Guardians of the Glades

For people born poor and without many options like Dusty Crum, life can be hard.

But if there's a will there's a way, and he learned from his father how to make do with what they had and to make a lot from a little.

When a business opportunity came his way to hunt invasive snakes in the Everglades, he took it with both hands.

In this series Dusty and his ragtag band of hunters do battle with these slithering monsters in bug-infested, alligator-ridden swamps.

They may not have professional training or much in the way of equipment, but they make up for that with courage and determination.
