Directed by Ken Burns for PBS
BuzzFlash.com's Review (excerpt)
Well worth the investment. Spectacular viewing and narration. 6 Discs. Can watch over again and again. A reminder of our common national heritage kept from the rapacious hands of plundering corporations.

Makes for a great gift also

Sold at retail place, but you get the BuzzFlash free postage and handling with each order.

Burns "presents the parks...not just as places of beauty and refuge but as the soul-saving antidote to the ruthless nature of capitalism and American ambition. Which is certainly true."

"Filmed over the course of more than six years at some of nature s most spectacular locales, "The National Parks: America s Best Idea"; is a six-part, 12-hour documentary series by Ken Burns and his longtime colleague Dayton Duncan on the history of America s national parks. This is a story of people rich and poor, famous and unknown, soldiers and scientists, natives and newcomers, idealists, artists and entrepreneurs who were willing to devote themselves to saving some precious portion of the land they loved and in doing so, reminded their fellow citizens of the full meaning of democracy."

"One of the grandest aspects of this series is that one can actually visit the "real thing" and often see the parks as they were hundreds or thousands of years ago. We are off to visit Glacier in a week or so, and Burns has created a travelogue that will enhance my memories of the experience -- if past is prologue as I'm sure it is.

The documentary is greatly enhanced by the website created to complement the film. The "Learn More" area contains video clips from the program, and an interview with Burns. "Get Involved" give you a chance to share National Park stories, to contribute to the "Conservation Nation" weblog, and read online chat transcripts with Burns and others. In the "Spread the Word", you can send virtual postcards, download wallpaper, and collect virtual Park badges.

There's an interactive history of the National Parks and profiles of people who transformed the Park Service over the years. A link appears in the first comment.

I'm looking forward to climbing through this series again and again, in fact on my EFX climber and virtually up El Capitan and in other wonderous places."
