  • National Parks: America's Best Idea

THE NATIONAL PARKS: AMERICA'S BEST IDEA | Americans own the land | PBS

Duration: 02:26
Program: National Parks: America's Best Idea
Broadcast Date: Sep. 27, 2009

Over a montage of images of the country's most spectacular landscapes — from the Grand Canyon to Yosemite — writer Dayton Duncan talks about the notion that is at the heart of the park idea: namely that the people own the land. As discussed in Ken Burns's newest film, THE NATIONAL PARKS: AMERICA'S BEST IDEA, premiering Sunday-Friday, September 27-October 2, 2009, at 8 pm ET/PT, the magnificent views of mountains, waterfalls and canyons belong not to an exclusive few, but to all Americans.
