(5 out of 5 stars)
"This is a wonderful DVD with astonishing video and still images about the glaciers of Alaska. It contains chapters that describe all of the different features of glaciers as well as a relaxing musical background.After watching ths DVD, I had a much better understanding of the relationship between glaciers and changing climate."
WHAT A DISAPPOINTMENT!

"I spent 17 years working as a natural resource manager in Alaska and I'm quite familiar with the glaciers of the 'last frontier'. I bougtht this video to help my 'Lower=48" girlfr4iend learn more about glaciers. What a disappointment!! The video has almost nothing to recommend it. Many of the video images are unclear and the features to be illustrated are often difficult to discern. But the worst problem is the scripting and narration. The script consists mainly of literally hundreds of glacier-related statistics and measurments (down to 0.001 mm!)and often unclear explanations of far too many technical terms that no one but a professional glaciologist coulc possibly need. On the whole, it is a stunningly dull presentation! If you want a lucid and entertaining explanation of the origin, nature, and role of glaciers as part of Earth's landscapes, look elsewhwere. This video is a waste of time and money."
