See the beauty of the prairie through a visually-stunning journey, photographed in high-definition digital perfection, featuring the glorious Flint Hills during one of their most visual times of the year: spring. Gorgeous wildflowers, magnificent landscapes, dramatic prairie fires and tremendous thunderstorms are all part of the visual impact of the Flint Hills, showcased by magnificent aerial digital video. Long ago, 250 million acres extended their reach across Canada to Texas. Today the tallgrass prairie is almost entirely gone, claimed and farmed by settlers and early pioneers. But in the Midwest, Kansas was lucky. Due to the rocky soil that is made mostly of limestone, the prairie was spared the plow and survived. So named for the abundant residual mineral which eroded from the lower bedrock and lies near the surface, the Flint Hills are one of nature's true treasures. Today this special, delicately balanced ecosystem provides a unique fertile preserve for an amazing variety of flora and fauna and a home for many creatures from butterflies to bison. This historic program places viewers right into the life-cycle of the Flint Hills to see all the beauty and drama unfold.
