The original run was the best
Review by That D. on 07/17/20 review stating The original run was the best
For some reason, the original cut has been modified. Most notable, for one reason or another, is the removal of the When Spring Comes song by Dan Berggren. Dans music, as well as Dan Duggan and his wife Peggy Lynn, are a part of the fabric of the Adirondack culture. I had been hearing their style of music in just about any shop in the park for years, and it always felt like it belonged.

The Adirondacks
Review by Mad E. on 07/17/20 review stating The Adirondacks
We are a retired couple living in Oswego, New York and I just loved this program. It gives a great demostration of how protected wilderness and privately owned land can work together. It also showed how some of the most beautiful scenery in Northern New York really looks like and how all types of people can enjoy this stupendous park. Thank you. Ken and Madeleine Esser

Excellent Film
Review by Napa L. on 07/17/20 review stating Excellent Film
Having lived in the Adirondacks for 3 years, attending Paul Smiths College, I found this film unique in many ways. Its historical perspective. I found the film very informative and interesting, wanting now a volume 2 post olympic. Paul Smiths College, my almamater is now a four year college. It would be great to continue the Adirondack story with a new volume for the new century!

I saw this program in High Definition on PBS-HD and it was spectacular. I wish PBS would make this program available on BluRay disc also.

The Adirondacs
Review by Buzz G. on 07/17/20 review stating The Adirondacs
Years ago we found a two story boathouse for rent at Twin Bay Camp, Upper Saranac Lake and brought our family up there during the summers over almost twenty years. During that period we explored the park from border to border. Your TV program brought back a flood of memories of one of the best periods of my life. I am ordering copies for all my children for Christmas who , though scattered across the continent , continue to return to the Saranacs whenever they get the chance. They will all appreciate it.

Review by Lindsay on 07/17/20 review stating A WONDERFUL Film!!!
I watched this on PBS and was so impressed - I didnt want it to end! I couldnt express to my husband what a great film this was. It covered so many aspects and showed so many gorgeous views of the Adirondacks. My husband and I have never visited but now we are planning our next getaway to be in the Adirondacks, however first we are buying this film so he can see how great it is!!! I absolutely loved it! It was so well written.

Review by Third B. on 07/17/20 review stating For all Adirondack Lovers, this is it!!
Being someone who has spent a good part of his life in the Adirondacks, I am always looking for a good program on this special place in my heart. This program brought out all of the adirondack beauty and splendor, from its magnificent mountain ranges and wildlife, to its people and the wonderful villages that alot of adirondackers call home.

Very well done ...
Review by Kestrel on 07/17/20 review stating Very well done ...
After visiting the Adirondacks frequently for many years, my husband and I finally moved here 2 1/2 years ago. Its always different to live and work in a place you once simply played in and this film really offers a well rounded view of life in the park. A survivalist mentality, appreciation of natural beauty, and pragmatic approach to day to day life are common threads that run through this community. There is still nowhere on earth we would rather be and we feel especially fortunate to be here. Watching this documentary makes us even more proud to call the Adirondacks our home.

Great Northern Vacation Land
Review by Fossil C. on 07/17/20 review stating Great Northern Vacation Land
If you want great Kayaking, you dont have to go west! Its right in upstate New York! It has one of the largest parks in the United States preserved along with private land. There are great views, similar to the Smokeys, without the smoke. Plus adventure trails and Lodges built for the wealthy, and now restored.

The Adirondacks are unique and unforgetable. It is like taking a mini-vacation to see all the familiar vistas and views...so much that is unchanging and unchangeable. I gave copies as well to my children who all live far away from New York now.

The Adirondacks DVD -- worth watching!
Review by Jim on 07/17/20 review stating The Adirondacks DVD -- worth watching!
This is one of the best programs produced by PBS. It includes wonderful views of the incredible Adirondack region, it includes touches of history and well as the politics involved in trying to balance fair human use with keeping the region wild, beautiful and clean.

Mix of history, economics and ecology
Review by Jj on 07/17/20 review stating Mix of history, economics and ecology
Inside the Blue Line is what the large Adirondack Park is know by those who have lived or visited this magnificent region. The documentary tells a balanced story of the history/development of the area as well as the tension between economics and ecology. Additionally the legal restraints put on land owners/developers is unprecedented in the US - but so is the partnership between government and the people to maintain the rustic nature of the region.

I dont judge the cover of the book
Review by Nicky on 07/17/20 review stating I dont judge the cover of the book
I expected this report to be a great cover about the whole Adirondacks only, but instead it was more a video tape about a certain village with its citizens which probably enjoyd it.
