SPLENDID SAVAGE The Restless Life of Frederick Russell Burnham

by | Read by Peter Berkrot

Biography & Memoir • 14.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2016

Narrator Peter Berkrot's voice is earthy, raw, and authoritative. It's the perfect match for the story of Frederick Russell Burnham, a man with a life that seems so improbable that, well, it could only be true. In the 1800s, Burham was a frontiersman with a life made for an epic biography. His adventures include pursuing riches in the Yukon Gold Rush, engaging as a wartime tracker during the Apache wars, and traveling to Africa. Along the way, Burnham founded the Boy Scouts. Listeners of this wide-ranging biography will find Berkrot's performance to be grounding, even when the events being recounted seem far-fetched.
