Not for children or sensitive viewers

"This program is not an overview of Yellowstone; rather, it is a brutally honest examination of the predator-prey relationships among the park's wildlife. The numerous hunt scenes are neither sensationalized nor censored. Sensitive viewers should be prepared to see cute baby animals killed. The theme is the dichotomy of nature's beauty vs. the animals' constant struggle to survive.
If the subject matter does not put you off, then I recommend the program. The cinematography is beautiful, and the narration is interesting. Proponents of wolf conservation will be particularly interested in this documentary because wolves are featured throughout.
No special features, language selection, or subtitles are included. I have given the DVD 3 stars (neutral) to reflect my suspicion that most viewers will either love it or hate it."
Naturalist Paul Schullery Provides Excellent Narrative

"If you are searching for a "tour guide" video of Yellowstone National Park, this is not the one. This documentary, however, is excellent at what is does, which is to present our first national park as a present-day crucible for understanding the delicate balance and inherent beauty in a large ecosystem. This is a good documentary with lucid perception."
