Purchased five

Comments about PBS American Experience: Grand Coulee Dam DVD:

As a PBS subscriber & sustainer this member will
buy at least five more of "Grand Coulee Dam" DVD.
It is outstanding and features visuals of scenes
of the Pacific Northwest I have not seen before plus (new to me) information not known before
about the overall project. Am life-long resident of the inland northwest area that this
production covers so very well. This video content is thorough, impressive, and comprehensive in every detail. Rewarding viewing and listening!

Comments about PBS American Experience: Grand Coulee Dam DVD:

It objectively captures the grandeur of the subject without neglecting to shed light on the dam's consequences. From beginning to end, the DVD is as entertaining as it is educational. Thank you!

I had to see for myself

By Readie Kat

from Helena, Montana

Verified Buyer

Comments about PBS American Experience: Grand Coulee Dam DVD:

I saw this film on American Experience, so I had to go see the dam last month. My husband and I were given a ride to the interior of the dam, led by a very knowledgeable "dam docent". The first thing we did upon returning home was to buy the DVD.

I love big, powerful things, particularly rampant nature as tamed by man. Roosevelt's responses to the devastation of the Great Depression were breathtakingly bold and effective. In the short run, the Colville Indian loss of land and way of life, and the disruption of salmon habit, were the price that was paid. In the long run, Grand Coulee Dam and the other Roosevelt initiatives were brilliant and achieved the bigger goal of saving the nation.

American Experience Grand Coulee Dam

By Darrin Jackson/Jackson Flight Center

from Moses Lake, WA.

Comments about PBS American Experience: Grand Coulee Dam DVD:

Having done the flying, for the aerial sequences for this production, it really brought the dam and the river to life. All these years of flying in Eastern Washington, it was a thrill to have PBS tell the story of Grand Coulee Dam.
