Pocket Desert is an excellent video about the conflict between development and wildlife. Every outlaw needs an enemy, and for a young girl growing up on a ranch in the last corner of the Canadian wild west, the rattlesnake takes center stage as the perfect demon for her childhood imagination.

As settlers' dreams of creating an agricultural Eden erase fragile desert lands that support a breathtaking array of wild species, the narrator and her snake-hunting neighbors are forced to examine their environmental attitudes. Superb wildlife cinematography and rare archival film clips combine with dramatic personal stories in this compelling documentary.
