This journey back in time goes deep into Louisiana's million-acre Atchafalaya Swamp for an adventure with writer Gwen Roland, who 30 years earlier built a houseboat by hand and lived as her forebears had generations earlier. Roland's heritage provides an unusual backdrop for a universal story of self-discovery and the embrace of youthful idealism and a simpler life. The program features images by National Geographic photographer C.C. Lockwood.

Two Baby Boomers find Eden until...

Comments about PBS Atchafalaya Houseboat DVD:

The cinematography is simply stunning, as are Gwen Roland and Calvin. Ms. Roland's narration reveals their bond for each other and the idyllic existence they created living off the land in a Garden of Eden; But, her bond to Calvin is broken by the temptations of life, another man. It is a bittersweet love story; But, worth the journey.

Comments about PBS Atchafalaya Houseboat DVD:

What a story! I was introduced to a world I never knew existed. I would recommend this autobiography, to all who have an appreciation for, true nature and living off the land. This way of life is so inspiring, and has me appreciating, the beauty of what God has supplied for our survival! This is a must see!
