Adventure / Drama
Presented by the University of North Carolina , American Adventure is a historical show of American characters throughout the history of the nation depicting important and critical moments in American history. It begins, "This nation is young yet, still new and unfinished. Still now, America is man's greatest adventure in time and space".
Actors portray these stories so well that you can very nearly ...smell the fire burning.. or taste the freshly brewed coffee ... or even hear the birds singing above the lakes....
The American Adventure series is brought to us by NBC with the cooperation of the University of North Carolina and with sponsorship funded by the Ford Foundation.
Most importantly, it is brought to us with the hard work of John Marsden Ehle, Jr., an American writer best known for his fictions set in the Appalachian Mountains of the American South.
