Heimo Korth – Biography and Age

It was on April 17, 1955 that Heimo Korth was born in the United States to Irene Korth and Erich Korth. Hailing from Wisconsin, the godfather of the last frontier has managed to keep everything about his life and past away from the public eye. Therefore, little is known about his childhood, upbringing, and family members.

However, it has been stated that while he was growing up, he had a very terrible relationship with his father who abused him as a child. Because of this, the two reportedly had a toxic and antagonistic relationship that forced Heimo to leave his home and everything else to come and settle and settle on his own.

Before leaving Wisconsin for Alaska and the life of an outdoorsman, Heimo was a welder at his old home before he left and left. When he left, he was in his late teens to early twenties. Since becoming a mountain man, he has never taken a break to look back on his career or even to return home as he has built his own life and family.

In 2004, a writer who is also Heimo’s cousin wrote and published a book called The Last Frontier Player: Heimo Korth and His Family, Alone in the Arctic Wilderness of Alaska. The book immediately brought attention to one of the very few people living in the extreme conditions of the Arctic wilderness, and so for the first time there was interest in Heimo and his lifestyle.

Living along the Coleen River in the southern Brooks Range, Heimo and his family are among the few people allowed to stay in the National Arctic Wildlife Refuge as permanent residents. It leads an independent life, hunting and fishing to support itself. In the summer he worked at Fort Yukon.

Much later, after James Campbell’s book was published in 2009, a documentary was produced by VBS.tv in 2009, depicting the life of Heimo Korth. The documentary, Surviving Alone in Alaska, was not the first to feature it. Back in 1993, he was on the National Geographic documentary, Braving Alaska

From 2011 to 2012, Korth was on another documentary Flying Wild Alaska. Nevertheless, it was until 2015 that he got the fame he never sought with the release of the Discovery Channel documentary series. The last Alaskans. The series that is still ongoing examines the lives of the various families living in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge in Alaska.

Family – wife and daughters

After leaving home, Heimo Korth met a woman named Edna Korth in the village of St. Lawrence Island, Alaska, where he went to learn to be a hunter. Immediately he saw the Siberian Yupik Eskimo woman, he fell in love with her and then he married her.

For more than three decades, the two men still live in the extreme condition that has become their life.

Their union produced three children, Coleen, Rhonda and Krin. There is also Millie who was adopted by Heimo. She is Edna’s daughter from a relationship she had before meeting her husband.

The history shared between Heimo Korth and EdnaKorth has not been all good. In 1984, they witnessed the tragedy of losing their first daughter, Coleen, then two years old. She died in a canoeing accident, but her body was never found. Following this tragic event, they decided to raise their other children away from nature. Now that all the girls have grown up, the girls do not stay with their parents, although they do visit them.
