The historical adventures, romance, terror, justice and spirit of America's western landscape are eloquently recounted in Geoffrey C. Ward's fascinating chronicle, THE WEST. From Sitting Bull to Buffalo Bill, from the railroad to the Rain Dance, listeners are absorbed by amazing legends and histories of the West's inhabitants, visitors, defenders. As decades pass within Ward's engaging narrative, background music aids in indicating the transition of time. The combination of fine storytelling, fascinating educational anecdotes and well-placed sound effects sets a multi-dimensional scene of what we call "The Old West." Not often does an audiobook cover so much ground so well. R.A.P. Winner of AUDIOFILE Earphones Award ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: JAN 97]
