  • Si-cology 1: Tales and Wisdom from Duck Dynasty's Favorite Uncle

    Story

    The brother of patriarch Phil Robertson, Uncle Si has a limitless supply of stories about his childhood, duck hunting adventures, his days in Vietnam, and everything in between. Now the best of those tales are gathered into this roaring collection.

    Si shares stories of the more than 25 marriage proposals he's received in the mail (some with photos!), how he came to use a green Tupperware cup for his ever-present sweet tea, and how his cigarette smoke made a deer cough (he's since quit smoking).

    Would you consider the audio edition of Si-cology 1 to be better than the print version?

    Don't know.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Si-cology 1?

    His stories of Vietnam--particularly the story of the missing engine.


    What didn’t you like about Si Robertson’s performance?

    The narrator did a good job. However, I would have appreciated Si reading the whole book--not just the opening and closing chapters.

  • Crow Killer: The Saga of Liver-Eating Johnson (Midland Book)

    The true story (on which the film Jeremiah Johnson was partially based) of John Johnson, who in 1847 found his wife and her unborn child had been killed by Crow braves. Out of this tragedy came one of the most gripping feuds - one man against a whole tribe - in American history.

    What did you love best about Crow Killer?

    The explanation of why Johnson is one of our great American mythic heroes and the comparison of Johnson to other mythic heroes


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Crow Killer?

    The tale of the biscuits for Blackfeet!


    Did Don Coltrane do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    Coltrane did a fair job in differentiating.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No, no extreme reactions to this book


    Any additional comments?

    I've read this book several times over the years (6 or 7).

    This tale is the basis for the movie "Jeremiah Johnson" and the novel "Mountain Man" by Vardis Fisher. But the REAL Johnson makes both Jeremiah and the Fisher mountain pale in comparison. There's nothing like the real tale. Johnson should be more familiar to us than Bridger or Buffalo Bill Cody. His story is a rich tale of the West and should be treasured.

    Am VERY thankful for the telling of this tale on Audio Book so I can listen to it while driving. Yet, Coltrane is a very static reader with predictable tone and cadence. So, his voice was folksy, yet was flat.

  • A Sand County Almanac

    Not since Thoreau took us to Walden Pond has there been such an important work on the natural world. A Sand County Almanac is Aldo Leopold's simple expression of feeling for the environment at his weekend farm along the Wisconsin River. It is an inviting, gentle world - one that is rapidly disappearing.

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

    Yes, it's just a great listen. Really appreciate Leopold's style and content.


    What three words best describe Stewart L. Udall’s performance?

    Good voice, but I could tell he was reading. A good narrator should be effortless as if he's talking to you.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Loved the sawing of the oak and the last chapter is a tear jerker.

    Here are American author Howard Pyle's exciting and hilarious tales of Robin Hood and his merry band of outlaws, who reigned over Sherwood Forest doing many good deeds for the poor - and deserved misdeeds to the pompous and haughty rich.

    What made the experience of listening to The Merry Adventures of Robin Hood the most enjoyable?

    The depth of characters the narrator accomplished


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Robin Hood--well acted and read.


    Have you listened to any of David Thorn’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    David Thorn sings the songs in the book. Although not sure where they got the tunes from, he did very with that.

    The Pyle story of Robin Hood drags in the middle--the adventure, rob, resolution stories get tiresome. However, the story picks up action toward the end and does end well. Thorn brought out the ending very nicely too.
