A PATRIOT'S HANDBOOK is not a true audiobook. Rather, it is a masterful audio compilation of American songs, poems, stories, speeches, and other sources--recordings that tell the story of America, and why she remains a unique symbol of freedom. Many of the recordings are the originals, while others are performed by actors and politicians. This is that rare production that is best savored over time, as one listens one day to Martin Luther King's "I Have a Dream" speech, followed by Ronald Reagan's "Farewell Address," and the next by the letters between John and Abigail Adams. This unique program will serve for generations as an audio-textbook to students of American history of all ages. D.J.S.
