15 Years in the Whitewater Valley and Beyond
Lisa is currently completing a 15-year documentary, one she feels is the most important documentaries she's recorded called, Struggling for Existence: What Nature Shared, 15 Years in the Whitewater Valley and Beyond. This documentary portrays the struggles our smallest insects to our apex predators encounter to survive. Lisa's project covers life and death, trapping and illegal trapping, poachers and illegal baiting, the story of the conservation officer impostor, hunting and illegal hunting, harassment, mating, nesting, births, siblings, departures, battles, bonds, peculiar playmates, unexpected companions, and more. This documentary contains graphic images that are not advised for young readers or anyone with a soft heart. This documentary is true nature; man versus nature, and nature versus nature. It is a record of what Lisa documented and reported to law enforcement, whether investigated or not. This is the voice of the valleys' inhabitants, the story they creatures shared with Lisa, unmeddled. Pre-order $65.00.
