This frontier saga centers on the Folly family's survival in the wilderness that eventually becomes Arkansas. Difficulties include Dosage Indians, hostile traders and the total destruction brought by the New Madrid earthquake. Austin reads the story in vernacular common to central Arkansas and Missouri, a dialect which may be unfamiliar to many listeners. He varies his voice in tone, pronunciation and speech pattern to allow for French accents, different classes of frontiers-men and women. Austin expertly recreates the dramatic emotions, frightening events and culture that characterized this era. The quick-paced and enlivened reading of a captivating story will please listeners. P.A.J.
