The line on the map that separates the U.S. and Canada wasn't always the "world's longest undefended border." Rather, it was imposed across Indigenous lands with a pattern of violence. The sonorous voice of Malcom Hillgartner guides listeners on this examination of the border's evolution from the American Revolution through the Civil War and the Canadian Confederation, before it finally settled into its current form in the twentieth century. Historian Benjamin Hoy's style is approachable, more journalistic than academic, and it's warmed up by Hillgartner's easy-to-listen-to narration. Though, overall, this title may be more engaging for specialists in the field than for the general listener, the research is meticulous, and its oral histories add a human touch--that suit the audio edition.
