Few television events attract my attention enough to land on my list of things to do. When I took a recent leave of absence for six weeks, I never turned the television on. But this week I have plans to watch TV for 2 hours each night. The National Parks: America’s Best Idea is on public television.
It’s the story of the parks and of people. The story of John Muir, and others who felt so passionately about the the preservation of our land that they spent their lives fighting to save it. The story of real people, who could only find respite, healing, and recovery in wilderness. It’s also the story of the displacement of Native Americans, and the replacement of animals, with the creation of the parks. So if you’re reading this during the week of September 27, stop reading now, and go to the link above to find out when you can watch.
PS…now (Dec. 2009) the series is availbe for viewing at the National Parks site given above.
Which National Park would you most love to visit…or visit again?
