A fantastic production that is equal parts inspiring, humbling, and provoking. Combines awesome story telling with western and indigenous science that leaves one feeling full of hope for the future of the Wild. I have been moved to tears and laughter more than once. Plus such awesome adventures, I can’t wait for more!
