One of the best readers

(4 stars)

I've listened to many books KaRay has read, that's how I have listened to many books, by the readers similar. Many great books, so well read. I am listening again through with my children. It is refreshing to get history without hating on America like the propaganda from modern culturally marxist government school. We listen to Geronimo, Frederick Douglass, Booker T also, many others, get a good picture of history from the minds of its greats.

how do I give it 10 stars?
