A FEVER IN THE HEARTLAND The Ku Klux Klan's Plot to Take Over America, and the Woman Who Stopped Them

by | Read by Timothy Egan

History • 10.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2023

There's a reason why Timothy Egan is a Pulitzer-Prize-winning reporter and author of numerous bestsellers. He knows how to find an interesting story and tell it well. The rise and fall of the Ku Klux Klan in the American Heartland of the 1920s is one of those true-life dramas that history seems to have forgotten. Fortunately, Egan brings his rigorous journalistic chops to this fascinating story. As a narrator, Egan has enough material to work with--including the violent, racist con man D.C. Stephenson and the woman who brought him down, Madge Oberholtzer--to keep listeners engaged. This is the story of a sad and disturbing part of American history. It is an important listen that informs and engages. J.P.S. © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2023]
