Storyline

Sweeping across some of the most diverse landscapes on the planet, North America takes viewers from the silent grandeur of lofty snowcapped peaks to fertile forests and dramatic windswept coasts. The continent's unique geography creates some of the most extreme weather on the planet. Wild animals living in these astonishing and sometimes brutal habitats must be fiercely resilient sharing that human spirit the continent is known for. From jaguars to spinner sharks, wolves that fish to wolverines high in the mountains, this is North America. Written by Discovery

Incredible
21 July 2014 | by amy-r-jarvisSee all my reviews

North America has amazing and stunning photography. What the photographers had to endure to capture just the right scene was astonishing, and at times nerve wracking. Tom Selleck does an amazing job of narrating each show. As stated above by a less than desirable review, Mr. Selleck's political choice and right should not come into play when viewing or buying this series of DVD's. Also be aware that Mr. Selleck did not write the narration of North America, he was hired to read a script which he does a wonderful job of doing! I would like to see more North America films with him narrating, his voice is perfect for it. As for the music, it was actually funny at times (and keeps an audience of smaller people engaged, and lets older ones laugh). The theme song is perfect for the series! One review above stated that the series did not show animals further south... Yes it does, they went to Costa Rica!
