Bison Documentary on PBS

We’ll continue to take a look at the National Parks and Monuments of the Great Plains, but I wanted to make a brief, but timely, interruption to note the following film that will be airing this week on “Independent Lens” from PBS.  The film is called Facing the Storm: Story of the American Bison.  The film is by Doug Hawes-Davis and Drury Gunn Carr of High Plains Films.  It’s a very well done documentary on the one true icon of the Great Plains:  The Buffalo.

I will put the link to it below and you can decide how best you might be able to view it.  There is also a link for High Plains Films.

    Thanks for the heads-up regarding this film. It ran on Chicago public television pre-dawn today. I recorded it and have just watched it. It’s an excellent, worthwhile program.
