A riveting adventure of how America was invented, this stunning Blu-ray version of "America: The Story Of Us" focuses on the people, ideas and events that built our nation, covering 400 years of American history in the most extensive and in-depth television series ever produced by History(TM). From the rigors of linking the continent by wagon trails to the transcontinental railway, the engineering of steel-structured buildings, to landing on the moon, this epic 12-part series is a grand cinematic vision of how this country was built. "America: The Story Of Us" brings this story to life firsthand through patriots, frontiersmen, slaves, abolitionists, Native Americans, pioneers, immigrants, entrepreneurs and inventors. From the revolutionary war that birthed the nation to the civil war that divided it, and to the making of the modern world, "America: The Story Of Us" is an epic, dramatic, heartbreaking and triumphant journey that reminds us that American history truly belongs to we, the people. Sharing their thoughts on the building of America, and what it means to be an American, are a world-class group of individuals including Tom Brokaw, Michael Douglas, Meryl Streep, Buzz Aldrin, Colin Powell, Donald Trump, John Legend, Melissa Etheridge, Brian Williams and more.

I'm a college student and one of my professors showed us a half-hour clip of this and it drew me in so much that I wanted to watch all 3 discs! I ordered it on blu-ray because the price was ridiculously cheap and I figured I may get it in good quality since I'll have it for years. When it shipped, my roommates made fun of me for buying it but after watching 10 minutes of the first episode with a few of them they were hooked too! Needless to say all 5 of them are hooked and one of them watched all the episodes before me. I love every episode because the History Channel did a fantastic job presenting them and I think they're quite informative. They don't go deep into too much detail on the historic events, it's more like good summary of each event, but I've definitely learned a lot from each episode. It was definitely worth buying and like I said, it's addicting to watch. For the excellent quality and presentation of so much history packed into 3 DVDs, $15 seems like a steal!
