A man wearing a hat stands next to his horse and looks out into the wilderness of Nevada.


“The New West and the Politics of the Environment," a special 90-minute documentary from "Earth Focus," tells the story of the new American West through the eyes of legendary Nevada Senator Harry Reid, as he forged allegiances between unlikely allies and crafted policy to grow the economy of his home state while protecting its wilderness and in the process, redefined the future of the West.
