Iron & Fire

Iron & Fire will take a high-end approach to documenting American ingenuity featuring those who are actively foregoing technology and reclaiming the past. For centuries, the Ozarks - stretching from southern Missouri into northern Arkansas - has remained the most remote and sparsely populated region of the Lower 48. This is a land where the descendants of Appalachia migrated in search of a last stronghold against the encroachment of the outside world. Traditional blacksmith Daniel Casey is considered a foremost expert on the regionally specific techniques of his craft, a master in a field dominated by men twice his age. Following him and his extensive family, this series will explore the last vestiges of this unique culture that continue to survive today.
