THE SEA-RINGED WORLD Sacred Stories of the Americas

by | Read by David Bowles

Children Ages 8+ • 5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2021

With aplomb, translator and narrator David Bowles delivers a wide-ranging collection of traditional tales from Native cultures across the Americas. Speaking in American-accented English, Bowles manages to be expressive and serious without veering into hokeyness; his unobtrusive approach gives primacy to the stories themselves. Packed with gods and humans, creation and transformation, the stories all begin with a few lines of verse, which aids in transitioning from one brief tale to the next. Some listeners may prefer to take in only a few tracks at a time so that they're not overwhelmed by the sheer quantity of characters and cultures depicted. Regardless of how listeners choose to experience it, this accessible audio anthology is both important and entertaining. R.A.H. © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2021]
