Publisher Description

From the creators of the New York Times bestselling series Campfire Stories: Close Calls comes a new original audiobook that brings to life the bold, hair-raising, and often tragic adventures of a generation of eighteenth-century frontiersmen: the Long Hunters.

Steven Rinella (The MeatEater Podcast) and Clay Newcomb (MeatEater's Bear Grease podcast) gather listeners for a new round of stories, this time drawing from the lives of the rugged Long Hunters, who include such figures as Daniel Boone, Henry Skaggs, and Kasper Mansker. These were the commercial hunters and trappers who explored and exploited the First Far West, the land across the Appalachian Mountains, in the era between the Seven Years War and the American Revolution—one of the most fabled periods of American history.

The feats of these courageous, resilient backwoodsmen forever shaped a national identity centered around individualism, capitalism, freedom, and the need for wild places and wild animals.

Travis Sacket ,

Excellent presentation of American history.

Love this title. Gotta say though the dual narration was tough. I enjoy both Steve and Clay individually, but pretty tough on the brain to go back and forth.

Great content, terrible narration

the narration is slow, sooooo slow and clunky, steve and clay stumble through the english language as thought translating it for the first time. Clay is slightly better than Steve but the narration sounds like an oral reading assignement in a remedial english class.
I know this is a lot to ask but can you re-record this and make it sound like a normal conversation and not like a hostage statement.
