Episode 4 provides Stephen with some picturesque views of America's rugged mountains and wide open spaces. Starting at the Canadian border, he works his way along the Rocky Mountain and plains states, all the way to the Mexican border.

Stephen meets media mogul Ted Turner at his 50,000 head bison ranch, visits with a Wyoming ranching couple, and tries travel by dog sled before over indulging at a diner in Bismarck, North Dakota. From there, it's through the Badlands of South Dakota and a ride with a trucker traveling through Nebraska.

He gets a glimpse of resort style living in Aspen, Colorado and attends a gala dinner in Houston, Texas before making his way further south to see a band of Tex-mex musicians in El Paso.
