Over five hours, America's Wild Frontier tells the story of the frontier and wildlife closest to America's heart. We explore the woods that Davy Crocket once called home in The Great Valley of Appalachia, and where Wild Bill Hickok saw his last sunset in The Badlands of South Dakota. We reveal a cast of critter characters that includes everything from bears, bison and burrowing owls, to weasels, wood ducks and wild horses.
