This is just a sampling of countless people of similar talent and ambition who have made America a great nation, The narrator delivers the stories in a smooth manner that is easy to listen to, and provides just enough background music and sound effects to bring the stories to life.
I am already listening to it a second time... and no, I am not a history buff.
