A NATION RISING Untold Tales of Flawed Founders, Fallen Heroes, and Forgotten Fighters from America's Hidden History

by | Read by Robertson Dean

History • 7 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2010

Taking issue with the euphemism and understatement that tend to mask history, the author covers six lesser-known aspects of America's past. Robertson Dean's rich voice brings drama and emotion to the stories, which recount Aaron Burr's trial, incidents of anti-Catholic sentiment, the Amistad rebellion, and the Seminole wars in Florida. The stories are rich in detail: Aaron Burr's biography includes a march to Quebec with Benedict Arnold, while Andrew Jackson's childhood experience as a British prisoner works its way into the story of his meeting with a Native American warrior. Davis's account is best as an introduction to these historical events. J.A.S. © AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine [Published: SEPTEMBER 2010]
