America’s forgotten border: Porter Fox travels the 4,000 mile northern border

Pres. Donald Trump has been stoking fear about security on the southern border ever since his 2016 campaign, with talk of marauding criminals, rapists, and implementing a policy of tearing children from their families. But little is said about our longest border – the one with Canada. Author and travel writer Porter Fox spent three years traveling the border from Maine to Washington by canoe, freighter, car and foot. Along the way he stops at the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation to chronicle resistance to an oil pipeline, urchin draggers & freighter captains. His tells this story in his fascinating new book, Northland: A 4000 Mile Journey Along America’s Forgotten Border. (August 1, 2018 broadcast)
