PLAIN, HONEST MEN The Making of the American Constitution

by | Read by Michael Prichard

History • 19.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2009

The Constitutional Convention of 1787 was convened to define and unite the loosely bonded states into the federal government we know today. The author takes the appropriate opportunity to digress into the pasts of the most prominent delegates. The largest polemic the convention faced was the issue of slavery. Narrator Michael Prichard can do little to make such a factual account exciting, but, as always, his inflections and ability with words make the story listenable and compelling. Opportunities for characterizations or individual voices don't exist, so he keeps his listeners' attention by uniting all he reads into a smooth narrative. The exhaustive information will whet the appetites of history enthusiasts. J.A.H. © AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2009]
