Pictured: group in 1920s automobiles Into the Wild: Edison, Ford & Friends
Between 1914 and 1924, a group of famous friends — prolific inventor Thomas Edison, pioneering auto-maker Henry Ford, best-selling nature writer John Burroughs, and later, tire manufacturer Harvey Firestone — traveled to the remote reaches of Florida's Everglades in search of a rustic camping adventure far from the pressures of work and the press. Freed from the demands of daily life, the friends and their entourage enjoyed the serendipity of life on the road, stopping to help farmers in the field, examining streams for hydroelectric possibilities or engaging in an impromptu tree-chopping contest. This program features excerpts from the journals and letters of Burroughs and Firestone as well as interviews with historians and biographers. Combined with historic family photographs, vintage press footage and period music, this half-hour documentary offers insight into the famous friends and a rare glimpse of the men behind their public personas.
