Discovery’s Rancher, Farmer, Fisherman is now available on demand and on Discovery Go. Watch it.

Normally, I would insist you see Rancher, Farmer, Fisherman via my Editor’s Note. However, a large body of research has proven that page to be the least popular in most magazines. Thus, I am shifting my advocacy to FrontGate.

An official selection of the 2017 Sundance Film Festival, Discovery’s Rancher, Farmer, Fisherman is completely captivating, especially for those of us with ties to the land. No doubt part of this comes from Bob Richman’s superb cinematography of Montana’s Rocky Mountain Front, the Great Plains, and the Gulf of Mexico. Of course, hearing Tom Brokaw’s narration packs a punch as well. You know the project is a good one if Tom is involved.

Filmmakers Susan Froemke and John Hoffmann bring to life Miriam Horn’s book of the same name by keying in on the honest voices of hard-working Americans committed to preserving the landscapes that sustain their livelihoods.

Dusty Crary (pictured above with son Carson) sets the tone in the opening vignette. Dusty’s openness about his motivations is a terrific example of the film’s honesty:

“This isn’t guaranteed to stay this way. I look at Carson and think, ‘Man, if there’s something I can do that will allow him to at least enjoy some of these things that I’ve been able to, I wouldn’t be much of a man if I didn’t feel some obligation to keep that intact for everybody.’”

It’s that good.
