THE FABRIC OF AMERICA

by | Read by Nelson Runger

Contemporary Culture • 14.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2007

Boundaries and borders shaped the nation--literally and figuratively. Andro Linklater tells the story of surveyor Andrew Ellicott and others who drew the boundary lines and shows how rebellion, treason, corruption, and expansion grew from their seemingly unexciting work. The account continues from the nation's early days to the present day. Nelson Runger delivers a straightforward reading, adding just enough feeling to keep listeners interested and doing occasional voices for figures like Franklin D. Roosevelt. Since Linklater covers just about every boundary issue that shaped the nation, chances are good that listeners will hear the stories relating to their own regional lines. This book offers a new way to look at the nation's history. J.A.S. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/ MAY 08]
