I was so happy a friend of mine recommended I check out "My Life as a Turkey" on PBS, I've decided to recommend it to you. It's the story of Joe Hutto and his experience imprinting and raising a family of wild turkeys in a forest in Florida. Not only is the story touching and entertaining, the cinematography is incredible, and the animals and landscape are beautiful.
As Joe describes his journey:
“Had I known what was in store—the difficult nature of the study and the time I was about to invest—I would have been hard pressed to justify such an intense involvement. But, fortunately, I naively allowed myself to blunder into a two-year commitment that was at once exhausting, often overwhelming, enlightening, and one of the most inspiring and satisfying experiences of my life.”
–Joe Hutto, Illumination in the Flatwoods
