Jeff Riggenbach's mission is to narrate a "you-are-there" type of book. Author St. John assumes the role of a newspaper reporter writing articles about the Constitutional Convention during the summer of 1787. He fills in his stories with quotes from the framers' diaries and gives life to what, in reality, were secret proceedings. Riggenbach's voice is the perfect accompaniment to this book. He has a good sense of how to make history interesting, and his voice is easy to understand. His no-frills voice, steady, firm and unemotional, suits the text well. Riggenbach gives the delegates a forum to air their views, but his voice never intrudes on the weight of their words. R.I.G. © AudioFile 2000, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/SEP 00]
