Sky Island - New Mexico's Jemez Mountains

In northern New Mexico, a range of mountains rises up from the high desert: a wild, rugged land of the Faraway Nearby. The volcanic Jemez Mountains are isolated from all other ranges — an island in the sky, surrounded by a desert sea. Sky Island profiles this enchanting landscape and our place within it.


Directed by John Grabowska. Narrated by Pulitzer Prize winner N. Scott Momaday and acclaimed actress Meryl Streep.
