John left the family when Alden was very young to preserve thousands of acres of California parks from Mendocino to Lake Tahoe - including, among others, Jug Handle State Reserve, Goat Mountain, the South Yuba Wild & Scenic River, Bridgeport covered bridge, the Independence Trail State Park, and many more. On September 29Th of this past year, cancer was found in John's liver, and he was given six months to live. Alden became his caregiver, and began chronicling this journey of forgiveness, and of finally getting to know his father. This film is his story. Written by Anonymous

A father saving California land, often at the expense of his son and family
28 March 2012 | by neil-r-andersonSee all my reviews

Filmmaker Alden Olmsted documents the life and final days of his father, John Olmsted. It's a story of John's undeterred efforts, in the spirit of John Muir a century before him, to save lands and trails in Northern California - efforts which often took a great toll on his family and those dear to him. The testimonies of those who knew him paint a full picture of John's life, accomplishments and shortcomings. And John himself, in the late stages of cancer, shares openly about the lands he preserved, the trails he built, but also the relationships he often lost. There is both joy and sorrow, happiness and regret. I highly recommend My Father, Who Art in Nature.
