10 things you probably didn’t know about America ’s 51st state (TBC) - 15 June 2017
"Puerto Rico held a referendum at the weekend to determine
whether or not the Caribbean archipelago should become part of the US.
The result was unequivocal: 97 per cent of eligible voters said they were in favour of their land becoming the 51st state of America.
Many obstacles line the road to statehood for Puerto Rico, which is already classified as an unincorporated territory of the US."





America's public lands are under threat. Support coverage of this critical issue – video - 5 June 2017
"There are few issues as bipartisan as public lands. They underpin American traditions and are central to the US economy.
But they are now threatened like never before. Under the influence of special interests, the Trump administration has paved a path
to give away 640m acres of national land, a third of US property.
Limiting public access and input, this Congress has been called the worst for public lands in US history.
In response, the Guardian is launching a weekly series to look at the role of public lands in American life
and the threat posed by efforts to do away with them."



Ranching life on the high plains of Montana – in pictures - 6 June 2017
"Elliott D Woods spent time in Phillips County in northern Montana, where public land is a source of life to which ranchers are intimately connected.
If the plan to transfer lands to the states succeeds, it will mean a radical restructuring of the economy and the culture of the west."





Discover America's Appalachian Trail - Text + Audio + Video
"The Appalachian Trail is one of the longest and most famous footpaths in the world.
We went to the historic town of Harpers Ferry, West Virginia, the halfway point of the 3,400-kilometer-long Appalachian Trail.
Also known as the AT, this famous trail passes through 14 states in the eastern U.S."

Located as far South as geographically possible in the USA, it's only mildly American in flavour, more a gumbo of French, Carribbean and African American. Tourists might flock to Bourbon Street's non-stop carnival but the whole city really knows how to have a great time."
