My college professor made us watch this movie for credit, and I loved it. I couldn't find it on Netflix, in Red Box, or anywhere, until I searched amazon. I am so glad they had it! I live in Texas, and this is a marvelous tale of how the state became what it is today, there is even a short part about the alamo thrown in there :) The reason I purchased it, even though it was about 20 bucks, and I never buy movies til they hit the $5 bin at walmart, is because I am homeschooling my kids, and I felt that even though it is a bit brutal for a child to watch, it really captures the history, and keeps relatively close to the actual story of Texas. They enjoyed watching it. The movie is educational as well as interesting, and sometimes it is hard to combine the two, especially in history, one of my sore subjects. Great actors in it, you should recognize most of them, and they do a great job of re-enactment. The best part about the item was, it wasn't damaged, and worked exactly like a movie is supposed to work! I have gotten DVD's in the past that were not secure and the inside plastic parts of them scratched the disc... But not this one, it was perfect!! Enjoy the show!

Well done and entertaining. Michener's book outlines the content that is factual and that which is fabricated to tell the story of Texas. This is my second copy, and I never get tired of seeing the movie. Acting is superb, and the story is believable.

Both the book and the movie are great works.

This story brought history to life. Great lineup of actors. They need to start making made for tv Miniseries like this again. A show the whole Family can enjoy together.

I had been waiting for it to be formatted in DVD. Very good quality. Package received in record time. I enjoy historical based movies whether real or fiction.

Great Actors in this inspiring movie focused on the start of the Great State Of Texas. Rick Schroder, Benjamin Bratt, Randy Travis, Stacey Keach and Patrick Duffey ..... were outstanding in their roles. Great Movie.

I was very disappointed with this dvd.........it was grainy and looked like a copy of a copy. The case was cheap and looked like the disc info was copied from a picture of the vhs case when this came out on video tape.

A good old western classic (A 2 night TV mini series if I remember right) All star cast, good acting and a fairly decent story line (thought historically, a tad Hollywood changed)
Action throughout and loved to see this again.
Do not expect blueray quality in this as many scenes seemed to be taken right off the original video tape and is grainy. However I soon overlooked this as one tends to get wrapped up in the movie.
If you like good old westerns, I think you'll like it. (it's a long movie 180 minutes_
