Product Description

Few places on earth evoke as much excitement and nostalgia as does the West. Introduced to the world largely by Hollywood, this little known part of the country normally conjures images of guntroting cowboys, barren deserts, rugged mountains with fascinating canyons and amazingly crafted mesas and wild Indians whooping down rock-strewn slopes on their saddle less mustangs. there is, however, much more to the west than 'Indians and cowboys' and this fascinating 2-DVD set from a2zcds portrays the little known history, culture and natural resources of western United States, as never before!

When sold by Amazon.com, this product will be manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media. Amazon.com's standard return policy will apply.

From the Contributor

The films on this fascinating 2-DVD set carry irrefutable visual proof of the unmatched magnetism of the Wild West. Chiseled and honed over centuries by the untiring waters of the Colorado River, the Grand Canyon is rivaled by few other natural phenomena for its grandeur and majesty. Stretching for hundreds of miles across the southwestern part of the Colorado Plateau, the river meanders through a maze of astounding natural sculptures - amphitheaters, amazing tributary canyons, plateaus and mesas. Spectacular 2000 meter vertical drops from the tops of the plateaus to the riverbed greet astounded visitors, while the subtle hues of layered granite cast an undeniable magic spell. Although archeological evidence suggests that natives had inhabited the Grand Canyon and its surrounding areas as back as 2000 BC, the Canyon attracted European and Anglo settlers only in the 19th century, after it had been surveyed and mapped by Sitgreaves and Powell. The completion of the transcontinental railroad in 1883 had profound effects on the Grand Canyon region. Tourism at the Grand Canyon skyrocketed as travelers from all over the country came to the railroad towns of Flagstaff and Williams, both of which capitalized on providing a gateway to the canyon. On January 11, 1908, Theodore Roosevelt established the Grand Canyon National Monument, prohibiting any new mining claims. The Canyon became the seventeenth national park in 1919, under the direction of the newly created National Park Service. Such was the impact of the Canyon's grandeur on him, that President Roosevelt was compelled to warn his countrymen "Do nothing to mar its (the Grand Canyon's) grandeur, for the ages have been at work upon it and man cannot improve it. Keep it for your children, your children's children, and all who come after you..." This fascinating 2DVD set present rare and breathtaking panoramas of the Grand Canyon and several other enchanting tourist attractions in the Wild West.
