When fighting for necessary change, rejection of the status quo is a worthy rebellion. SOMEHOW HOPEFUL is the story of Jason Rutledge, a woodsman dedicating his life to proven methods of protecting our most vital life-giving asset - a healthy, diverse forest. The woodsman's ally in the fight to restore our environment has been mankind's most reliable partner for thousands of years, the powerful draft horse. Jason, and those like him, are poets, craftsmen, artists, farmers and educators doing the real work to make our planet whole again. While the woodsman's critics say he's stuck in the past, Jason believes he is in the future.
