Outside our concrete jungles, beyond the strip malls, and just minutes from our own backyard is another world that is thriving, fighting, and surviving. Brawny mountains, burning deserts, tangled forests, and curvaceous coasts. A grizzly bear takedown of helpless elk calves in Yellowstone. Bighorn sheep going head-to-head in battle. Giant Humboldt squid cannibalizing their kin. Mountain lion cubs hunting solo for the first time. The landscapes and wildlife of the Americas are savage, shrewd, and stunning. These are the great outdoors, our wildest frontiers—our Untamed Americas.


Untamed Americas reveals the grit and glory in the wild of North America, Central America, and South America. Each hour explores some of the greatest wildlife spectacles, delicate dances, unbelievable endurance, and against-the-odds survival in episodes dedicated to the continent’s mountains, deserts, coasts, and forests.

    Comments about Untamed Americas Blu-Ray Disc:

    I bought this for my brother and his wife who also are very outdoorsy and enjoy nature shows. We ended up watching it together and liked it so much I've ordered a copy for myself as well, so I can watch it again and again. National Geographic quality animal footage, with some rarely witnessed behaviour and stories. It was entertaining to watch and we all learned things we didn't know, sometimes about familiar animals, and sometimes animal that were totally new. A great glimpse into the natural world, and the variety of life in the Americas.

          America’s Great Plains were once a vibrant grassland ecosystem, akin to the great savannahs of Africa.

Since Lewis and Clark’s time, many of these iconic prairie creatures have all but disappeared.
