FORESTS OF THE MAYA: Mexico's Yucatan peninsula, home to the Maya, is a forest rich in wildlife, including monkeys, jaguars and vibrant tropical birds. Here lies a secret underworld which holds the key to life.

MOUNTAIN WORLDS: Mountains dominate Mexico, shaping life and culture in this diverse land. Travel south to discover black bears, fiery volcanoes, exquisite birds, and millions of monarch butterflies.

Fantastic Video..
Review by Tejas M. on 07/27/22 review stating Fantastic Video..
...and Ive only seen the segment The Burning North on PBS. Such a rich production, a labor of love capturing the stark beauty of the Chihuahua Desert, the richness of its animal and plant life, and the traditional peoples inhabiting the region. I loved it. Was so excited I sent a copy of this DVD to my hiking buddy at Big Bend National Park, which borders much of this northern Mexico region.

I love the scenery and stories in this DVD. Great way for foreigners to learn about Mexico, its ecosystem, some of its customs and history, and fall in love with it, and for Mexicans to be proud of our country. The only downside is that its not available in Spanish. I hope soon it will be.

Another excellent treat by PBS. However, why does PBS continue to not have Spanish subtitles in shows that focus on Mexico and the Americas? If your purpose is to have more people buy the dvd, why dont you do this? The doc Native America is another case in point. Why did PBS not have Spanish, Nahuatl, Mayan, Quechua, Cherokee, and Navajo language subtitles? Why do you perpetuate this cultural imperialism?
