    Woody Allen's early comic fiction was heavily influenced by the zany, pun-ridden humor of S.J. Perelman. And now, for the first time, Woody Allen narrates one of his early collections of short stories, Getting Even. Listen to Woody Allen revenge himself on such significant subjects as death, obesity, organized crime, the invention of the sandwich, and much more.

    Jane says: "This was ok, but I didn’t smile as much as I hoped"
    "classic Woody Allen! If you are a fan, buy it!"

    The frontiersmen were a remarkable breed of men. They were often rough and illiterate, sometimes brutal and vicious, often seeking an escape in the wilderness of mid-America from crimes committed back east. In the beautiful but deadly country which would one day come to be known as West Virginia, Kentucky, Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, and Illinois, more often than not they left their bones to bleach beside forest paths or on the banks of the Ohio River.

    Whitney says: "A Masterpiece for History Novel Enthusiasts!"
    "It does not get better than this!"

    What did you love best about The Frontiersmen?

    This is a wonderful glimps into what life was like for the people who were already in North America when Columbus discovered it, the the new arrivals who wanted to make North America there home. The clash of these cultures changed the world for both. It is so entertaining and informative, that I catch myself rewinding often just so I can rehear some of the moments of that time. Well put together Allan and and great reading Kevin! Greg. Ps. Now I am waiting for the rest of the Winning of America series.


    What other book might you compare The Frontiersmen to and why?

    Charlie Wilsons War is similiar in so far as both show a side of the Untited States, that few no about.


    What about Kevin Foley’s performance did you like?

    His matter-of-fact delivery, and his many pleasant tones.


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

    A film should be done of this book, and it should be .....There is a Blue Jacket in us all!


    Any additional comments?

    Well done........One of the best I have ever listened too and I have already read the entire series at least twice! Sllent Flight, and the Echerts Tecumseh should be recorded.
