As a leading voice in socially responsible travel and lifestyle, World Footprints explores diverse topics such as modern slavery, film, music, politics, sustainability and travel intelligence as we travel the planet together.

World Footprints travels through Eastern Montana and explores the history and diversity of Big Sky Country's eastern border. Today we'll fulfill a "need for speed" when we go drag car racing at Phillips County Motor Sports Dragstrip in Malta with racing champions Shaun and Dillion Carnahan. We'll travel along the vast landscape of the Hammond Ranch where some of the most significant dinosaur discoveries have been made. From Malta we'll head south to Billings and go behind the scenes at the Dino Lab where prehistoric creatures are restored fossil-by-fossil. Finally, we'll visit the elegant Moss Mansion former home to Billings founder Preston Boyd Moss. We'll learn how Moss' vision for Billings and his world travels influenced the city's growth and his home's design.
