Reviews

Great!

(5 stars)

I really enjoyed this take on American history. I agree so much with Mr. Channing's philosophy on how history should be taught. And the reader was superb! Ms. Hester's voice is as clear and precise as an angel. I hope to hear her read to me again some day!

A Short History of the United States

(4 stars)

I liked this book, it is a nice refresher of our Country's history. I would have liked the book to be longer and cover some of the more recent history also. The people reading did a very good job.

The most through 8+ hours of US history you'll find.
