Publisher's Summary

Gold fever swept the world in 1897. The chance for untold riches sent thousands of dreamers on a perilous trek toward their fortunes, failures, or deaths. Follow four English aristocrats and their Irish servant as they misguidedly haul their dreams across cruel Canadian terrain toward the Klondike gold fields.

McKeever was the best there ever was

Another great story from Mitch. But if you are reading Michener you don’t need this review.

A Michener short story.

If you enjoyed Michener's Alaska, you'll enjoy Journey as well. If you're wondering whether you'll enjoy Alaska, start with Journey.

Captivating Story!

Well done. I found myself wishing this story could go on, but it couldn't! Makes you imagine yourself right there with the characters.

Disappointed

What did you like best about Journey? What did you like least?

Historical relevance and cultural discriptions were true Michener. However, the story was abreviated and the characters undeveloped. The narration was boringly mundane and without inflection. So glad to have finished it and will take the reviews more seriously before my next audio purchase.

Would you recommend Journey to your friends? Why or why not?

No. My friends would not listen past the first half hour of this narration. They could read a travel book of the gold rush era and find it more exciting.

What didn’t you like about Larry McKeever’s performance?

This narrator is like listening to a monotone professor in a required class...ugh!

Did Journey inspire you to do anything?

Yes, avoid narrations by Larry McKeever.
