Although presented as a biography of William Lloyd Garrison, an implacable social critic and abolitionist, this audiobook is an excellent historical prequel to the Civil War. The vocabulary and style lull the listener back to that time, providing detail about people and events. The narrator's baritone provides just enough emphasis and understanding to make the task of taking on lots of material a pleasant one. The positive emotional experience of the book shines as it examines the beginning of Civil Rights (and all other kinds of rights) in the United States, which was, more than today, a paradox between our constitution and our practices.
