"Stickeen.... pushed his head past my shoulders, looked down and across, then looked me in the face and began to mutter and whine; saying as plainly as if speaking with words, "Surely, you are not going into that awful place. "As the darkness of a freezing night approaches, an experienced American naturalist and a dog are trapped on an Alaskan Glacier. This is a true story, written by one of the United States' most famous naturalists and explorers.

Would you listen to Stickeen again? Why?

I listened to this story twice the day I downloaded it.

Any additional comments?

This was a great story by John Muir, and the narrator did great job bringing me as a listener right into the middle of it all.

Despite considerable press coverage and a lengthy trial, the full story of the Fundamentalist Church of Latter Day Saints has remained largely untold. Only one man can reveal the whole, astounding truth: Sam Brower, the private investigator who devoted years of his life to breaking open the secret practices of the FLDS and bringing Warren Jeffs and his inner circle to justice.

Intriguing, captivating, informative! This was a great book for anyone interested in learning of the case of Warren Jeffs, and even more so into the culture of this cult and how people can be trapped in such cultures. It was insightful and easily kept my attention. Te narrator was easy to listen to, something which I had previously underestimated the importance of.

While not an exhaustive account, this book gives a thorough underlying knowledge of and insight into the subjects. It is a strong foundation for further reading or research, if one is so inclined.
