From AudioFile:

The story of America has many tellers but few as edifying, humorous and dispassionate as Taylor in his Pulitzer Prize-winning novel. This story follows Jaimie and his father, Sardius, on the long trek to California's El Dorado. We experience the world of the '49ers through the boy's clear-eyed, if somewhat judgmental, attitudes, aided by erudite commentary from his feckless pa. Lee gives each voice individual character and reads with assurance and enthusiasm. Regional dialects and gender are unfailingly clear. His narration of such a range of characters is a triumph. Thorndike is to be commended for bringing this adventure of American life to the audio format. S.B.S. An AUDIOFILE Earphones Award winner (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
