Grover Gardner is an exceptional narrator. With only small changes in the tone of his voice and the pacing of his narration, he can express an author's surprise, excitement, or outrage. In this way, he carries a reading along without artifice, making for a smooth listening experience. He shows these skills well in this history of American Indians from 1860 to 1890. It would be all too easy to read the work in a clinical, detached way or with an over-the-top sense of outrage at the ill treatment and abuse of America's original inhabitants. But Gardner carries it off nicely. Furthermore, his able, clear pronunciation of Native American names makes them seem commonplace, with no hesitation or awkwardness. R.C.G.
