GRINNELL America's Environmental Pioneer and His Restless Drive to Save the West

by | Read by Joe Barrett

Biography & Memoir • 18.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2019

In a deep, gravelly voice, narrator Joe Barrett ably presents this account of the life of George Bird Grinnell, who is arguably the impetus behind the creation of the American conservation movement. A Yale-educated New Yorker, Grinnell was a scholar who excavated dinosaurs on the Great Plains, accompanied Custer in the Black Hills, assisted in mapping Yellowstone, and became a respected scholar of the Plains Indians, especially the Cheyenne. Barrett's voice has the quality of one who has been in the wilderness for many years--gravelly and somewhat careworn. He is easy to understand and expressive. He effects a slightly different voice for quotes--but only enough for the listener to note the shift from the narrative. M.T.F. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: DECEMBER 2019]
