- Series Description
In these humorous and affectionate television poems, humorist Jean Shepherd celebrates America in all its richness and diversity -- from cars to candy, baseball to beer, motels to money. Each week a different aspect of our national psyche is explored as Shepherd travels to the Okefenokee Swamp, Death Valley, Milwaukee, the Old South, and other far-flung locations -- using the PCP-90 portable camera.

- Program Description
What a red-blooded car fanatic wouldn’t give to supervise the assembly of his own car or hop into a 1924 Dusenberg and take a lap around the Indianapolis 500 track in the company of racing great “Duke” Nalon. Humorist Jean Shepherd does all this and more when Jean Shepherd’s America starts the engine.
