Though the rain’s still comin’ down, there’s no reason we can’t close our eyes and pretend it’s not. Winding through reflective country from the ’30s to the ’70s, with rarities and surprises in between, episode 15 celebrates┬áthe endless skies, towering clouds, and rustling grasses of the idealized American West in anticipation of summer.
