hiawatha cd cover The Song of Hiawatha

This limited edition 5-CD recording of American master poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow's The Song of Hiawatha is read by Michael Maglaras. Accompanied by a soundtrack of Native American drum, flute, and vocals, as well as a host of sound effects, Michael brings the story of Hiawatha, more than 6,500 lines, to life for a modern audience. Hiawatha is a narrative poem rich with imagery and profound beauty. Weaving together old Native American legends from many North American tribal nations, it is the story of America's first superhero. Longfellow began Hiawatha in June of 1854 and, writing at a feverish pace, completed it by March, 1855. Published in that year, it immediately became a national best-seller, selling 10,000 copies within a few months. The Song of Hiawatha and all it represents is truly a part of the U.S. national consciousness. 2007.
