Summary

Summary

Our Island Story by H. E. Marshall is an Edwardian history book for younger listeners which tells the story of England. Volume 1 begins the story with the Romans and concludes with the reign of Richard the Lionheart.

Antonia Fraser and many other current historians declare that it was this book that opened the delights of history for them. Though slightly edited to take account of historical changes and attitudes, it is presented here unabridged.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Not only will young listeners hear the fascinating story of Britain, they will also experience Marshall’s Edwardian style, since this history was written in 1905. Myth and reality are combined, substantially adding to the history commonly found in school books. Narrators Anna Bentinck and Daniel Philpott are spot-on as they continually switch accents and move from text to quotation in this fast-paced history. Bentinck presents the comprehensive introduction, and then she and Philpott take up the story, never failing to keep listeners’ attention. Also included is a booklet that helpfully lists chapters, historical periods, and the placement of material on each CD. Listening to this unique presentation is a rewarding experience.” AudioFile
