Dolin’s book tells the story of America from Pilgrim times to the end of the nineteenth century by means of the fur trade, a driving economic force in discovery, exploration, and settlement. Tom Weiner’s narration is crisp and professional, his voice strong, if not especially engaging. It’s a bit too much like an announcer’s, but he’s expressive and sensitive to the text. However, he consistently reads a beat too fast. His pace might work for a novel, but there’s a lot to absorb in this detailed, fast-moving history. Listeners may find that they need to keep going back. The program would have been more enjoyable if he’d slowed down a bit to let the details sink in.
