AMERICAN STORY A Lifetime Search for Ordinary People Doing Extraordinary Things

by | Read by Bob Dotson

Contemporary Culture • 9.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2013

"Today" show correspondent and former Travel Channel host Bob Dotson traveled around the U.S. interviewing regular people who have contributed to our nation's uniqueness. The result is a heartwarming collection of inspirational accounts and proposed solutions to our problems. Dotson narrates his book, and he does a terrific job, as befits someone whose job is to tell stories on television. His deep, rich tone, easy pacing, and self-effacing humor make this work enjoyable, and he's able to coax fascinating tales out of the people he meets. He's friendly, and he takes his subjects' words seriously without sugarcoating or trying to embellish them. It's a fun book, and you'll meet some fascinating people.
