NEVER GIVE UP A Prairie Family's Story

by | Read by Lincoln Hoppe

Biography & Memoir • 3.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2023

Lincoln Hoppe's welcoming tone fits the folksy memories and reflections in this short audiobook as former TV news anchor Tom Brokaw recounts his memories of his family's struggles with prairie living. The stories reach back to his grandparents, who operated a hotel. His father, Red, helped out as a child and learned the hardscrabble values that informed how his son was raised: Work hard, don't complain. Hoppe's narration choices serve Brokaw well. This audiobook isn't an insider tell-all but an even-tempered look back at past generations. Hoppe approaches the material with a consistently calm tone. He doesn't seek to emulate Brokaw's Midwestern mannerisms. Nonetheless, Hoppe's voice illuminates the way of life that Brokaw fondly describes.
