The prairie is deceiving: what at first appears to be a wide expanse of flat nothing reveals itself, with a closer look, to be a teeming ecological system full of beautiful scenery, interesting stops and tasty cuisine. All of that is enjoyed here via a look at North America's First Peoples and the settlers who came later, a jaunt through Canada's Manitoba province, and a hop across the border and into North Dakota. This journey takes in Manitoba's capital and largest city, Winnipeg, explores Riding Mountain National Park's vast wilderness, and looks at the bi-national International Peace Garden before ending with another capital, Bismarck.
