The Song of Hiawatha was one of the most loved and quoted narrative poems of the 19th century. It tells the story of a young Ojibway chief growing up, facing his father, the West Wind, in a revenge battle from which they emerge reconciliated, and wooing and marrying Minehaha. The lively narrative, coloured by vivid descriptions of nature and underpinned by the famous Hiawatha metre, makes it a powerful experience to hear, even in the 21st century.

Have you always loved reading but sometimes find it hard to find the time? There’s nothing quite like curling up with a good book but many of us can’t do that as much as we’d like. We sacrifice this special time because we have so many other things to do each day. It’s a common problem and it’s the reason why people on average are not reading as much as they once did. Audio books bring the story to life just as the storytellers of the past did. They allow you to experience the book in a whole new way; in the way the writer felt and heard it in their head. You can feel the emotion when you allow audio books to let the story come to life.
