Prior to Euro American settlement in the 1820s, one of the major landscape features of North America was 240 million acres of tall grass prairie, but between 1830 and 1900 the prairie was steadily transformed to farmland. This change brought about an enormous social change for Native Americans. The film creates a powerful and moving viewing experience about the natural and cultural history of America. Loss of prairie and fragmentation is a loss of many species, plant, animal, and human. (57 minutes)
