Editorial Reviews

America s Great Plains were once a vibrant grassland ecosystem, akin to the great savannahs of Africa. Here, a mere 200 years ago, Lewis and Clark stepped onto this fertile landscape and were awestruck by what they saw herds of bison, packs of wolves, grizzly bears, prairie dogs and more. Since Lewis and Clark s time, many of these iconic prairie creatures have all but disappeared.

Now, one of the most ambitious conservation projects in American history is underway to create a thriving three million acre wildlife reserve that will restore America s Serengeti. Filmed over 2 years in stunning high-definition, American Serengeti chronicles the massive restoration project and through CGI, will fast forward to the future when vast herds of American wildlife will roam the plains once again.

Despite some rather bad reviews I read, I went ahead & bought this & I'm very glad I did. I love the Great Plains scenery, all of the history behind the dwindling animal species - from prairie dogs to bison to antelope. I thought Tom Selleck did an excellent job at narrating this program. Very informative & after watching this - I did feel a bit of hope for the future of this preserve. It is what it is. This is an informative program about trying to re-establish a large section of the Great Plains to what they once were. If you're wanting to be entertained by Hollywood special effects, foul language, or gratuitous sex jokes - you shouldn't be watching this, let alone reviewing it!

Fascinating video documentary on the efforts of a group of folks who are trying to preserve a taste of the wild plains that the early pioneers encountered many years ago as they traveled west. It presents a reasonably balance view, perhaps at times a bit skewed, but aren't we all prejudiced on some level towards what we feel strongly about? I give them props for not being over the top with their push to preserve a piece of Americana and trying to find a balance between current land use and a desire to preserve what once was

American Seregeti documents the ambitious efforts of American Prairie Reserve to restore a huge wildlife conservation area of over three million acres in northeastern Montana to something resembling its former ecosystem. Buffalo, prairie dogs and many other species are being used to seed it with native wildlife. The film tells the story of how biologists, rangers, and local people are working together to make this happen. Very professionally photographed and narrated. See wiki entry APR entry for background info.

This is a great documentary. The filming is wonderful with great shots of wild life and scenery. It was informative about the history of the plains and the animals who lived there. It was also encouraging in it's explanation of what is being done to restore the plains to it's former state and save the species that live on the plains. I showed it do a group of senior citizens and we had a good discussion after the viewing.
