"Part of the outstanding "Discoveries America" DVD series, Matchstick Marvels is a 30 minutes, full color showcase of Patric Acton's unique and entertaining Matchstick Marvels museum located in midwest farming community of Gladbrook, Iowa. Following master craftsman Acton through his simply incredible collection of matchstick creations, Matchstick Marvels reveals how millions of matchsticks were used to build a diverse variety of complex structures including a white-house model, trains, planes, boats, and so much more. Flawlessly recorded in wide screen, digital, high definition format with a Dolby stereo sound system, Matchstick Marvels is especially recommended for school and community library collections as a very special exploration of Acton's remarkable creations. Also very highly recommended from the "Discoveries...America" wide screen, high definition DVD series are the documentary travelogues: Massachusetts (1932978402, $24.95, 60 minutes) and Rhode Island (1932978380, $24.95, 60 minutes).
