The Film: "Ranchers, Farmers, Fisherman" Trailer

Miriam Horn wrote the book, "Ranchers, Farmers, Fisherman; Conservation Heroes of the American Heartland" and this is the film that resulted from her book. These people and families, she says, are unsung heroes. They are conservationists who don't fit the preconceptions of environmentalists.

Too many media articles take on a "what's wrong" with agriculture tone. Generalizations never tell the whole story. There are a vast variety of land stewards farming the land who are truly unsung heroes. Kudos to Horn for telling this seldom told story, and for the approach of focusing on the positive.
