I have not seen any of his shows but remember the discussion here when the National parks one was running. Sounds like a very good writer.

Here is a link that might be useful: Ken Burns

Watched it too and am waiting for the Roosevelt one. Saw his others on PBS also.

Glad you enjoyed him! I had to look him up. His titles didn't really grab my attention, but then I thought, I bet if I read some, I'd probably be surprised at how enjoyable they are. I bet, they'd remind me of George's posts. Judging by his titles. He sounds like a midwest kind of guy. Twain, the dustbowl, etc. Very midwest.

Everything I've seen that was written and/or produced by Ken Burns has been enjoyable and worthwhile. Imagine that? Being entertained and learning something at the same time; that's pretty cool.

I didn't know anything about Mark Twain's younger years, so was a little surprised to learn he was sort of a "rake". Of course, in his later life, his wit and wisdom--plus the twinkle in his eyes--entertained and educated anyone who came into contact with him.
