Natl Parks.jpg

You may have seen one or more of the six episodes that make up The National Parks: America's Best Idea airing on public television. The series is directed by Ken Burns and written by Dayton Duncan. From Acadia to Yosemite, Yellowstone to the Everglades, it is the story of the people who devoted themselves to saving the land for future generations to marvel at. In addition to the film, there is a beautifully illustrated, narrative history of the National Park System. The events and political battles that led to each parks existence are detailed as well as their most distinctive features. Check catalog for availability.
