UNDERSTANDING AMERICA: THE GREAT SPEECHES, SERMONS, DOCUMENTS AND NARRATIVES OF THE AMERICAN EXPERIENCE (Freeman and Cashill, $18.50)

The words of such notables as Pilgrim leader William Bradford (1590-1657), poet Anne Dudley Bradstreet (1612-72), scientist and statesman Benjamin Franklin (1706-90), Shawnee chief Tecumseh(1768?-1813), frontiersman Daniel Boone (1734-1820), and pioneering feminist Elizabeth Cady Stanton (1815-1902) are among those brought to life in this three-hour, two-cassette audio set, which artfully recreates life in America through the writings of those who helped to shape the nation.
