Summary:
Niagara Falls
NIAGARA FALLS is more than the celebration of a natural wonder: it's a study of human achievement and human folly on an epic scale. It is a tale of exploitation and preservation and the changing nature of love in America - of the way Man has related to Nature over centuries.

Mount Rushmore (American Experience)
High on a granite cliff in South Dakota's Black Hills tower four huge carved faces of American presidents. But is Mount Rushmore a monstrosity, or a masterpiece? A temperamental artist, Gutzon Borglum propelled the project by sheer talent and guts, even as his ego and obsession threatened to tear it apart.

Hoover Dam (American Experience)
An ambitious engineer turned a ragtag army of unemployed into a celebrated work force to create the Hoover Dam. A colossus rising 700 feet above the Colorado River, the dam was built despite oppressive heat, choking dust, and perilous heights. See how this massive undertaking became a beacon of hope in dire times, bringing electricity and water to millions in the U.S. west.

Golden Gate Bridge (American Experience)
This program tells the story of a hustler and self-promoter Joseph Strauss, a man who had never designed or overseen the building of a suspension bridge, but spent thirteen years wrangling with politicians, arguing over designs, and fighting lawsuits, before he was able to break ground.

A Ride Along the Lincoln Highway
Rick Sebak travels across America's first transcontinental highway, checking out the changing landscape along the route from Times Square to San Francisco. This road show incorporates American culture, history, food, family, tradition, and the changing way of the automobile.

On five DVD5 discs. Region coding: Region 1. Audio: Dolby stereo. Screen format: Full Screen or Widescreen.

Special DVD features include additional footage for Niagara Falls; more stops along The Lincoln Highway in Iowa, Nebraska, Wyoming, and Illinois; printable materials for educators for Hoover Dam; and access to program Web sites
