Ami Brown from "Alaskan Bush People" stars in the Discovery Channel reality docu-series.

Ami Brown is married to Billy Brown with whom she has seven children. They live in the deepest wilderness of the bush of Alaska, where their life of adventure has led them to places of which few have even dreamed. From the open sea and far away ports, to the high mountain gold fields in some of the most remote places left on Earth, they are pioneers in a modern world. Both are true adventurers, and they are always, with every step and new discovery, standing side by side.

Their home, nestled at the head of a high mountain valley surrounded by the snow capped peaks of Alaska's rugged mountains, is one of their great loves. Ami takes pride in her outdoor garden, where she grows vegetables, and her greenhouse attached to the kitchen, where she grows herbs and flowers. In their area of the bush Ami is known as an authority on what to grow, as well as when and how.

Her expertise extends further than her garden. Homeschooling is another subject in which Ami is extremely knowledgeable. Over the years she has compiled enough of the "what works, what doesn't work" material to be collated into a book she is hoping to complete soon.

For over ten years Ami has been testing, measuring and perfecting her longest project to date: her cookbook, "Put Something Wild on Your Plate," which will be released soon.

Most of the year their time is spent in their second home, their boat, where the galley puts off the smell of Ami's fresh dried herbs hanging over the stove. When they're aboard their boat Ami exchanges her gardening-and-cooking skill for charts and maps. From when Ami first read a tide book to guide them through their first harbor almost thirty years ago, up until the present, she has displayed a knack and natural understanding of navigation. Onboard she is the undisputed navigator.

The art and history of navigation is a subject she has studied extensively. While relaxing, she likes to read about celestial navigation or modern charts comparison to the seasonal shifts of the stars. Her personality seems to be personified by her answer when asked what place would she most like to see: "I find my happiness in the journey. The destination is only another starting point."
