Audible Editor Reviews

Laura Bailey's biography of America's first president is a comprehensive look behind the icon, illustrating how young George Washington's seriousness, intelligence, and sense of ambition were instrumental in his role as a leader of the American Revolution. John Ringham's performance of Bailey's work is appropriately regal and dignified, while Nigel Lambert humanizes Washington with a warm and empathetic timbre while still being able to convey his grandeur. Michael Kilgarriff and Patricia Leventon also contribute credible enactments of key figures, making this not just a biography of Washington, but a fully-fledged document of the beginning of American history as well.

Publisher's Summary

Jefferson and Franklin framed the Declaration of Independence, but it was the supreme task of George Washington to carry its glorious ideals into reality. When Congress turned to him as the leader who represented the unity of America and its devotion to the principles of liberty, Washington realized that destiny was calling. An awesome sense of purpose led him on; dedication and incorruptibility enabled him to succeed. Without Washington it is doubtful if the United States could ever have existed.

The part of George Washington is played by Nigel Lambert, with other parts played by Michael Kilgarriff and Patricia Leventon.
