After listening to founding brothers,(highly recommended),I expected more out of this book. It seemed to take Washington and tell us all the reasons why the listener shouldn't think of him as in any way great, and all the while dismissing to quickly the very reasons that we do. This seems to stray from Ellis's earlier assessment of the same man. This book also seemed to be more in line with a book meant for classroom discussion than the entertaining and informative book I had expected after listening to his last. I would rather recommend "John Adams" or the afore mentioned Ellis book instead.
Wasn't sure what to expect, but was really good. Excellent narration. And a unique story line. If you like the "Destroyer Men" series you'll love this.
It is a timeless classic. So much more here than the movies (still great) can get into. You get such deeper insight into the characters. It can be a bit more whimsical than the movies, if that is your only exposure to this story. Great narrator.
Sam is still the unsung hero.
There are a lot of different characters in this book, and Inglis does a great job at keeping them separate.
There were times that it drug a little long, but over all it was great.
Worth the credit.
Henry Standing Bear is still the ultimate side kick. The stories just wouldn't be the same without him in there.
I absolutely love this series. I get a new book and its done in just a couple days and then I'm chomping at the bit waiting till next months credits to arrive. I'm so glad that Audible recommended this series to me or I would have never found it.
I absolutely love this story. When I was a kid my older sister took me to see the movie in our down town single screen movie theater. Like most of what is in the book, that theater as well as the down town is gone and moved to the mall, but the memories remain. This will be my generations
