A synopsis for Big Bend: The Wild Frontier Of Texas reads: “In a journey narrated by Thomas Haden Church (Sideways, Divorce), uncover Western dramas as told by the animals themselves.

“Showcasing the natural magic of Big Bend over the course of a year, the film searches out its secret places and wild creatures, including many species of birds, butterflies, bats, reptiles, cacti and scorpions. Big Bend is home to a greater variety of these creatures than nearly any other US National Park.”
