The Blue Ridge Parkway: A Long & Winding Road explores the history of the most visited segment of the National Park Service, The Blue Ridge Parkway, how the route came to be and the conflicts inherent in building the 469-mile Parkway.
This hour-long documentary also takes a fascinating look at the diverse people along the mountain corridor and addresses how the scenic road affected their lives and cultures. The film includes interviews with noted Ph.D. historians and many ordinary people who helped to build the Parkway. Many books have been published about the Parkway, but this film is first to report a stunning secret deal that determined the route of the Parkway and altered the course of American history forever.
