Product Description

THE NATIONAL PARKS is the story of an idea as uniquely American as the Declaration of Independence: that the most special places in the nation should be preserved for everyone. The series traces the birth of the national park idea in the mid-1800s and follows its evolution for nearly 150 years, chronicling the addition of new parks through the stories of the people who helped create them.

Format: DVD
The best DVD collection I have ever acquired.
Story and video are just first class.
I would recommend this collection to everyone in the USA and Canada. Wonderful photography and excellent illustration of the fight that was necessary to protect the natural beauty of North America. John Muir should go down in History as a legend.

Format: DVD
The DVD set, the National Parks Americas Best Idea is a historical journey of the National parks. I like the presentation, It is moving to see philanthropist give so much for the common good of America. You don't have to be American to enjoy the product. The problem is, after you watch the DVD set once, you may not have tie to watch it again.

This is a Ken Burns documentary, beautifully photographed and researched. Some of the newer parks are not as well represented, but it is enlightening nevertheless.
