Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“In the heart of the wilderness, two memorable characters grow and change, thanks to versatile narrator Scott Brick. Katsuk is a militant Native American grad student who kidnaps David Marshall, the thirteen-year-old son of a US undersecretary of state. Both evolve in this discomforting production of Herbert’s 1972 book. As thoughtfully portrayed by Brick, Katsuk begins as a rational disciple of his people’s spirits who deteriorates while on a mission of revenge, while David starts as a frightened boy who becomes a capable young man.” AudioFile
“Deeply felt and magical…An eloquent evocation of the old earth-life religion contrasted to the walking death of whites.” Kirkus Reviews
