Borders and who we are

northlandWe spend a lot of time looking at the southern border of the United States these days, but there is much to learn looking in the other direction as well.  Northland does this, following the U.S.- Canada border from the east to the west, traveling by boat, car and foot, and meeting folks of all kinds of backgrounds and opinions along the way.  The history of the border is also fascinating, full of twists and turns and war and quirky personalities.

It’s a fascinating trip to follow, and well worth the 4,000 miles.
