National Geographic takes us on a journey to two of the untamed states in America. Hawaii is a place that transformed from a volcanic wasteland into a paradise on Earth through an alchemy of fire, ice and water. Beginning around thirty million years ago, the Hawaiian archipelago slowly emerged from the sea as a volcanic wasteland. How these islands - on land and under the ocean - became a paradise, and how its creatures have adapted to Hawaii's transformative powers, is a story that defies the odds and challenges our expectations. Moving down south to Florida, the coral islands, lush mangroves and sandy beaches of the coastline may seem idyllic. But for its wild inhabitants coping with continued development and human encroachment - plus a host of natural predators - the edge of the sea is a paradise filled with peril. There is a savage side to Florida, a spectacular natural environment teeming with wildlife. Stunning cinematography takes us deep into this hidden wilderness, revealing an array of fearsome predators, wily survivors and dangerous invaders as they struggle to live and thrive in this remarkable, sometimes violent Eden.
