From AudioFile:

In The Library of American Lives and Times Collection, narrator Roscoe Orman delivers the straight facts on Peter Stuyvesant, the last director-general of New Amsterdam. Using primary sources, including diaries, letters, and government documents, coauthors Krizner and Sita dispel many of the myths surrounding the colony's early days, including the popular notion that Manhattan Island was purchased from Native Americans for $24. Orman's precise reading gives the listener a sense of confidence in the well-researched materials. His controlled, self-assured voice resembles that of a serious teacher offering explanations of why some place names still exist in New York and why some popular colonial foods are still found on New York menus. Helpful explanatory notes are preceded by a sound alert and read with clarity. Supplementary student materials are also included. S.J.H. AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine
