ASTOUNDINGLY FANTASTIC NATURE SERIES
CelticNatureBoy | Ohio | 09/07/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This series has very good explanations of how wild life is affected by the environment; how it affects their life style, behavior, diet, etc. The greatest diversity of environments and creatures of any nature series I have ever seen. Fantastic cinematography. No gory scenes of predators killing prey. Just a broad coverage of the web which makes up all life in the Americas. Many of the natural environments and life styles are now extinct and can only be seen in this nature series. A scientific presentation with great humor and appeal. I own a large library of nature and wildlife DVD; this is one of the very very best. I have waited for this one to come out on DVD for a long time."
The Perfect (natural ) Storm !!
Wayne Beaupre | constant global traveller, Texas based. | 04/05/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This series on the Natural world is as good as it gets ! Anyone who has not viewed this magnificent set of DVDs has no idea what they are missing.

The recent series ' Planet Earth ' - also remarkable - is not as intense, is not as defining, and is not as awe inspiring as is this production !
Secondly, the Planet Earth item focuses more on the action of the predator claiming its victim ... I assume to match today's demand for violent, shocking viewing. This Atlas of the Natural World avoids this unnecessary predator/prey activity, going only as far as showing up to where the prey will notescape - moving on without the blood, gore & deaths. A very pleasant surprise to those of us who realize this predator/prey activity is there but don't need to always see the details of the killing/death.

All of that, plus the man who has no peer - David Attenborough !

Being an educated, professional male of 60 years, I can say this : I have NEVER seen better than this program on the natural world ... EVER !!
Words such as ' stunning, breath taking, awe inspiring, and beautiful ' would be the ones I will use to describe this outstanding & refreshing product !!"
