    In this companion volume to The Discoverers, Pulitzer Prize-winning historian Daniel J. Boorstin brings to life more than three thousand years of human artistic achievement, examining painting, sculpture, architecture, theology, philosophy, history, poetry, drama, literature, dance, music, and film.

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Boorstin is a brilliant, brilliant scholar. The audible version, however, did not quite have the some dynamism as reading the actual book.


    Could you see The Creators being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Maybe a PBS series.


    Any additional comments?

    Thank you for making this available.

  • Sterling Point Books: Stampede for Gold: The Story of the Klondike Rush

    Story
    (12)

    The Klondike gold rush, which occurred between 1896 and 1899, was one of the strangest outbreaks of "gold fever" ever to take place. With news of California's rush still fresh in their minds, thousands of men with get-rich-quick dreams hurried to stake out claims in the Yukon. But they did not count on the murderous weather...or the severe mountain passes that protected the gold.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    It is a lively text by the authority on the Klondike combined with a wonderful narrative voice that makes the text even more exciting.


    What about Andy Caploe’s performance did you like?

    He did brilliantly -- better than a movie.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No, I listen during my evening one-hour walks.


    Any additional comments?

    A superb experience.
