OAK FLAT A Fight for Sacred Land in the American West

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Lauren Redniss and a Full Cast

Contemporary Culture • 4.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2020

Author Lauren Redniss aptly delivers the narrative that threads through this immersive audiobook. The fine cast of additional narrators, which includes Crystle Lightning as Naelyn Pike, A. Martinez as Wendsler Nosie, and the redoubtable Arthur Morey as Jackie Gorham, makes the audiobook especially dramatic. The voices transport the listener to the high, dry country of southeast Arizona's Apache San Carlos Reservation. Here is a story of sacred native lands threatened by the development of their vast copper deposits. Accompanied by a stunning pdf of Redniss's creations, this work of art celebrates the Apache culture, and the singular voices of the Apache people sound authentic. The haunting performance of a girl's Sunrise Dance on Oak Flat mesa--her rite of passage--stays with the listener long after the audio ends. A.D.M.
