DVDDAVT REVIEW: Discoveries America, Vermont
Vermont - known for maple syrup, teddy bears, Ben and Jerry's Ice Cream, and some of the most radical politics outside of Berkley, CA - viewers will see a myriad of sights, including a farm that makes spider web art, a library that straddles the US-Canadian border, and a pumpkin-carving school, while also meeting an order of Benedictine monks who use guitars to spread the word of God, and visiting Bennington (where moose sculptures decorate the streets during Moosefest), as well as learning about the state's numerous covered bridges. Definitely recommended.

DVDDAVT REVIEW: Discoveries America, Vermont
Discoveries...America, Vermont is a highly informative and entertaining DVD documentary that showcases a great more characteristics and history of this north eastern state which has long been a bastion of individualism and patriotism. It once had more than 600 bridges, a legacy honored by the Covered Bridge Museum in Bennington.

It is the home of Moosefest where dozens of moose art sculptures appear around a small Vermont town. In this superbly presented travelogue, viewers will also be treated to a visit to the Cold Hollow Cider Company and the cider making process, the Benedictine monks at the Weston Priory and their music, The Knights Spider Web farm where real spider webs are employed in the creation of art, and so much more. Very highly recommended.
