AMERICAN GHOST A Family's Haunted Past in the Desert Southwest

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Xe Sands

Biography & Memoir • 8.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2015

This riveting family history explores the eloquent story of the author’s great great grandmother, Julia Schuster Stabb (1844-1896)—as well as the topics of frontier life in Santa Fe and German Jews in the U.S. in the nineteenth century. Narrator Xe Sands exquisitely captures the author’s earnest interest in Julia and her family. Sands's clear voice and refreshing cadences add an authenticity that listeners will find engaging. Julia's Santa Fe home, now La Posada de Santa Fe Resort, is said to be haunted, and Nordhaus explores this phenomenon in terms of “unfinished business.” Overall, Sands’s presentation is smooth and straightforward. Her narration and the fascinating story itself will entertain listeners of all ages. S.C.A. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2015, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2015]
