Publisher's Summary

Here is the second of six chronological releases following the dates of Alistair Cooke's Letters from America (rather than a patchwork based on the dates of actual historical events). This includes the original recordings of the "letters", providing the appeal of Cooke's ageing voice in authentic recordings from the past 50 years.

    Story
    "Enjoyable, but much too short"

    Narration is fine; there is some added commentary for contextualization which works well. These letters are mostly about great events of the early sixties.

    However, there are far too few letters included in the collection. The product detail claims "unabridged", but beware you will only get a couple of hours, and not all of that will be Alistair Cooke. This collection is thus very poor value for cash.
