School Library Journal Review

Gr 9 Up-The political, social, and economic events are the foundation of any Civil War narrative. This series contains not only these facts but also stories of people who fought in the war or were its victims. Colloquial voices render up tales throughout the monologue offered in a steady voice by the male narrator. Appropriate sound effects and music complement both verbal tracks. Tape one offers a collection of Civil War stories; tapes two through seven present a chronological account of the war; tape eight recounts the period of Reconstruction, the plight of the freed men, economic recovery in both the North and the South, and the country's continued westward expansion. A teacher prepared listening guide or a strict study of the war will enhance students' understanding of these tapes. The vignettes could be used to supplement lecture materials. Listeners should be aware that the tapes contain several mispronunciations including Roger B. "Tancy", "Cairo", Illinois and William "Seward." The tapes could be utilized by history and social studies classes as a supplement to standard printed texts or as an audio stimulus for creative writing.-Patricia Ann Owens, Wabash Valley College, Mt.
