    West of the West - Tales from California's Channel Island [#101H] First People "Rotation" is about the geologic forces 20 million years ago that pushed Santa Barbara and 4 of the Channel islands from the San Diego area to their present location.
    "Arlington Man" is about the discovery of the oldest human remains in all of North America and the affirmation that it was a coastal migration (not solely the land bridge) that contributed to the peopling of North and South America.< br>"First Contact" is actually two parallel stories. One is the voyage of Juan Rodriguez Cabrillo - a Portuguese conquistador sailing for the Spanish - who was looking for China but instead 'discovered' Alta California and the Channel Islands. And that was 89 years before the Pilgrims got to Plymouth Rock, meaning that America really started here. His story is intercut with the San Diego Maritime Museum's ambitious, years-in-the-making, and ultimately successful effort to build a replica of Cabrillo's flagship the San Salvador.
    "Once Upon a Time" is a reveal of the culture of the Island Chumash, a Native American People that thrived for thousands of years on the Channel Islands.
    "The Lone Woman of San Nicolas Island" tells the true story behind Scott O'Dell's 8 million copy best-seller Island of the Blue Dolphins,a book read by millions of Californians.

    "Graveyard of Ships" tells about the 500 shipwrecks on the Channel Islands and the lessons learned from understanding the history of some of them and diving to view others.
    "Magic Isle" is about Santa Catalina Island. It's the only one of the eight ever developed. The Chicago Cubs held spring training there for 31 years, one evening 10,000 people danced in the Casino ballroom, and today it struggles to preserve the buildings left by it's prime owner William Wrigley, Jr.
    "The Legendary King of San Miguel Island" is the Tale of Herbert Lester and his family. They lived on the island in the 1930's and early 1940's, with the two Lester children being schooled there until ages 9 and 12. Betsy Lester recounts her childhood and the remarkable life her parents built 30 miles at sea on a rugged, windswept island.

    "Restoration" covers several aspects of efforts to restore the islands to their condition before settlers arrived in the 1800's. Recovery of the bald eagle and island fox are two examples, along with the creation of a National Park and National Marine Sanctuary.
    "Dark Water" is about today's descendants of Island Chumash (covered in program 101) relearning how to build ancient watercraft, which they use in their annual paddle across dangerous channel waters to a ceremony on Santa Cruz Island.
