HERO TALES How Common Lives Reveal the Uncommon Genius of America

by | Read by Maurice England

Biography & Memoir • 7 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2004

George Washington, Daniel Boone, and Stonewall Jackson are all players in this montage of early American history. What began as the authors’ dinnertime tradition of sharing favorite stories became a joint venture to create a picture of the United States through the art of storytelling. Roosevelt and Lodge trace the period of the American Revolution through the Civil War by highlighting individuals who demonstrate valor and patriotism. Maurice England narrates this collection with stylistic ease and charm. He has a somewhat husky voice and speaks in a friendly tone. His relaxed pace moves the reader through these snapshots of American history. Taking on the role of storyteller, England faithfully captures the authors’ writing style and creates a memorable audio experience. D.M.W. © AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2010]
