Hour long program about the intersection of people and the natural world

Shllogo_small On some corner of the vast Earth, each one of us has a place - real or remembered - to call home. In this hour we are invited onto other people's sacred ground. Teresa Goff follows a trail of grease into the history of the Namgis Nation; Jeff Rice braves three-digit temperatures to find Charles Bowden's home in the Sonoran Desert; and Sandy Tolan treads lightly at the monastic home of Barry Lopez. Also: in a story from the Kitchen Sisters, we meet two river guides who fell for Arizona's Glen Canyon in the years before it was dammed - and learn what happens once the place you love is gone. Pieces by Sandy Tolan, Teresa Goff, Jeff Rice, the Kitchen Sisters (Davia Nelson and Nikki Silva). 1. Writer Barry Lopez has traveled the world. We visit his homeground in Oregon, where he writes, still using an IBM Selectric. 2. The Grease Trails, a centuries-old network of paths through Northwestern Canada, are the cultural arteries of First Nations peoples. Once on the brink of vanishing, Teresa Goff finds that the trails are being resurrected by a new generation. 3. The Sonoran desert, with its three-digit temperatures and miles between water, is an unlikely place to sustain life. But for Charles Bowden it is an oasis. 4. A portrait of pioneering river activists Ken Sleight and Katie Lee, which explores their dramatic efforts to save wild rivers, the rise of the environmental movement and the power of individuals to make a difference.
