A special edition of HumaNature formatted for air: a man utters a curse that comes true, a stint at a dinosaur quarry challenges a woman’s scientific certainty, a woman runs across the country alone and finds the good in others along the way, and a river guide’s first river trip goes horribly, hilariously wrong.

Story 1: Man vs. Machine

Micah Schweizer was skiing in the back-country when he uttered a curse against snowmobilers. But you know what they say—be careful what you wish for.

Story 2: In The Beginning, God Created The Heavens And The Earth And The Allosaurus

Erin Jones thought the answers were written in stone. But a summer internship at a remote dinosaur quarry eroded her certainty.

Story 3: May The Road Rise Up To Meet You, And May The Wind Stop Blowing In Your Face

Christina Lee should have been having the time of her life. Instead, she was stressed and lonely. Until she decided to run away from the rat race…all the way from New York to San Francisco.

Story 4: Row Row Row Your Boat. Or Not. 

It was supposed to be a leisurely float down the Snake River. But when they lost their guide, a group of tourists got more than they bargained for.
