Synopsis

In 1968, when Don Schueler and Willie Brown bought eighty acres in Mississippi, all they could afford was a piece of "least worst land." Moonshiners and poachers tried to scare them off, but Don and Willie stuck it out, restoring "The Place," bringing back the wildlife and plant life, until they had created a handmade wilderness containing every ecosystem found in the region.
