    From the 1930s to the 1960s, the United States knowingly used and discarded an entire tribe of people. The Navajo worked unprotected in the uranium mines that fueled the Manhattan Project and the Cold War. Long after these mines were abandoned, Navajos in all four corners of the Reservation (which borders Utah, New Mexico, and Arizona) continued grazing their animals on sagebrush flats riddled with uranium that had been blasted from the ground.

    If you could sum up Yellow Dirt in three words, what would they be?

    Absolutely jaw dropping!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Yellow Dirt?

    The fact that Native Americans in general and Navajos in particular are a throw away society to the government. All anyone cared about was the uranium and getting enough to make bombs. Generations of families are forever changed by greedy men whose only thought was MORE.


    What does Laural Merlington bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    An attempt at pronouncing the Navajo words.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    All that glitters is not gold.


    Any additional comments?

    A well researched and stunning look at the effects of unchecked ethics toward The Navajos. It is the story of greedy and power hungry men who took advantage of the resources and lives of the Navajo People.

    They live among us. They are our neighbors, our mothers, our lovers. They change. When government agents kick down Claire Forrester's front door and murder her parents, Claire realizes just how different she is. Patrick Gamble was nothing special until the day he got on a plane and hours later stepped off it, the only passenger left alive, a hero. Chase Williams has sworn to protect the people of the United States from the menace in their midst, but he is becoming the very thing he has promised to destroy.

    Do something about the play back. It is so frustrating to listen to it. You can do better than this.

    In the heart of Italy, Harvard professor of symbology, Robert Langdon, is drawn into a harrowing world centered on one of history’s most enduring and mysterious literary masterpieces: Dante’s Inferno. Against this backdrop, Langdon battles a chilling adversary and grapples with an ingenious riddle that pulls him into a landscape of classic art, secret passageways, and futuristic science. Drawing from Dante’s dark epic poem, Langdon races to find answers and decide whom to trust...before the world is irrevocably altered.

    Story
    Would you listen to Inferno again? Why?

    I would definitely listen to this again. Dan Brown is not a great writer but he has good ideas for stories. His last book was so boring I don't even remember what it was about. Inferno was much better. Brown built his characters this time and did a much better job telling the story rather than giving endless facts as dialogue. It was still a predictable story but more satisfactory.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Robert Langdon because he has my dream job.


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

    Yes. I like him.
