Great Plains: America's Lingering Wild

We Live With The Land

Season 1, Episode 2 of 2

This two-part documentary, based on the book of the same name by Nebraska photographer Michael Forsberg, examines the remaining "wildness" in the states that compose the Great Plains. The program captures the places and creatures that survive after 150 years of settlement, as well as the people who care for and preserve this fragile ecosystem. Featuring brilliant and stunning imagery, and based on Forsberg's book of the same name, Great Plains showcases the heart of our continent; from the stunning beauty and challenging weather of a canoe trip on the Montana's Upper Missouri Breaks National Monument, to South Dakota rancher Dan O'Brien's partnership with tribal groups to slaughter and market grass-fed bison, to Colorado rancher Duke Phillips' use of cattle grazing as a habitat conservation tool.
