Rapture in the splendor of the Great Plains’ ecosystems and wildlife. Photographer Michael Forsberg narrates with deep passion and insight. The companion book will allow you to linger and appreciate our regional wilderness even more.

Aside from portraying Ducks Unlimited as a conservation organization, it was excellent. Two episodes of about 1 hour each. Stunning photography that you won't see anywhere else. Beautiful vistas and aerial videography as well.

Another outstanding PBS documentary. This one follows photographer Michael Forsberg as he takes us through the intricate biosystem of the Great Plains, the threats to the land, and the wealth of diverse life forms to be found there. Essential viewing for anyone with an interest in the region, particularly these days, when so many of these places and creatures seem to be under threat by the disregard of government or business.
