Eustace Conway is an American naturalist. He is been the part of the American reality TV series of History channel Mountain Men. Conway is very open about many aspects of his life and love life is not one of them. He has been secretive about his romantic relationship.
For a long time, he is single. It does not seem like he has a spouse. Even if he was married he is not with his partner any longer. Eustace has not spoken anything on the subject. He was the subject of the book The Last American Man by Elizabeth Gilbert. The 2002 book touched upon Eustace’s relationship history based on interviews with Eustace himself, as well as some of the women with which he was romantically linked.
He said a woman that he hopes she could bear 13 children for him. He said,
“One hundred years ago a woman wouldn’t have been scared by that idea.”
Writer Elizabeth said,
“Women that were once strong and independent turned into submissive cheerleaders when paired with Conway, giving up much of their own identities to support his vision of Turtle Island,”
“They were often ignored, held to impossible standards and harshly judged, yet many of the women reflect on the love they still have for Conway and the romantic notion that things may have or should have worked out differently.”

Eustace’s early life
Eustace was born in a legacy of teaching as his parents and grandparents were educators. His grandfather Chief Johnson founded Camp Sequoyah in 1924 and became one of the fathers of American camping, a great American. When he was 17 years old, he moved outside to live in an Indian tipi, which was his only home for 17 winters.
Also, for many years he wore only homemade buckskin clothes and made and gathered his implements. At the age of 18, he canoed 1,000 miles on the Mississippi River.
Similarly, he has backpacked over 5,000 miles of breathtaking wilderness trails in North America, Central America, Australia, New Zealand, and Europe from sandy deserts to lush jungles.
