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.

Perfectly Wonderful Before and After

Comments about PBS Ken Burns: The National Parks: America's Best Idea DVD & Book - Bonus CD Soundtrack FREE!:

I have this set, obtained through PBS after watching it on my PBS channel which is my "default to channel". I love beautiful hardbound books, rather than digital books and I enjoy my DVD's of favorites which I can view at my leisure and convenience. That said, my review headline expresses my opinion that after viewing the video and thoroughly reading the entire companion book, Go and visit any parks that you can and carry the book along. This will help you to a deeper appreciation and love of these treasures and help you to help preserve and care for and about them. then when you watch the DVDs again they will trigger great memories and emotions. I think it's like reading a great book, and seeing a movie or theater production based on it and then back to the book,

It's like a dream...

Comments about PBS Ken Burns: The National Parks: America's Best Idea DVD & Book - Bonus CD Soundtrack FREE!:

I don't own this product (yet). But I love the very idea of these products and everything it has to do with! As I'm growing older, it is becoming more and more of a dear dream of mine to visit every one of America's national parks. And I really hope to do so! ...After I get my drivers license (and a bank account so I can buy this).

And so, The Goose from Tucson, Arizona, IT IS NEVER TOO LATE TO REACH YOUR DREAMS! Haha, I'd love to be that friend that goes to California with you! Even if I'm young enough to be your granddaughter and only just reached the leagal voting age.

Lump in throat, my heart soars.

Comments about PBS Ken Burns: The National Parks: America's Best Idea DVD & Book - Bonus CD Soundtrack FREE!:

Watching the previews a year before it was even released I knew I'd want the DVD, knowing Ken's work and the subject matter. Now I'll have two: my wife and I ordered one for each other unknowingly, for our anniversary.

Amazing Program!

Comments about PBS Ken Burns: The National Parks: America's Best Idea DVD & Book - Bonus CD Soundtrack FREE!:

I happened upon the second one in the series one evening and HAD to watch each one after that. Incredible historical detail, photography, personal interviews. I learned so much about how our National Parks came to be. It's easy to take for granted that they were always "just there." Thanks for the reminder that a lot of hard work went into setting them aside for everyone to enjoy! Thanks!
