AMERICAN TEMPEST The Heroes and Villains of the Boston Tea Party

by | Read by William Hughes

History • 8.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2011

William Hughes's clean delivery and crisp pacing immediately engage the listener and augment the appeal of this history, which is as full of fascinating characters and drama as the best fiction. Hughes's seamless transitions from quoted passages to straightforward narration allow the text to flow smoothly while retaining the immediacy that primary source material provides. Details of the greed, ambition, and ideology that roiled beneath the nobler desires fueling our American Revolution are fascinating—if sometimes uncomfortable to contemplate. Unavoidable parallels with today's super-heated political climate add an element of timeliness. Hughes’s skilled narration of Unger's unflinching examination of icons and tales from the Boston Tea Party, Sons of Liberty, and other players involved in the labored birth of our nation makes this an enjoyable and accessible title for all listeners.
