As an American I am Always Eager to Learn More of Australia
4 September 2017 | by djg32514See all my reviews

I am admittedly biased. I read the two reviews by folks in Australia and I respect their opinions. But for me, as an old man who has admired and believed in Australia as one of if not the most dynamic and beautiful nations on the planet all I can say is I thoroughly enjoyed it. I have admired the nation's people and their achievements for as long as I can remember. Glimpses into some of the history of this beautiful and inspiring nation are most welcome. The history did not appear disjointed to me and brought many facets of Australian history to life. At a time when my own country and many of it's people, especially politicians, disgust me with their greed and ignorance I find hope in the Aussie citizens. The have a heritage to be proud of. My prayers are that they avoid what I see happening here where history is either ignored or rewritten by ignorance. Excellent Series.
