Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Peter Matthiessen

Biography & Memoir • 72 min. • Audio Program • ©

This presentation puts a new spin on spoken-word products. Without introduction or title Matthiessen, naturalist and author, speaks on numerous topics--some personal history, his experiences writing for The New Yorker and his personal philosophy in “Zen Practice” and “The Himalayas.” Matthiessen creates a compelling monologue in this unique program. He speaks with passion for Leonard Peltier, the Native American whose case Matthiessen has championed in his book, In the Spirit of Crazy Horse. And with subtle humor he relates an episode in Zaire with a crazed mongoose. The mini-essays are indexed on the package and random access is possible with the CD version. Windham Hill Records’ founder Will Ackerman started Gang of Seven to publish “real talk, from real people.” Matthiessen’s compelling monologue is a great addition to expand collections and listening experiences.
