Ben bova does a good job entertaining the reader and listener with story. I found the racial intolerance a bit exagerated and the profanity totally unnecessary. I know people use this type of language in real life but this is not about real life. Otherwise it is a very good listen. The science was good and the little insights into how the media works and the native american folklore was worthwhile.
That old label used to come with your new Kodak SLR camera in the old days. It is still an important message to this day. before you read any of the other books, read Dauntless! For us technical science fiction fans it is a very satisfying read. The tale of how "Black Jack" was recovered and returned to duty is a bit subtle but it is an enjoyable listen anyway!
