Niagara Falls is a world wonder shared by the United States and Canada that draws nearly twenty million people each year. We'll find out geographical facts on what makes Niagara Falls unique and how the raging waters are transformed into limitless electrical power for cities and states throughout the region. Since the 19th century couples have journeyed to Niagara Falls to spend their honeymoons. We'll learn the reasons why and then go on some of the best tours - from the Maid of The Mist to the Cave of The Winds to the Journey Behind The Falls. We'll see why 15 people have attempted a trip over the falls, get an up-close look at their history-making contraptions, and find out what happened to the ones who didn't survive. We'll also learn how Niagara Falls held the promise of freedom for Americans fleeing slavery during the 1800s. This product is manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media.

Why should the Falls drag me down here at 5 o'clock in the morning? To show me how big they are and how small I am? To remind me they can get along without any help? All right, so they've proved it. But why not? They've had ten thousand years to get independent. What's so wonderful about that? I suppose I could too, only it might take a little more time.
Fine thing. I tell him we're on our honeymoon and you drag out a copy of Winston Churchill! He must think I'm a pretty hard article.
You should have told him we're on a delayed honeymoon.
Delayed or not, we agreed to treat it like a regular one, didn't we?
I'm game. And it'll be just as good as a regular honeymoon.
Well, it should be better. I've got my union card now.
Let me tell you something. You're young, you're in love. Well, I'll give you a warning. Don't let it get out of hand, like those falls out there. Up above... d'you ever see the river up above the falls? It's calm, and easy, and you throw in a log, it just floats around. Let it move a little further down and it gets going faster, hits some rocks, and... in a minute it's in the lower rapids, and... nothing in the world -- including God himself, I suppose -- can keep it from going over the edge. It just -- goes.
Don't worry. I'm one of those logs that just hang around in the calm.
