America's Historic Trails
J. Lindner | Gem Lake, MN United States | 02/19/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I first stumbled on ths series on public television about ten years ago. I was captivated by the content and Tom Bodett's wry delivery. Though ten years old, this series is hardly dated. It remains a poignant and reverant travelouge and worth the effort to watch it again and again.

The series covers the theme of trails that helped define and develop America. It covers colonial eastern trails across the county to the western trails up to the Yukon Gold Rush. The theme has not rally been adequately repeated ever since. For this reason this series remains the standard.
