Award-winning author and historian Stephen B. Oates infuses immediacy and drama into the tumultuous years leading to the American Civil War. The Approaching Fury is his astonishing account of a nation proclaiming equality for all, while its people grapple with fear and captivity. Abolitionist William Lloyd Garrison, slavery supporter John C. Calhoun, insurrectionist Nat Turner, and 10 other fiery leaders take their turns on stage to promote their opposing viewpoints. While some denounce slavery as an abomination, others debate its economical value. As the key players share their amazing experiences and clashing beliefs, they help shape the critical events that ultimately send us reeling into the Civil War. Combining meticulous research and innovative storytelling, Stephen B. Oates draws on the actual words of his speakers to create their emotion-packed monologues. With Recorded Books' critically-acclaimed narrators, each character steps from the pages of history to give you a fresh understanding of where we've been.
