NATURE | River of No Return | An Ancient Game | PBS

Duration: 01:19
Program: Nature #2911
Broadcast Date: Apr. 9, 2012

After reaching Chamberlain Basin, Isaac and Bjornen come across white-tailed deer and their first glimpse of wolves in almost two months. The wolves and deer pay no attention. They're already intent on an ancient game. Central Idaho's Frank Church -- River of No Return Wilderness is the largest contiguous wilderness area in the lower 48 States. Endless rugged mountains, wild rivers, forests and deep canyons define this land — home to numerous species of wildlife, including wolves, who have just returned after 50 years of near absence. A young couple, Isaac and Bjornen Babcock, chose this wilderness for their year-long honeymoon. But what begins as a romantic adventure becomes something much greater for the couple — and a tale of hope and celebration for every life trying to make it in the unforgiving heart of the wilderness. "River of No Return" premieres on PBS Wednesday, April 18, 2012 at 8pm and is part of the 30th season of the Peabody and Emmy award-winning series produced by Thirteen in association with WNET.ORG for PBS.
