(No. 109) Amber Waves of Grain

Rating: TV-G

"Amber Waves of Grain" focuses on some of central Montana's small-town traditions.

In this episode we drop by East Helena to take a look at one of the largest barns in the West, visit a farmer working to get his crop combined near Windham, have a gander at entries in the whimsical "What the Hay" contest between Hobson and Utica in Judith Basin, visit Glacier National Park, and watch from a safe distance when the dirt flies at a motorcycle hill-climb near Billings.
