This is a candidate for high honours in audio tapes: the story is appealing, the narrator is excellent and the novel has been cut with great thoughtful-ness. Little Tree, orphaned at the age of five, goes to live with his loving Native American grandparents who teach him the ways of the Cherokee. The chapters are self-contained stories, yet the characters are sustained from one chapter to the next. This is due to the comfortable reading done by Peter Coyote who makes the listener believe that the story is his own personal history. Sounding a bit like Henry Fonda, he makes us cry and laugh and care, with straightforward acting and no tricks. J.P.
