Filmmaker Guy Clarkson completes his mountain odyssey with a search for solutions. He discovers an optimism born of a profound understanding of what makes Nature tick. He finds business, government, and local residents joining forces to ensure that the grizzly, the wolf and the caribou remain at home on their range. He catches up with a broad cross-section of mountain people who are getting political to push their vision of a Once and Future Wild. Clarkson investigates a coalition of passionate individuals and organizations known as 'Y2Y'--the Yellowstone to Yukon Conservation Initiative. Their aim--to connect wildlife corridors through half a million square miles, with the full participation of stakeholders in industry. From visits with old-time mountain man Andy Russell, to a Kaska-Dene youngster heading out on his first moose hunt, Clarkson takes heart in the wisdom of those who know best what it means to live in harmony with Nature.
