    Very Educational

    When a friend of mine came to visit we talked about Yosemite, then i mentioned John Muir, and he said ''Who''. this DVD ''the Poet and the Rough Rider'' explains just how much of an impact John Muir and Theodore Roosevelt had on the formation of our National Park system, while lacking a huge budget, the point is made the DVD also features John Muirs writings set to glorius footage of the seasons in Yosemite. And last there is a music montage Called ''Falling Waters'' which features the music of Craig Huxley. if you havent been to yosemite this will make you want to go!
