Donald Burkett is 45 and dying. The Chippewa-Finnish man, first introduced in TRUE NORTH, determines to chronicle his family’s history before he dies of Lou Gehrig’s disease. The exceptional cast, including Traci Svendsgaard, Ray Porter, Tom Weiner, and Paul Michael Garcia, present his story, sometimes harshly, sometimes tenderly, but always unsentimentally and truthfully. Beginning in 1871, with the ancestors who came to Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, and moving between past and present, Donald describes lives lived against a background of nature, a world filled with violence, love, the unknown, and the possible. In this beautiful, spiritual book, the narrators offer impressive performances, bringing a welcome clarity to each human moment. S.J.H. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/ JUL 07]
