DVDDAMA REVIEW: Discoveries America, Massachusetts
"The Bay State, rich in colonial and Revolutionary War history, receives the same high-quality treatment in Massachusetts, which showcases a wide variety of attractions, including Boston's Old North Church (where the Change Ringers continue to ring the bells, as did one of their forbearers, Paul Revere); Boston's Crane Paper Company (which proudly proclaims itself to be the sole supplier of paper used in U.S. currency notes), the Norman Rockwell Museum in Stockbridge, the beaches of Provincetown (where "Bruce the Shark" snapped his Jaws), the Pilgrim Hall Museum in Plymouth, and the "Big E" (the Northeast's largest fair). Combining outstanding cinematography and informative commentary, both of these additions to the Discoveries...America series should prove to be popular. Recommended."
