BORN OF LAKES AND PLAINS Mixed-Descent Peoples and the Making of the American West

by | Read by Tanis Parenteau

History • 14 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2022

Tanis Parenteau's narration skills are on display in this production of Hyde's book. Hyde delves into the mixing of races and cultures during the settlement of the New World and the process of the intermingling of cultures. While this information is not new, it may not have been discussed much until now. Parenteau recounts the story of five intermingled families as they live through 250 years of history. Her enunciation is precise, and her pace is deliberate but not boring. Her inflection is always appropriate. Those who enjoy histories of the settlement of North America by Europeans and histories of the Native peoples of this continent will not be disappointed.
