High on the alpine prairie of Mount Toodoggone life survives on the narrowest of margins. With treacherous terrain and wind chills of -75- C it's easy to understand why less than half a dozen types of animals live here year-round. The Sheep of Stone are one of these rare species who have adapted to their environment which allows them to survive in this extreme climate. Isolated they have evolved both physical and behavioral characteristics that make them distinct even from their closest relatives. Because of their geographic isolation these exotic animals are providing new insights into one of the fundamental forces of evolution the bond between geology and genetics. Viewers will see a world rarely documented in the remote regions of the Spatsizi Wilderness and gain understanding of the evolutionary relationship that exists between geology and genetics.
