Wonderful

By sue

from Austin

Comments about PBS Ken Burns: The National Parks: America's Best Idea Book:

I love this book. Had seen the series, but was concerned about giving selection of many CDs as a gift. Chose this book instead. It is just like the documentary. Has the text & pictures as shown on TV. I had fears it might be pictures with a few subtitles and comments. Totally happy with product. Perfect reading for large or small amounts of time. Marvelous pictures. Will impress anyone interested in Natural Park program.

Color Me Wow'd

Comments about PBS Ken Burns: The National Parks: America's Best Idea Book:

The photography, the history, the people who were/are involved and fought for/still fighting for our National Parks to be in existence/remain in existence...they are amazing, selfless and gave/give something beyond compare to the present generation and generations to come.
I long to explore our great mother earth and learn ways to give back because so much has been taken for granted and squandered away.
Ken Burns reveals the beauty reminding me how greatful I am to be alive!!

Sincerely,
Diana Newsome
