    (54)

    In 1836, when she was nine years old, Cynthia Ann Parker was kidnapped by Comanche Indians. This is the story of how she grew up with them, mastered their ways, married one of their leaders, and became, in every way, a Comanche woman. It is also the story of a proud and innocent people whose lives pulsed with the very heartbeat of the land. It is the story of a way of life that is gone forever.

    mamaD says: "nice book but the narrator could be better."
    "Wonderful book. Disappointing narrator."

    What would have made Ride the Wind better?

    A better narrator.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Laurie Klein’s performances?

    Never. Most of her characters sound like old crackly voiced codgers.


    Any additional comments?

    I have read this book about five times over the years and it has been one of my favorite books of all time. The beauty of the lives of native americans is expressed wonderfully in this book based on a true story. I was overjoyed when I saw that it was available at Audible Books. I ordered it immediately and couldn't wait to listen. I was so disappointed in the quality of the narrator chosen for this book that after the second chapter I'd had enough and quit listening. I wondered if it was just me and had a friend listen and she couldn't listen to anymore after 1 chapter. When I went back and read other reviews, there were several with the same complaint that I had. Please have another narrator read this book and keep it unabridged. You have so many talented readers that could do such a wonderful job. I am an avid reader and listener of your books with a long time membership with Audible Books. Please consider another narrator.
