Francis Parkman’s eyewitness account of his 1846 trek across the early West established him as an important historian and chronicler of soon-lost societies and traditions. Frank Muller’s narration of this well-crafted abridgment is masterful. Parkman wrote with a fine sense of color and landscape. Muller brilliantly enhances these descriptions, adding his rich, expressive voice to Parkman’s observations. Muller’s cadence, sense of timing and emphasis are impeccable, and the narrative flows with the fascination of a novel. The text is a primary resource for American history studies, and the audio format makes a valuable contribution. R.F.W. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: JAN 97]
