With his low, resonant voice, Cotter Smith does a fine job narrating this detailed biography of Confederate general Stonewall Jackson. Gwynne's biography is well researched, giving great insight into Jackson as well as those he interacted with. The author's writing style is easily accessible, and Smith's voice and delivery match the text well. The details of Jackson's life--his humble beginnings in the mountains of western Virginia and his proving himself at West Point, Virginia Military Institute, and then in Confederate service--flow smoothly as narrated by Smith. His intonation, pacing, and inflection are spot-on, making this production seem shorter than it actually is. M.T.F. © AudioFile 2015, Portland, Maine [Published: FEBRUARY 2015]
