    Story
    "Well Researched"

    This was like the Rise and Fall of the Third Reich except about indigenous Americans and of course no real resolution like we had with National Socialism. My family is Native American and the real history of what happened is heartbreaking. I was already pretty well educated about the history from the termination acts onward but that is pretty modern and it's just another thing on a long line of injustice and prejudice. I highly recommend this if you're interested in learning the history of the Native American people.

    Story
    "Please re-record this well written book"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I had to return "The Earth Shall Weep: A History of Native America." The narrator is the worst kind of 1960s-educational-film White Man, it's unlistenable. I'm so sad about this, too, because it's an extremely well written book. But the narrator mangles the content with unfeeling, forced, broad-castery tonal "highs and lows." I thought I could over come it, but I couldn't get past the first chapter. To effectively narrate this book, all that's required is to FEEL the material - it's a very intense and emotional subject. There are too many gifted voice over artists out there to allow this kind of thing to happen.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Nelson Runger?

    How about Michael Horse? How about any number of great Native American actors? How about the author? How about the extremely talented Cassandra Campbell? How about any one of the many gifted v/o artists of any race or sex who would do the material justice?


    Any additional comments?

    James Wilson, please have your outstanding book re-recorded!

    Story
    "A bit in depth for an audiobook"
    Would you try another book from James Wilson and/or Nelson Runger?

    probably wouldn't purchase another audiobook by them but probably would buy an ebook on the right topic. They are so in depth that I really needed to go back and reread parts and thats not a favorable option on an audiobook.


    What did you like best about this story?

    It went beyond the cowboys and indians story. It discusses why the story is important and what are the results of 4 centuries of indian abuses.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    Mispronounced words. It was as if the reader had no access to any experts on the topic.


    Did The Earth Shall Weep inspire you to do anything?

    No
