BUST HELL WIDE OPEN The Life of Nathan Bedford Forrest

by | Read by Dan John Miller

Biography & Memoir • 10.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2016

Narrator Dan John Miller does well performing this account of the life of the controversial Confederate general Nathan Bedford Forrest. The author presents Forrest as a person with his own strengths, weaknesses, failings, and triumphs. Although Forrest is now known primarily for his leading role in the KKK during Reconstruction, he was, among other things, a self-made man who was amazingly industrious and a military genius without any formal military training. Miller affects a subdued Southern accent when reading this work. His pace is deliberate and steady, making this production easy to follow. He is quite expressive in reading quotations as well as narrative, ably affecting various accents. M.T.F. © AudioFile 2016, Portland, Maine [Published: DECEMBER 2016]
