Western Divide

  • Aired: 12/13/2001
  • 56:48
  • Rating: TV-G
Almost two-thirds of Idaho, Nevada and Wyoming is owned by the public, much of it managed by the federal government. This land contains untamed wealth in the form of lumber, gas, coal, minerals and other raw materials. But also, this land is an escape and provides solitude for many folks. For others, it is the very fabric of their culture.
