The heart-warming and heart-breaking story of a family of loons and the lake they have claimed as their own.
This initimate portrait is a journey through four seasons in the life of these majestic birds whose haunting cry, for almost 20 million years, has been the very voice of the wilderness.
A multiple award-winning film, four years in the making, Echoes of the North weaves together the reality of life in the wild for the loon, or great northern diver, the remarkable science of their unique behavior, native myths and legends about them, and the tender balance of the spectacular wilder¬ness in which they survive.
For many, the loon’s freedom and independence symbolize the true spirit of the north woods.
