Constitutional Journal is an account of the founding of the United States that students of the Constitution will enjoy reading for years to come. Veteran print and broadcast journalist St. John "reports" each day's proceedings, flavoring his dispatches with quotes from private correspondence and notes of the delegates. "The research is thorough and diligent and the writing is crisp and lucid." (Dr. James Hutson, Library of Congress)

About the Author:

Jeffrey St. John is the author of five books, and his work in television has received two Emmys. He has written extensively for The New York Times, Chicago Tribune and the Los Angeles Times.

From AudioFile:

Jeff Riggenbach's mission is to narrate a "you-are-there" type of book. Author St. John assumes the role of a newspaper reporter writing articles about the Constitutional Convention during the summer of 1787. He fills in his stories with quotes from the framers' diaries and gives life to what, in reality, were secret proceedings. Riggenbach's voice is the perfect accompaniment to this book. He has a good sense of how to make history interesting, and his voice is easy to understand. His no-frills voice, steady, firm and unemotional, suits the text well. Riggenbach gives the delegates a forum to air their views, but his voice never intrudes on the weight of their words.
