This is a delightful introduction to the 50 states and the District of Columbia, presented through stories, statistics, legends, descriptions, and music. Three former US presidents and four first ladies join with 16 actors and actresses to narrate this work, presented from the points of view of the individual states. The program opens with a reading of the Pledge of Allegiance performed by President George H.W. Bush and First Lady Barbara Bush; President Ronald Reagan and First Lady Nancy Reagan; First Lady Rosalynn Carter; and President Gerald Ford and First Lady Betty Ford. The lively and entertaining performances include the talents of Betty White, Ben Vereen, Rita Moreno, Elliott Gould, and others.
