The National Parks: America's Best Idea: The Scripture Of Nature
The Scripture Of Nature
Season 1  |  Episode 1  |  ABC  |  December 4, 2009

The National Parks traces the history of America's Best Idea from their birth in the mid 1800s to present day. It is simultaneously a biography of compelling characters and of the American landscape. It was filmed over more than six years in some of nature's most spectacular locales, from Acadia to Yosemite, Yellowstone to the Grand Canyon, the Everglades of Florida to the Gates of the Arctic in Alaska. The National Parks is as much a story of people from every conceivable background, rich and poor, famous and unknown, soldiers and scientists, natives and newcomers, idealists, artists and entrepreneurs. They are people willing to devote themselves to saving some precious portion of the land they loved.
