Continuing his 1,000 mile journey from Minnesota in the north to the southern state of Tennessee, Michael Portillo reaches Tomah, Wisconsin, where he wades in to harvest the nation's most important berry, the cranberry, from the marshes at a century old farm. Boarding the Empire Builder rail service once again, he travels to Wisconsin Dells, where an innovative photographer first captured motion. Michael takes the plunge in the waterpark capital of the world and then makes a special discovery in Baraboo - the circus is in town and it travels by train. Guided by a former clown and ringmaster Michael explores the spectacular wagons of the Greatest Show on Earth.
