Salt Lake City, Utah – Many of us were introduced to Shelton Johnson in Ken Burns' latest documentary. Johnson is a Detroit native who found his place in America's national parks.

Johnson has written a novel that weaves his own story and his family's past into the history he discovered while researching the buffalo soldiers. The book is called Gloryland. (Rebroadcast)
