote Alaska.
“Alaskan Bush People”
Once the producers from the Discovery Channel heart Billy’s story, they offered him and his family a reality TV show, that would follow the family’s daily activities in Alaska. Billy accepted the offer, and the Brown family headed north once again. First, they moved from one place to another, building shelters against the harsh winters, finally settling in Hoonah, on Chichagof Island. Launched in 2014, the TV show “Alaskan Bush People” has recently finished its seventh season, and is popular with over 2.3 million viewers on average per episode.
