Home Waters
Program Description

American writer and naturalist Robert Perkins paddles a birch bark canoe down the Connecticut River, from the U.S.-Canadian border to Long Island Sound. Along the way, Perkins encounters people with interesting tales to tell, including a hunter who killed a gigantic black bear, off-duty scientists who are monitoring water quality, a man who's raising two abandoned bear cubs and a teacher who's building authentic Native-American canoes.
