Editorial Reviews

Follow nature photographer Michael Forsberg as he examines the remaining wildness in the Great Plains of North America. Featuring stunning imagery, the program is based on Forsberg's book of the same name. Less than 200 years ago, the Great Plains was one of the greatest grassland ecosystems on Earth, stretching nearly a million square miles down the heart of the continent. The prairie was a place of constant motion, shaped by an unforgiving cycle of the seasons. Huge numbers of bison, elk, pronghorn, deer, prairie dogs, prairie wolves and even grizzlies were common. There were massive migrations of birds and fish. But as America grew, and the land was settled and tamed, the wildness began disappearing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent! November 20, 2013
Verified Purchase
I saw this on my local PBS station and enjoyed it so much that I instantly placed it on hold at the library and then bought a copy! Well done with outstanding photography and content. Very informative and enjoyable and well worth watching for anyone. An amazing area of the country that receives too little attention and, after watching this documentary, you will understand why.

4.0 out of 5 stars Worthwhile for Everyone October 25, 2013
Verified Purchase
I like this for a multitude of reasons. These include my impression that it presents worthwhile material to the outdoorsperson, the sportsperson, and the conservationist. Doing that, it exposes all to the varied problems, approaches, and solution results around the concern for the ecology of the Great Plains environment. It helped me understand and, in many cases, agree with the tenets of groups other than the ones I normally associate my self and my beliefs with. Good programs and well worth the time and $ investment.
