THE GULF The Making of An American Sea

by | Read by Tom Perkins

History • 20.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2017

Narrator Tom Perkins gives this rich and dense audiobook about the Gulf of Mexico a well-paced narration. He captures the tone (serious and pointed), the voice (informed), and the argument (the Gulf needs attending) with aplomb. Author Davis brings a broad brush to this panoramic work, which explores the meaning of the Gulf Coast's history. The well-documented environmental disasters; the extraordinary fisheries; the use and misuse by industry, real estate hustlers, and ambitious politicians--all are expertly explained. What makes this text more than an indictment is the author's careful balancing of interests and points of view. The stories come to life through vivid profiles of painter Winslow Homer and Mississippi artist/environmentalist Walter Anderson, along with a host of local activists.
