    America's national parks spring from an idea as radical as the Declaration of Independence: that the nation's most magnificent and sacred places should be preserved, not for royalty or the rich, but for everyone. In this evocative narrative, Ken Burns and Dayton Duncan delve into the history of the park idea.

  • In His Own Words: Conversations with Meister Eckhart

    Conversations with Meister Eckhart is an imagined conversation with this 13th-century mystic, around such themes as detachment, which he famously placed above love; spirituality; God; the soul; and suffering. But while the conversation is imagined, Eckhart's words are not; they are authentically his own.

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

    A good book of the words of Eckhart and an insight into the profound depths of his realization. Interesting how Eckharts experiences are the same as found in the writngs and teachings of Buddhist and Hindu mystics in transcending multipliticity to achieve ONENESS .

    Story

    In this companion to the HBO miniseries - executive produced by Tom Hanks, Steven Spielberg, and Gary Goetzman - Hugh Ambrose reveals the intertwined odysseys of four U.S. Marines and a U.S. Navy carrier pilot during World War II. Between America's retreat from China in late November 1941 and the moment General MacArthur's airplane touched down on the Japanese mainland in August of 1945, five men connected by happenstance fought the key battles of the war against Japan.

    Howard says: "Big let down"
    "Lousy"
    Overall

    The reader talks in a monotone and it is hard to keep awake. The story is hard to follow because the events are stuck together in such a way that you get confused about who is who and where. The facts of the conflict are presented in a manner lacking veracity. There are better books on the Pacific War that give a less tainted version. This might have been good for TV but for reading ( listening ) it leaves a lot to be desired

    A wonderful historical novel that opens a new way of understanding the historical events that led up to the Russian revolution of 1917. Good readers
