Filmmaker and author Robert Perkins retraces the steps of 19th century Scottish naturalist John Muir, who walked through one thousand miles of the American South in 1867. Perkins takes to the road to provide a personal assessment of how the Southern landscape has changed since Muir's time and examines some of the environmental damage in the region.
