Monotonous narration and fuzzy photo stills.

Should he tell his people to stay friendly with the whites or should they fight them and make war?

I can't imagine that the producer and distributor of this DVD dare to release such a product.

I got this to show my 8th graders. It mentions that it has professional actors portraying the famous characters. This is just a film of black and white, blurry photographs. No actors. I am sending this back. For middle school students, this would be a complete snooze-fest.

I like this DVD set. I agree, it's far from being perfect, but I like it. I like watching old documentaries, learning more about the past, learning more about History. What I like about this set is that it covers a lot of subject you don't usually find on DVD. From legendary outlaws to the great Indian wars, this DVD is full of interesting and fascinating information about America's past and the Wild West. The narrator is a little boring, and sometimes the information is repetitive, but overall it's gonna be a good addition to your collection. The price of this set is great (I got it for only 5$),and like I said earlier the amount of information given to us is impressive, so I don't regret this buy. If, like me, you're interested in History and the Wild West then buy this set, you won't regret it.

The documentary is 9 hours long, in 12 parts:

- Wild Bill Hickok - Parts 1 & 2
James Butler Hickok (a.k.a. Wild Bill) was the most notorious man in the Wild West. A gunfighter, gambler, civil war spy, Indian fighter, peace officer, Hickok was said to have killed more than 100 men but the real total was closer to 10. Widely recognized as the man who won the first classic gunfight on the streets of Springfield, Missouri in 1865, he was shot dead in Deadwood, South Dakota ten years later.

This documentary is a TRUE DOCUMENTARY. Something you won't find on TV nowadays, and as a true historian, with a college degree to prove it, this documentary is amazing. Look at what the people who disliked it gave as proof, the narrator's voice was boring?? it didn't contain tom cruise reenacting a mostly made up script from a 'directors vision'?? give me a damn break, if you love history, you will want this DVD as I did, and watch it several times over.

keep your expectations low. imagine a hobby-level narrated slide show, w/ limited 'ken-burns-like' effects of scanning still photos or drawings to simulate motion. quality of narration varies greatly.
