This is a classic and fantastic summary of the Basin and Range Geology for the layperson. I highly recommend it! The narration is outstanding! Now I'm going to grab the rest of the "Annals of the Former World" audiobooks!

As a bibliophile, I pride myself in having read/listened to many good books. This is one of the best! It is an excellent story of personal triumph over hate and oppression - a magnificent story that I will read over and over again.

I was awed by Humphrey Bower's remarkable talent for narrating a book filled with characters from all over the world. There must have been nearly a dozen different accents applied during the reading of this book.

I am so glad I bought this!

This powerful and moving personal narrative of war and culture among the Arab nations during WWI is a masterpiece. It is a mature read/listen - long and sometimes slow - but is all the more incredible for its epic proportion.

The narrator performed this recording with passions and emotion. It was a fantastic journey!

T. E. Lawrence has become a legend and deservedly so.
