Review 1: Dreams of El Dorado audiobook by Fredmo
The poor narration made this book unlistenable for me. Every sentence is read as though it was the most profound thing ever said.
Review 2: Dreams of El Dorado audiobook by Fred Mellender
This includes most all topics: Indian relations/wars/personalities, mountain men, Mormons, the gold rush, the Oregon Trail, cattle drives, buffalo men, Mexican War, the continental railroad, and more. I was looking for a book like this for a long time. The writing is very fine as is the choice of what to include on each topic. Once I got used to the narrators voice I did not find it objectionable at all: he clearly enunciated and I did not find his emphasis as bad as some reviewers did.
Review 3: Dreams of El Dorado audiobook by Kico M
Great and pleasant book
The book guides to the formation of the west of the United States. With an amazing written, the author build a perfect timeline that explain the rise of states, moving of people, changes in history etc. All these with a friendly, but almost scholar and unbiased approach. One of the best books I read this year. Highly recommended for those who like history.
