Have you ever been to Niagara Falls? Well, if you haven't, then you're definitely missing out on experiencing one of the most awesome phenomenons that the natural world has to offer. And, best of all, it's the Canadian side that is really something to behold.

From its impressive 170-foot drop, to its magnificent 2,600-foot expanse, The Horseshoe Falls at Niagara has an amazing history that predates man, going all the way back to the Ice Age.

Through vintage footage, stills, and interviews with noted historians, this informative, 1998 documentary covers the entire history of the Falls, highlighting the last 100 years when, in 1901, Annie Edison successfully went over the Falls in a barrel and in 1960 when 7-year-old Roger Woodward went over without one (and survived!).

When all is said and done, you can be sure that Niagara Falls was/is (and always will be) one of the greatest wonders of the world.
