ADALINE FALLING STAR

by | Read by Elaina Erika Davis

Children Ages 10+ • 2.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2000

This is a solid, clear narration of Kit Carson's daughter's fictional adventure. Born of his Arapaho wife, the daughter, Adaline Falling Star, is faced with discrimination and ignorance because she is half-white, half-American Indian. Told in the first person, much of the story reveals the thoughts of the young girl as she traverses the Missouri River. Although some odd words are read with the dialect and accent of the setting, the attempt defeats the purpose of adding authenticity by distracting from an even flow of narration. It's a bit annoying, but not enough to divert the attention of the listener from an enjoyable story. D.L.M. (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/ MAR 02]
