Great ambassador of California
9 January 2006 | by CaliforniaCajunSee all my reviews

I am a California native who moved out of state over 30 years ago. An ex-neighbor began sending me Huell Howser videos about 10 years ago and one of the California's Gold episodes invited viewers to write with comments.

My comment to him was that he taught me more about my native state than I ever knew as a resident. I also told him that his rise to prominence was timely because for a while it seemed like news about celebrity court cases and riots was overshadowing the positive things about California.

His stories are not only newsworthy, but are also real gems "everyone else" has overlooked. His genuine delight with the things he uncovers are what makes his shows so good.

It was a great thrill one evening in 1998 that he actually called me here in Lafayette, LA to thank me for my letter. He told me that I sounded homesick. Huell made me homesick!

This guy is part of California's gold!
