Minnesota: A History of the Land; The Northern Forest DVD

$ 19.95

The Northern Forest is the fifth episode of the Emmy award-winning series, Minnesota: A History of the Land

With its majestic pines, glittering lakes, and rich human history, the northern forest is central to many Minnesotans' sense of place. But at the turn of the 20th century, the landscape lay in ruins; decades of unchecked logging had been followed by catastrophic fires. This episode chronicles efforts to understand and restore this important landscape just as a new threat looms.

Original soundtrack by Peter Ostroushko.
