來到旅程的第二段,Simon進入美國,在蒙大拿州的廣闊草原上,體驗牛仔曠野放牧的滋味,深入了解農牧業的衰落。接着他來到美國草原保護區,這項野化計劃重新引入包括美洲野牛在內的瀕臨滅絶物種,希望恢復土地的自然狀態。

旅程沿着洛磯山脈向下進發,到達科羅拉多州。Simon以雙城作對照,見證美國小鎮的今昔:紐克拉城隨着舊產業沒落而日見蕭條;對比下花園城卻掌握大麻合法化的契機,收入飊升。這段旅程的終站是監獄之城卡農,由共11座監獄孕育的龐大產業,囚犯既要投入數以億美元計的勞動力,亦要為他日重獲自由的生活作好準備。

Simon Reeve continues his journey through the Americas. In this second leg Simon is in the United States travelling down the Rocky Mountains from Montana to Colorado. In wide open prairies of Montana, the cowboy way of life under threat from a long term decline in the rural economy but Simon meets a former Silicon Valley executive who has envisaged a new future for the land. The hugely ambitious American Prairie Reserve is attempting to turn 3 million acres of former ranches, farms and public lands into a protected habitat for America’s wildlife, reintroducing iconic species long extinct including the North American Bison. It’s a move being welcomed by native American groups still living under the shadow of historical injustice. Travelling south Simon explores small town America, which in recent years has witnessed a steady decline as big employers move away and people head to the cities for work. But one small town is bucking that trend - by embracing the legal cannabis industry and using the taxation raised to fund lavish local facilities. In a country with the highest incarceration rate in the world, Simon’s final destination on this leg of the journey is a Colorado town that depends almost entirely on eleven different prisons. Simon witnesses how inmates are put to work for the State, and how virtual reality is being used to prepare long term prisoners for life on the outside.

Simon繼續美洲之旅,去到風景怡人的美國西岸,探索有「黃金之州」稱號的加州。他由北部的紅杉之鄉開始,爬上一棵76米高的巨樹,了解這種古老巨木的複製工程,以對應氣候變化。由於連年旱災,加州野火可謂一觸即發,Simon加入了當地的精英消防部隊,防止災害發生。

旅程來到美麗的太平洋西岸,Simon跟隨義務醫務人員走進洛杉磯大街小巷,見識風光背後貧富懸殊的問題。其後他南下向內華達山脈進發,與環保組織加州保育部隊會合,與一群有前科的年輕人一起工作,保護加州的山林。最後Simon來到接近墨西哥邊境一個遺世社區,為第三段旅程作結。

Simon Reeve continues his journey through the Americas. In this third leg of the journey Simon travels down the length of California. In northern California he explores the land of the giant redwoods, where he learns that only a fraction of old growth forest survives. Climbing 250 feet into the canopy of a giant redwood, Simon joins a team of arborists who are cloning the world’s biggest and most successful trees in an attempt to replant the forests that they hope can help to tackle climate change. California has recently suffered from severe droughts that have helped to create the ideal conditions for wildfires. After visiting the devastating aftermath of the fire that destroyed the town of Paradise, Simon joins the elite fire fighters who are working 24/7 to prevent a similar catastrophe happening again. Travelling south, Simon arrives on the beautiful west coast where most Californians live. But behind the glamorous Hollywood image, Simon soon discovers LA’s dark underbelly when he joins street medics who provide healthcare to the city’s 45,000 homeless. In the spectacular Sierra Nevada mountains, Simon lends a helping hand to the California Conservation Corps, a group that traces its origins to the 1930s New Deal. He works alongside young people who have struggled with drug addiction, mental health problems and homelessness, who have found purpose and employment in protecting California’s threatened environment.
Simon ends the third leg of his journey close to the Mexican border, where the man-made Salton Sea is now drying up, and a once fashionable resort has fallen on bad times. In scorching desert temperatures some hardy Americans have still found a place to live off grid here, scaping the rat race and the huge costs and challenges of living in the wealthiest state in the US.

  • 北美極地

    Simon Reeve展開野心之旅,他將會由北至南,征服8000公里路程,探索佔全球陸地面積逾四分一的美洲大陸。旅程從北美阿拉斯加展開序幕。在迪納利國家公園的巨大冰川上,Simon親睹全球氣候變化對這片極北之地的殘酷影響。接着他前往北極國家野生動物保護區,了解極具爭議的石油開採計劃。

    Simon東行至加拿大。在亞伯達省,油砂產業雖帶來財富,卻同時對社區及原住民造成打擊,令人不禁慨嘆這個號稱環保國家的偽善。在最後一站溫哥華,他走上街頭,見證困擾這個富裕城市、以至整個北美的毒品危機。

    Simon Reeve begins his most ambitious journey yet, travelling the entire length of the Americas, North to South. In this first leg of his epic journey, Simon travels from the frozen beauty of Alaska down through Canada to Vancouver and the border with the United States. Landing on a huge glacier in Alaska’s Denali National Park, Simon witnesses firsthand the brutal impact of global climate change in the remote north of the planet – ice is receding here at an alarming rate. Hunting caribou with native Americans he also hears both sides of the debate about President Trump’s plans to open the Arctic National Wilderness Reserve to oil drilling. Canada has a much greener reputation than its powerful neighbour, as Simon learns in the Yukon while sharing a bizarre cocktail containing a frozen human toe with an off-grid character called Caveman Bill. But Canada has many of its own problems: in the wealthy hipster paradise of Vancouver Simon meets the people saving lives in the midst of a brutal opioid addiction crisis that has cost so many lives across the North American continent.
