We've already ordered three additional copies for family members and anticipate that we will be getting requests for more!"
DVDDANC REVIEW: Discoveries America, North Carolina
In Discoveries America, North Carolina, viewers will learn that the "Tar Heel State" delights in celebrating tradition (in segments on woodcarving artists and a school devoted to country crafts), as well as preserving its history ( a visit to the Wright Brothers' first flight). In addition, the program stops at a bluegrass festival, the built-from scratch Western town Love Valley, and the Lowe's Motor Speedway (home to NASCAR and the Buck Baker Racing School). This title is sure to be popular and is definitely recommended.
