On six million acres in upstate New York, the Adirondack Park is by far the largest park in the lower 48 states. Its land is divided almost evenly between protected wilderness and privately owned tracts creating a pattern of ownership that maintains a delicate relationship between progress and preservation. Through the perspectives of several characters, this program explores the history, seasonal landscape and current state of the Adirondacks.

After visiting the Adirondacks frequently for many years, my husband and I finally moved here 2 1/2 years ago. It's always different to live and work in a place you once simply played in and this film really offers a well rounded view of life in the park. A survivalist mentality, appreciation of natural beauty, and pragmatic approach to day to day life are common threads that run through this community. There is still nowhere on earth we would rather be and we feel especially fortunate to be here. Watching this documentary makes us even more proud to call the Adirondacks our home.

I don't judge the cover of the book

I expected this report to be a great cover about the whole Adirondacks only, but instead it was more a video tape about a certain village with its citizens which probably enjoyd it.

Comments about PBS The Adirondacks DVD:

This is one of the best programs produced by PBS. It includes wonderful views of the incredible Adirondack region, it includes touches of history and well as the politics involved in trying to balance fair human use with keeping the region wild, beautiful and clean.

Comments about PBS The Adirondacks DVD:

The Adirondacks are unique and unforgetable. It is like taking a mini-vacation to see all the familiar vistas and views...so much that is unchanging and unchangeable. I gave copies as well to my children who all live far away from New York now.
