last night i watched the final episode of historian/filmmaker ken burns' newest PBS series "The National Parks: America's Best Idea." i'm a huge fan of all of burns' work, including "The Civil War" and "The War" (WWII) -- but for me, this is his masterpiece to date. combining little-known historical and political backgrounds, interviews, information on the ecology, geology and natural history of each area, and matchless cinematography, this documentar is required viewing for any citizen. and here's a shameless plug -- to order any of his works, or other PBS DVDs, simply click here.
