Based on a true story, KALIMANTAAN is the mesmerizing tale of what happens when an Englishman creates a private kingdom on the coast of Borneo in 1830. Donada Peters's deft reading transports listeners into a haunting realm--colored by white-hot sun and deep green jungle, peopled by honorable headhunters and half-mad colonials. Peters negotiates Godshalk's elliptical style effortlessly, never losing the listener in the author's sudden shifts of scene. She brings the passions and sorrows of the international cast so vividly, so heartbreakingly to life that listeners may find themselves laughing or crying aloud. Passersby will stare, but lost in another time and place, you will not notice. A.C.S. Winner of AUDIOFILE Earphones Award © AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/SEP 99]
