The backbone of California’s landscape, the Sierra Nevada, provides a rich environment for diverse and unique plants and animals to thrive which supported a extensive Native American population. The geology and weather created a mineral wealth that drove immigration to the state, created magnificent scenery, but also established a barrier to transportation. Long after we are dust, the Sierra Nevada will grow, evolve, and thrive. Narrated by Carla Winter with music by Sacred Light, the film summarizes the Natural History of the mountains John Muir called The Range of Light.
