Must-See Americana

Journey of August King

There are two films here, but they belong together. The first film is a treasure trove of Americana and Appalachia, with superb reenactment of the frontier. It is visually awe inspiring, an immersion in natural beauty. The second film is about the complex character of the frontiersman and the issues of human economics, law, and morality. It is grim reminder of the exploitation and cruel facts of survival that is human behavior throughout history to this day. The two films, blended together, stimulate uplifting emotions and also sobering reality. Here we have an early image that grew into the conflict over state's rights and abolition eventually leading to a war that nearly destroyed the nation. The fearsome and the wonderfully awesome are wedded here in a film that for the student of American history is not to be missed.
