Land of the Eagle is the first television series to attempt a
comprehensive account of North America's wildlife and wild places. Land
of the Eagle turns the clock back to reveal the continent as it used to
be, hundreds of years ago, a story told by the people who lived on it,
charted it and shaped it - the Native Americans and the European
explorers and settlers. This eight-part series explores the great
diversity of the continent, revealing the bonds between human history
and natural history as it travels from the Atlantic to the Pacific.
Along the way, it traverses the rugged Canadian wilderness, the swampy
Everglades, the sweeping Great Plains, the majestic Rockies, the arid,
hostile deserts, and Alaska - the last wild frontier of America.
Together, the eight programmes reveal the way that the nature of this
'untamed' land shaped the lives and fortunes of those who ventured into
its vast interior. Through their writings and diaries, Peter Crawford's
award-winning series recreates the landscapes and wildlife of North
America at the time when the first Europeans came to this 'new world'.
