Chesapeake Requiem

A Year with the Watermen of Vanishing Tangier Island

By Earl Swift
Narrated by: Tom Parks
Length: 12 hours 50 minutes

Chesapeake Requiem

“I was so impressed with this story of Tangier, an exploration of science, history, religion, and culture driven by emotionally salient commentary from people who live there today. I thought it was particularly interesting to learn that the community is conservative both religiously and politically, but their home is being swept away by rising sea levels thanks to climate change, which is usually a politically charged topic. It was also interesting to have insight into what is likely the United States’ first group of ‘climate refugees’ — terms that are also politically charged. Thoughtfully, lovingly, and intelligently done. An important read!”

The Book of Hope

A Survival Guide for Trying Times
Global Icons Series

By Jane Goodall & Douglas Abrams
Narrated by: Douglas Abrams & Jane Goodall
Length: 6 hours 49 minutes

The Book of Hope

“Fascinating interview of naturalist Dr Jane Goodall by biographer Douglas Adams. I listened to the Libro.fm edition which is narrated by both. Interesting to learn how she first got interested in studying animal behavior and how the field has changed. Her research at Gombe National Park has given us an in-depth understanding of chimpanzee behavior. Had the privilege of seeing her in the early 70's at a lecture at National geographic in DC.”
