A float down the Upper Missouri River in eastern Montana reveals a spectacular, remote, and unspoiled prairie landscape, whose preservation is the work of the American Prairie Reserve. The organization’s mission is to create the largest nature reserve in the continental U.S., and this film serves the same purpose — showing the audience why this place matters. For boatbuilder Jason Cajune, the river trip carries on a family tradition; he grew up on drift boats in Glacier National Park, operated by his parents. As a boatbuilder, Cajune says, “I’m really just sort of a caretaker of an idea that came before,” a succinct definition of conservation itself.
