Publisher's Summary

"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.

    Story
    "Mirrored Soul"
    What made the experience of listening to Stickeen the most enjoyable?

    The narration was light and smooth earthy in tone like the Author.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The Wilderness. It is so, because the vast wild is ever changing and had always been the challenge for Muir and his companions; not to conquer it but to be one within it.


    What about Andre Stojka’s performance did you like?

    He is a masterful story teller he had a good tempo and inflection in his reading.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Their were several. Muir describes the views with such depth of feeling you see what he saw rise up before you. It transforms you to a place next to him in his journey. It is a true gift.

    "Great story!"
    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.
