Bear: Solomon Isaiah Freedom Brown
Birdy: Amora Jean Snowbird Brown
Rain: Merry Christmas Katherine Raindrop Brown
8. Storybook Life
Billy Brown wrote a novel called "One Wave At A Time," and some fans wonder if that's what the entire series is based around. There are many similarities between his life and the book. Of course, writing can be based off of personal experiences, but it's hard not to see the extreme parallels between the Brown family and the story in "One Wave At A Time."
9. Hotel Living
Though the family is filmed in their secluded house most of the time, rumor has it that's not always where they stay. Residents of Hoonah, Alaska say they've seen the family staying at a local hotel called the Icy Strait Lodge.
10. Life of Tragedy
Billy admits to being born into a lavish life, but it didn't last long.
"I was given new boats and cars for my birthdays. I was truly the luckiest kid in town…I had it all— money, clothes, big ticket toys, and a loving family too," he said.
However, in 1969, a freak plane crash killed Billy's parents and his older sister. Billy was sent into a depression and ultimately found himself homeless. That's when he decided to live off the grid.
