Elizabeth Wiley's stentorian voice takes listeners on the lifelong adventures of Fanny Bullock Workman, a most determined woman, who summited most of the highest mountain peaks in the world. Beginning in the 1880s, Workman and her husband, Hunter, scaled the New Hampshire peak of Mt. Washington, and then the highest peaks of the Alps, the Himalayas, and the Andes, as well as other mountain ranges across the world in their decades of exploring. Wiley uses a steady voice for reports and letters to and from the Royal Geographical Society, newspaper stories, and quotes from the publications of the Workman duo. She adopts cultured tones for Workman and a sonorous intonation for Hunter, making the breathtaking landscapes come to life. Wiley's narration breathes life into Workman's adventures in a male-dominated world. M.B.K. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: SEPTEMBER 2019]
