Where does Native American Tribes: The History and Culture of the Sioux rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
quite low because of the idiosyncratic pronounciation of cavalry as listed below
Who was your favorite character and why?
Crazy Horse. Who else?
What aspect of Tracy Turner’s performance might you have changed?
This reader pronounces "cavalry" as "Calvary" as in the Crucifiction throughout this book which is really irritating.
What would have made Native American Tribes: The History and Culture of the Sioux better?
Better writing, better performance.
How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?
The narrative did not flow very well, changing subjects without wrapping up the previous topic and without adequate introduction for the next. It sounds very much like it was haphazardly condensed from a longer work.
What didn’t you like about Tracy Turner’s performance?
His heavy Southern US accent was annoying. Also, he mispronounced several ENGLISH words ("hearth" was mispronounced "herth" and "writhing" was mispronounced "rithing") as well as the names of several Native American tribes ("Sisseton" was mispronounced "Siss-EE-ton" and "Arikara" was mispronounced "Ar-i-KOW-a"). This just comes across as lazy.
If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Native American Tribes: The History and Culture of the Sioux?
I would have had someone more familiar with Native American history and culture proof the performance.
Any additional comments?
I would have enjoyed this much more except for the mispronunciations and the choppy narrative.
