The Legend of Mick Dodge offers a voyeuristic look into the world of this third-generation outdoorsmen, who has opted to spend his life away from civilization. Much of the entertainment comes from watching Dodge substitute whatever the forest provides and time-honored natural remedies for modern conveniences.

Dodge is worthy of the local legends that surround him, thanks to his rugged lifestyle and occasional quirky behavior. But one can't help feeling that some of what is shown here is contrived in order to make his quiet life a little more exciting for television audiences. Nonetheless, the show gives viewers a chance to see what life can be like when one chooses to commune with the natural world.
