DESCRIPTION

In Filthy Riches, travel across America to find industrious and ingenious people who prove they're not afraid to roll up their sleeves and get their hands dirty.

Whether catching eels on the Delaware River, hunting ginseng in Appalachia, digging for bloodworms in the mudflats of Maine, harvesting wood burls in the west, or scouring forests for edible mushrooms, one thing is constant: these mavericks must rely on their own strength and determination to forge a living.
