  • The Earth Shall Weep: A History of Native America

    This carefully researched exploration of Native American culture investigates the complex, often misunderstood histories of hundreds of indigenous peoples. Author James Wilson has drawn from ethnographic and archaeological studies, historical texts, and the rich written and oral traditions of Native Americans to complete this important work.

    Story
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I had to return "The Earth Shall Weep: A History of Native America." The narrator is the worst kind of 1960s-educational-film White Man, it's unlistenable. I'm so sad about this, too, because it's an extremely well written book. But the narrator mangles the content with unfeeling, forced, broad-castery tonal "highs and lows." I thought I could over come it, but I couldn't get past the first chapter. To effectively narrate this book, all that's required is to FEEL the material - it's a very intense and emotional subject. There are too many gifted voice over artists out there to allow this kind of thing to happen.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Nelson Runger?

    How about Michael Horse? How about any number of great Native American actors? How about the author? How about the extremely talented Cassandra Campbell? How about any one of the many gifted v/o artists of any race or sex who would do the material justice?


    Any additional comments?

    James Wilson, please have your outstanding book re-recorded!
