Ken Burns: America's National Parks and Telluride

KenBurns

Local blogger, Maribeth Clemente, shares an interview with Ken Burns: 

If you’re anything like me, you’ve been moved to tears every night this week watching Ken Burns’s six-part series, The National Parks: America’s Best Idea on PBS.  This work was a labor of love for this master documentarian for some ten years, and I think most of America is grateful for it finally being available for all to see.  "It is the history of the ideas and the individuals that made this uniquely American thing happen,” Ken told me in a Travel Fun interview I conducted with him early September.  ”For the first time in history, land was set aside for the people,” he continued.
