If you want to be entertained and get an education at the same time, the History Channel provides both when they're not talking about how Nostrodamus foresaw space aliens who left behind a cloth with an image of Jesus in desert space #54, or some other such drivel. In this case, it's about our fifty states, providing a geography lesson, hours of light entertainment, and just plain fun information.

In three DVD's, you get four states per hour devoted to the images, nickname, background, customs, dishes, climate, sports, and main products of each state. Of course they tell you the size and population in relation to others, when it came into the union, and its capital, which most Americans probably don't know to begin with. Along the way, I learn about the lobster of Maine and the autumn of Vermont, that California has the highest terrain above sea level and lowest terrain level below the sea in the country, the Gateway to the West in St. Louis, the state that gave us the most presidents and the fewest, moonshine in West Virginia, the freezing temperatures of Minnesota, and Cajun cooking. (I can almost taste the Tabasco)!

I recommend this for anyone who wants to learn geography and is between the ages of 8 and 68. It is one of these light entertainment stories that kept me glued to the boob tube. The DVD's allow me to see them at my leisure, when I want to see them. And of course, I can hit the back X2 button for anything I missed or want to hear or see again.

I bought this and "The Presidents," also from the History Channel, for approximately $35.00.

Aloha!

OK, first let me say that this is an entertaining and informative series with interesting tidbits about each of our nation's fifty states!

They open each of the fifty segments showing a postage stamp with "Greetings from...(insert state name here)," followed by the state's flag, followed by pertinent info about the state in question. Except that when they intro Washington on disk two, THAT'S NOT THE WASHINGTON STATE FLAG!!! They actually show the Washington, D.C. flag instead!

Yes, it's a minor error, but Washington state and Washington, D.C. are not the same thing!

Otherwise, this is a truly enjoyable series and I highly recommend it!

I started watching these on the History Channel and I was hooked. I found the set on Amazon and now I still can't get enough. These are great for kids to enjoy as well. I travel all over the US on my motorcycle and it is so nice to see some of the things on this video that I've seen before and say "hey I've been there".....and also for the places I have not seen it's great to have this so I can say "hey I really MUST go there on my next trip!" You can't beat this set of videos.

I am an 8th grade social studies teacher, and one of my standards to teach from has to do with knowning the 50 United States. This was a great item to have the kids enjoyed the video and it was easy to use when I was absent or had a shortened day. Each state is short os even if it is a shortened class period you can always get though at least one.

We purchased this DVD set to take on a trip out west. Every time we crossed the line into another state we'd turn the DVD on about that state. It was really interesting & informative. The kids really enjoyed it (even the younger ones). Each state has approx. 10-20 min. about it. It's a narrative with interviews, pictures, lots of facts, etc. I would highly recommend it!

This is a really neat collection of the cool things about each state. I have often thought that I would take a tour around the country and stop for a bit in each state. Other than some of the larger and most popular ones, I have not had a chance to do this. This is great for those of us who would like to do this but have not gotten around to it.

I have this friend in Germany who has been an e-mail buddy for a long time. I am sending this set to them so they can appreciate seeing America before coming over here to live
