THE EARTH IS WEEPING The Epic Story of the Indian Wars for the American West

by | Read by John Pruden

History • 18.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2016

Narrator John Pruden does what he can while reading this mostly dry history of the Indian Wars west of the Mississippi. But the prose itself only rarely comes to life--in a few of the battle scenes. The audiobook aims to present a rare balanced view of one of the most unpleasant eras in U.S. history, and succeeds in that. However, getting the facts across is not enough for a nonfiction audiobook. Pruden keeps listeners engaged through the exposition and rewards us when the action heats up. Those who follow him to the end will gain an understanding of American expansion into the Great Plains, and a counterweight to the story told in BURY MY HEART AT WOUNDED KNEE.
