Although David Faulkner is still compiling his Favorite Books for 2012 – Library Inspired Selections I am taking the liberty of endorsing one of the best video documentaries I have ever seen.

Ric Burns American Experience: New York should be required viewing for every student of United States history.  The delivery is excellent. The subject matter is superb.

It is well worth the investment of $89.99 with PBS ~

However, those of you with Amazon Prime can view the entire series for free and a Prime Account is available free for one month ~

What a deal!
