Great Documentary
Review by Rick on 02/26/24 review stating Great Documentary
I will play this for my grandchildren and hopefully they will do the same so that they are aware of this part of history. This is an excellent video that shows that nothing is immune to sudden, unexpected, and drastic changes to life as we now know it.

American Buffalo
Review by Deborah on 02/07/24 review stating American Buffalo
Thoroughly engrossing, but painful unfolding history of the effect of westward settlement of America on native tribes, natural environments and wanton greed and destruction of a once-teeming buffalo population. This was the real foundation of the home of the free and the brave

as usual --- Ken Burns
Review by MARY M. on 01/08/24 review stating as usual --- Ken Burns
as usual --- Ken Burns outdid himself on this film. ive always been fascinated with stories about the Native Americans and their contacts with the Buffalo. I had watched this the first time our local PBS showed it on TV. So I gave the DVD to my brother for Christmas. He is taking a class at Ohio State for senior citizens all about Native Americans and he loved this film, too.

Review by John on 12/03/23 review stating The American Buffalo - A Ken Burns Masterpiece
An excellent film that depicts the wanton killing of massive quantity of animals almost to extinction of the whole breed. I spent almost 3 months eagerly awaiting its release. It was well worth the wait. Thank You
