Long ago, 250 million acres extended their reach across Canada to Texas. Today, the tall grass prairie is almost entirely gone, claimed and farmed by settlers and early pioneers. But, in the Midwest, Kansas was lucky. Due to the rocky soil that is made mostly of limestone, the prairie was spared by the plow, and it survived and flourished into the visual glory that it is today.
So named for the abundant, residual mineral which eroded from the lower bedrock and lies near the surface, the Flint Hills are one of nature's true treasures. Today, this special, delicately-balanced ecosystem provides a unique and fertile preserve for an amazing variety of flora and fauna, and it offers a home to many creatures, from butterflies to bison.
For this unique project, videography was produced by Rockhouse Motion. From a studio that sits on the family farm in the prairie, first settled by ancestors over a century ago, Rockhouse Motion has created an intense, and unforgettable, emotion through their camera lens, taking viewers on a journey through the Flint Hills like never before.
This historic program places viewers right into the life-cycle of the Flint Hills, offering them a front-row-seat to see all the beauty and drama unfold.
