Montana rancher Dusty Crary works to preserve pristine, neighboring wilderness, championing efforts to prevent commercial development. Kansas farmer Justin Knopf defies conventional wisdom and implements controversial new practices to combat soil degradation and erosion. And Louisiana commercial fisherman Wayne Werner partners with fisheries regulators to help ensure a future for the red snapper upon which his business depends. Based on The New York Times best-selling author Miriam Horn’s recent book of the same name, Susan Froemke and John Hoffman’s illuminating film spotlights these unlikely conservationists, stewards of the land and sea who don’t fit preconceptions of environmentalists. Willing to face hostility from within their own communities by forging unexpected alliances with longtime enemies, these individuals show a commitment to work with—rather than against—nature. Narrated by Tom Brokaw.

Language: English

“Impressive aerial shots of scenic splendors, as well as Tom Brokaw’s narration — that voice now a sort of craggy edifice in itself — tie together this episodic feature into a polished and entertaining whole.” Dennis Harvey, Variety

“An involving film that tells a more complicated story than its title would indicate… Two centuries ago, 80% of Americans worked in these kinds of jobs. Now it is 1% of the population that manages two-thirds of our land.” – Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times
