THE RAGGED EDGE OF THE WORLD Encounters at the Frontier Where Modernity, Wildlands, and Indigenous Peoples Meet

by | Read by Luis Moreno

Contemporary Culture • 11.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2011

For 40 years, Eugene Linden has traveled the planet for national news magazines and NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC. Not surprisingly, his files are full of stories not included in his eight other books. This book is a collection of those bits and pieces. Like similar collections, it reveals more about the author than more thematic work. From Borneo to the Congo, the images are vivid and significant. Luis Moreno provides perfectly natural voice, gruff and wise, for Linden's travels. Unsurprisingly, in a book with so many exotic locales, Moreno's pronunciation of foreign words can be eccentric. However, his narration is easy to follow and well paced and conveys the author’s love for the ragged edge and its people. F.C. © AudioFile 2012, Portland, Maine [Published: SEPTEMBER 2012]
