A visually-stunning portrait of the Flint Hills of Kansas during one of their most striking times of the year, Spring. Long ago, 170 million acres of tallgrass prairie extended its reach across Canada to Texas. Today, it is almost entirely gone, claimed and farmed by settlers and early pioneers. But Kansas was lucky. Due to the rocky soil that is made mostly of limestone, the prairie here was spared the plow and survived. 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. Join us for a unique experience of intense and unforgettable emotion seen through the camera lens. Take a Flint Hills journey like never before.
