THE DREAMT LAND Chasing Water and Dust Across California

by | Read by Mark Arax

Contemporary Culture • 25.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2019

Listeners will hear the author's passion for research as he narrates his family's history as California farmers, a story that involves water distribution in the state to this day. Despite his love of his home state, Arax provides evenhanded reporting of good and bad governmental actions and the pitfalls of capitalism and socialism. He objectively recounts the background and facts with the warmth and compassion that only a native could portray. As they get lost in the audiobook, listeners will wonder whether they're hearing a dystopian novel, an essay on immigrant lives in America, or an exposé on circumvented laws and the swaying of public opinion. Arax concludes with a list of objectives he hopes can save his beloved state. S.K.G. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2019]
