The Color of Lightning
- By: Paulette Jiles
- Narrated by: Jack Garrett
- Length: 13 hrs and 33 mins
A soaring work of the imagination based on oral histories of the post - Civil War years in North Texas, Paulette Jiles's The Color of Lightning is at once an intimate look into the hearts and hopes of tragically flawed human beings and a courageous reexamination of a dark American history.
Not for the faint of heart or weak of stomach.

The story was really engaging and well researched. I learned a lot about both the history of native Americans in the early settlers. The performance was fantastic. I could tell one character from another which often does not the case when I’m listening to audiobooks.
