In the eighteenth century, navigation was a "hit-or-miss" proposition. Sobel's fascinating story recounts how an unknown man, James Harrison, solved the problem and his many struggles in doing so. Reading's performance is exquisite. Her voice is crisp and precise and makes this fascinating account all the more so. This being a comparatively short work, it can be enjoyed in an afternoon or evening. M.T.F. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/SEP 98]
