    At Will Durant's death at 96, in 1981, his personal papers were dispersed among relatives, collectors, and archive houses. Twenty years later, scholar John Little discovered the previously unknown manuscript of Heroes of History in Durant's granddaughter's garage. Written shortly before he died, these 21 essays serve as an abbreviated version of Durant's best-selling, 11-volume series, The Story of Civilization.

    John says: "A celebration of history"

    Overall

    If an audiobook of Will and Ariel Durant's "The Story of Civilization", "one of the most famous and successful works of scholarship in American literary history" was avaialbe on Audible.com it would certainly be a monumental gift to the world. In "Heroes of History", which Durant wrote in his nineties, the reader gets a taste of a scholar who can communicate a passion for history to his readers.
