Take an extraordinary journey through North America and meet the incredible array of exotic wildlife that lives in our backyard. Through epic cinematography and compelling storytelling, we experience their struggle for survival in this land of extremes.

- No Place to Hide
A world of extreme storms and unpredictable blizzards, this land tests all those who set foot on it. From bunker building prairie dogs to the fastest land animals on the continent, the fight to survive shapes all who dare call this place home.

- Learn Young or Die
In the upper reaches of this vast continent, survival is a daily battle. From avalanche-dodging grizzlies to head-bashing big horn sheep, from diving bears to cunning coyotes, we witness the extremes and the wonders of North America’s mountains and forests.

- Savage Edge
The water’s edge is America’s final frontier, where human civilization and untamable wilderness collide. Witness the explosive collisions that define the continent’s coasts, including a massive shark migration off of Miami's crowded beaches.

- Outlaws and Skeletons
The desert is more alive than you ever imagined. Human and animals alike endure at the mercy of the elements. From Death Valley to the deserts of Mexico, creatures battle for survival with astounding adaptations.

- Revealed
To make 'North America', film crews crisscrossed this vast continent for three years. With over 2,800 days in the field covering 8 countries and 29 U.S. states, this series reveals the full wonders of the North American continent as never before.

- Top 10
The viewers cast 35,000 votes to answer the question, “What is the top North America Destination?” In this special episode, we count down the results, revealing some surprises along the way.

Notes:
For many of us, North America is our home. We live in this extraordinary continent each and every day, but have we ever truly experienced first-hand the wide scope of incredible dangers challenging our diverse and tenacious continent?

If you think you know North America, you can think again. In this unforgettable television event, Discovery Channel turns the lens toward its homeland and captures a land where life collides with hostile, untamed wilderness in the most diverse, deadly environment on Earth.

North America's first five episodes reveal the intimate stories of animals struggling to survive in unforgiving weather and rugged terrain. Never-before-seen sequences range from the elusive desert jaguar in Mexico to daring grizzly bears diving in more than 20 feet of water to grab salmon in Alaska.

The 'Revealed' episode chronicles North America's production team and the challenges they faced including battling the destructive Hurricane Irene and other natural disasters, all while attempting to capture the most majestic animals in the continent.

The final episode reveals what online voters chose as the number one, natural North American destination via Discovery's "My North America" Facebook page.
