Eugene Runcus and Spencer Boljack are living a hardscrabble life in Cold Mountain, N.C. This series -- a hillbilly ``MacGyver'' of sorts -- follows the mountain brothers as they carry on a deep-rooted tradition of their forebears by surviving off what is provided by their rugged Appalachia surroundings. The colorful characters are experts at getting by with little and making do with less, and that means everything from making moonshine to trade for cold medicine, to rigging a homemade pontoon boat and diving gear to retrieve valuable submerged timber. Runcas and Boljack may have little money, but ``Hillbilly Blood'' shows they are rich in ingenuity and homegrown brilliance.
