PBS39 proudly presents another documentary, made possible by viewers like you...and one that takes you on a deep dive into one of the fabled natural treasures of our state: The Wabash River.
At one time the lands around the Wabash were America's Western frontier, a world as wild as it was beautiful.
Travel along the Wabash river and discover the inspiring stories of the people who lived along side it—from Tecumseh’s attempt to form a pan-Indian coalition to the experimental societies of New Harmony, and many destinations in between.
Along the Wabash combines historical first-hand accounts, poetry, music and narration with fictionalized scenes and archival visuals, immersing the viewer in the experience of the river as a source of history, imagination, and beauty. Produced by Indiana PBS station WTIU, this special presentation makes its debut on PBS39 on Tuesday, August 23 at 8:00pm on channel 39.1. We invite you and your family to take a journey back in time with us and enjoy this story that hold relevance all hoosiers, today and beyond.
