Shllogo_small You may have noticed that every time you print from your computer, you are faced with a choice: Portrait or Landscape. That can represent a way of looking at the world. One or the other: The head and shoulders of the human form vs. the broad spread of the world we occupy. Or maybe not. Maybe we actually find ourselves, each of us, as portraits within landscapes. Pieces by Elizabeth Arnold, Jonathan Goldstein, The Kitchen Sisters (Davia Nelson and Nikki Silva), Chris Brookes, Kelly McEvers, Jesikah Maria Ross 1. Out in the Great Bear Rainforest, Elizabeth Arnold discovers that, though she may be ready for the "Great", and for the "Rainforest", she is not so ready for the "Bear." 2. Armed only with a tent, a pack of hot dogs, and a twelve-year old, Jonathan Goldstein confronts his fear of the woods. 3. The Kitchen Sisters' portrait of activist Mark DuBois and his dramatic effort to save a wild river in the west. 4. What is it like to be exiled from a landscape that you can see from your window? When his legs fail him, Chris Brookes finds out. 5. The story of one man's prairie, and his work to let it flourish, even after he dies. Kelly McEvers visits Bob's Prairie in Illinois. 6. Through every season, 97-year-old rancher Attilio Genasci tends to his cattle and his alpine valley in California. A portrait of a man in his landscape by Jesikah Maria Ross. Original Music for the series was composed and performed by Bill Frisell NB: ALL PROMOS INTERCHANGEABLE (even those with titles) you can pick and choose. :15 promos need "...Join host Jay Allison for Stories from the heart of the Land" tag.

Review of Stories from the Heart of the Land I - Portraits in Landscapes

A good, relaxed paced work -- maybe just a tad too slow paced. It provides an important understanding of our relationship with the land that we live in, including its soil, plants, and animals.
