This DVD combines three Prairie Public historical documentary favorites: Rivers, Roads, Rails, and Air; Bonanza Farms; Fort Buford: Splendid Isolation; and Lewis and Clark Pathways.
Rivers, Roads, Rails and Air shows how transportation has changed and how North Dakota’s history has been tied to those changes.
Bonanza Farms shows how this early attempt at agri-business changed the practices of agriculture on the prairies.
Fort Buford: Splendid Isolation chronicles the rich history of the menacing sentinel that guarded an important transportation lifeline and was the site of Native American leader Sitting Bull’s surrender.
Lewis and Clark Pathways follows the Missouri River and uses the famous expedition of Lewis and Clark as a roadmap for discovering North Dakota.
