We return to see how the Kansas City Renaissance Festival has evolved since our first visit 20 years ago. Then we venture over to De Soto, Kansas, east of Lawrence, to learn about the history of the Sunflower Army Ammunition Plant and plans for redevelopment there. And finally, in our Plains People segment, we meet Jolene Savage, who's passionate about teaching kids the importance of social etiquette.

We'll watch runners tackle the Heartland 100 "Spirit of the Prairie" endurance run. Then we'll find out more about pasture burning in the Flint Hills. And in our Plains People segment, we'll meet Joyce Thierer and Ann Birney as they teach history to school children in a very memorable fashion.

We point out some historical highlights in Kansas on the Border Raiders Bicycle Ride, and then, in our Plains People segment, we meet Dave Carlson, a man who cleans up after pets. And in our final segment of the 2007 season, we take a behind-the-scenes look at 20 years of making Sunflower Journeys during our Producers' Reunion.
