James A. Crutchfield's biography of the Virginia militiaman who took the presidency of a fledgling nation concentrates mainly on his military career and the events surrounding his presidency. Both Crutchfield's writing and Rusty Nelson's narration make this production a straightforward retelling, one that makes a good introduction to George Washington's life. Nelson reads in the voice of a lecturing professor, with an emphasis on clearly conveying information rather than storytelling, reflecting an account that is heavy on dates and facts. Listeners familiar with Washington's biography may want to seek out a more insightful or detailed presentation of his life. J.A.S. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/ MAR 07]
