Great mini-series about the history of some of the eastern US's waterways
8 February 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I watched this mini-series when it was first aired on PBS and I fell in love with it instantly. If you love boats, the water and history, it will keep you interested from beginning to end. The entire series was filmed by amateur, collegiate students aboard a motor vessel named "Driftwood." All throughout the journey, they stop at various places and towns. While in each place, they talk to locals about the history of the area, its people, and how the waterway has affected them or how they have affected the waterway. Jason Robards does an excellent job narrating the series and many of the locals that they talked with are quite interesting and entertaining at times. I was fortunate to find the complete series on VHS tape many years ago and I still enjoy re-watching them.
