POWER, GREED, SEX, VIOLENCE AND THE FUR TRADE – BASED ON REAL HISTORICAL FIGURES AND EVENTS.
SET IN THE LATE 18TH CENTURY, CENTURIES BEFORE THE OIL BOOM… DECADES BEFORE THE GOLD RUSH… EVEN BEFORE THERE WAS A WEST KNOWN AS “WILD”, AMERICA WAGED WAR OVER FUR.
In an untamed wilderness where bartering for animal hides can lead to unimaginable wealth. It doesn’t matter who you are or where you’re from. Here, everyone is savage. Savageland is the real struggle of those who defined North American. It’s a gritty, awe inspiring epic adventure series charged with the primal forces of power, greed, sex and violence. Savageland centers around the adventure filled lives of William McGillivray and (Sir) Alexander Mackenzie. Driven by an insatiable desire for money, power and fame, these determined Scotsmen would become lord-like in the new colony while setting the political foundations for the continent as it is today.
