Missouri Broadcasters Association nomination for 'The Landscapes of Henry Rowe Schoolcraft'

Mar 4, 2017

In early 2016, KBIA's Trevor Harris produced a special series, The Landscapes of Henry Rowe Schoolcraft.' The series looked at the processes that have altered Missouri's landscapes in the nearly 200 years since 25-year-old Schoolcraft walked 900 miles over 90 days in search of adventure and lead mining opportunities.
