Unabridged Edition
Running Time
17 Hrs. 37 Min.
In this free unabridged recording presented by Librivox, Henry Adams recounts his life and era, starting as the son of post-revolution aristocracy (he is the heir of two Presidents, no less) and moving through a time of bewildering change that rendered the American landscape of his youth unrecognizable. Adams was a man stuck between two eras, living in a region of the country that was one of the first to witness the effects of the industrial revolution first hand. From his unique perspective, Adams was able to comment on how America changed at a very important time and to reflect on what was both improved and what was lost as the world marched inexorably towards modernization. The autobiography also serves as a pungent critique of formal education in the 19th century, a system that left Adams unprepared for the scientific and technological innovations that fueled this new age and forced him to pursue self-education in order to keep up. This unabridged recording is read by Jeannie at Librivox.org.
